PATTAYA – July 24,2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 7:30 a.m., Pol. Lt. Col. Weerawut Meelai, investigation officer of Pattaya police station Chonburi, received a report that a foreigner had fallen from a 8th floor hotel room in soi Pattaya 12, moo 10, Nongprue, Banglamoong, Chonburi. So he went with a police team and the rescue team of Sawan Boriboon foundation Pattaya.

At the scene, the man was identified as Mr. Poirters Johannes Adrianus Antonius Maria, 63, a Dutch native. He had crashed into the ground forcefully, and his arms and legs had multiple fractures. He was lying on his back near an air compressor, wearing only a pair of shorts with black and red print.

The first person to see the body was a Family Mart employee who was going to the toilet. The startled man then called the hotel staff, who checked and found that he was staying at room 2815 on the 8th floor. They searched the room and saw nothing strange, just an empty bottle of alcohol. The door to the terrace was open, and when looking down toward the ground, the body could be clearly seen.

The hotel staff told police that Mr. Poirters had checked in on June 27, and was due to check out on July 24. He had brought a Thai girl to sleep in his room, but she had not come for several days.

Police checked the CCTVs, which showed the man hitting the ground at 1:49 a.m. He was not found until morning by the Family Mart employee. The police speculated that Mr. Poirters had drunk alcohol, then perhaps wanted to smoke or sit outside for some fresh air outside his room, but accidentally fell off the terrace.

The police recorded the details of their investigation and search, along with the CCTV footage. They sent the body to the forensic police department at Royal Thai Police to find the real cause of death, so they can report the death to the embassy.
