PATTAYA – November 17, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; – At 9:00 am, Police Lt. Capt. Manoch Tipwech, (the detective officer of the shift at Banglamung Police Station in Pattaya, joined with the rescuers of Sawang Boriboon Foundation in Pattaya, to check on the cause of death of a foreign tourist in a rented house No. 51/16, located in Soi Nongyai at ‘Runaway Village’ in Banglamung at North Pattaya in Chonburi Province.

Inspection of the home revealed that the name of the deceased was 76-years old Mr. Peter Derrick Smith of British citizenship. He was a patient with ‘right hemisphere’ stroke paralysis and was found lying on his ‘death-bed’ in faeces and dripping blood with a very unpleasant smell in the house. His compatriot friend was there feeling very sorry, because he had not checked on Mr. Smith for 4-8 hours, so the Police took photos and directed the rescuers to bring him to the morgue to perform an autopsy to find the exact cause of death.

Upon asking Mr. Peter Smith’s friend, he stated that the dead man came from England to stay in Pattaya, but after his wife had got into jail he had no one to look after him. As he was a patient with right side paralysis, he could not walk, but he had rented the house to live alone for 9-months, while his compatriot friend who lived near him, usually came to look after him. On the previous day he fell on the floor very hard, and his friend brought him back onto his bed, but he did not go to see the doctor, so he could talk normally, and told the friend that he would not have to go to the hospital. However, in the morning, his friend came to see him but he had already died during the night.

Initially, the police assumed that he had sustained injuries from slipping and falling on the floor, but he did not go to see the doctor, and there was no one with him. Because he was paralyzed and could not go to the toilet, he had defaecated in his bed, before he died and the police will report the matter of this death to the deceased man’s relatives and the British Embassy.
