PHUKET – November 14, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]: at 2:10 a.m., a report of a male Russian tourist found dead in his room was received by Pol. Maj. Col. Pathapee Seechai, the detective officer of Katoo police station, Phuket. He rushed to the scene with Pol. Col. Jirapat Pochanapan, the director of Katoo police station; and Pol. Lt. Col. Somsak Tongkliang, the detective inspector; and the detective team.

The death was reported by Mrs. Areeya Kokesatone, the manager of Amara Guesthouse Hotel in Patong. She had found his body in a third-floor room.

At the crime scene, police found the body of Mr. Peter Zavyalov, age 27. He was lying on the bed, wearing only boxers. His right hand was still grasping 3 red roses. In his left hand, he was grasping a bottle of Thai alcohol. There were no signs of being beaten on his body.

Police initially assumed his death was alcohol-related. The continuous flooding of his body with so much alcohol may have shocked his circulatory system and caused a cardiac arrest. Police speculated that there also could be a genetic predisposition to heart disease. So the police sent the man’s body to Patong hospital for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.

From their investigation, the police officers were informed that the Russian had had a pretty Thai girlfriend. But lately, they had been quarreling a lot, because the man was short of his money. So the girl kept some distance from him and tried to find another boyfriend.

So the young Russian got heartbroken, and drank alcohol day by day. Before he was found dead, the Russian carried red roses, and bought almost a dozen bottles of Thai alcohol, which he drank without mixers.

On the day of his death, the Russian had been alone since the evening. The guest house staff thought it was not normal, so the manager opened his door with a reserve key, and found he was dead.

After sending his body to the hospital, the police will co-operate with the embassy, to contact his relatives to bring his body back home for the funeral.
