Responding to a report received by Police Lieutenant Colonel Aniwat Thichan at 6.00 am. on the 8th November 2008, an emergency response squad consisting of the police, a Banglamung hospital team and a Sawang Boriboon Rescue Team rushed to the scene.

On the ground outside Building A of the View Talay Condominium, Project 1, Moo. 12, Jomtien, police found the dead body of a German national, Michael Ulrich Schwintenschlogi (52). He was wearing a green shirt and jeans and was lying on his side covered in blood. He had sustained a broken skull, arms and legs. Police found 1000 baht in his pocket and some documents, which were kept as evidence.

Police inspected the immediate area including the roof-deck on the 15th floor and then went to investigate Mr. Schwintenschlogi’s room on the 5th Floor. They found no evidence of fighting, or a sign of anything unusual.

Police questioned his wife, Mrs. Suwanna Wantawee (42) residing at 3/427 Moo. 10 Nongprue, who said they had been living together for more than 7 years. Mrs. Suwanna explained that she was in the room when the incident occurred. She believed that her husband was drinking at a bar near their place and he had called her saying that he would be back soon. Not long after his phone call, the security guard knocked on the door and told her that he had jumped from the roof-deck.

She also explained that her husband rented out 10 rooms in the same condo. Business was very bad now with their rooms empty and her husband owed his friend about 6000 Euros which he could not pay back on time. He was also suffering from heart disease. She presumed that he killed himself because of the stress.

Police revealed that they had questioned witnesses and were told that Mr. Schwintenschlogi and his wife occasionally had arguments. Police will be gathering more evidence surrounding the suicide and the German Embassy has been notified of the incident and that proceedings are ongoing.
