On the morning of 9 January 2008, Pattaya Police Lieutenant Colonel Tanagrit, along with Sawang Boriboon Rescue, responded to a report of a deceased foreigner in Room 521/494 of the Niran Grand Condo on Soi Arunothai, Central Pattaya. The lifeless body of Mr. Scott Martin Hibberd (49), from North Island, England, was found inside the bathroom by a security guard and a friend of the deceased. The deceased man was clad in gray shorts and was not wearing a shirt. There were several bruises on his body and his mouth was full of saliva. On inspecting the room, police found ten pornographic videos, as well as, a number of Viagra tablets.

Police questioned Mr. Leslie Hall (60), a friend of Mr. Hibberd, the deceased man, who explained that he had become concerned when Mr. Hibberd hadn’t answered his phone. He became alarmed, further, when his friend didn’t answer his door on Wednesday morning.

A security guard at the complex opened the door to the room, where Mr. Hibberd’s body was discovered. According to people who knew him, Mr. Hibberd was an active man who was often seen at the complex’s swimming pool. The victim’s friend, Mr. Hall, lived on the same floor as Mr. Hibberd, in Room 521 /498. He mentioned that the victim did not have to work, as he came from a wealthy family in North Island.

Officials believe that Mr. Hibberd died of natural causes. However, there was no evidence that he had been suffering from any illness. The case will remain open until after an autopsy is conducted. The British Embassy has been informed of the case.
