Pattaya investigator, Pol.Lt.Col Banjob Khao-sa-ard, was notified at 00.25am on May 7, about the death and accordingly sent a police team and Sawang Boriboon rescue to investigate. Arriving at the condo, the team discovered the middle-aged British woman, Mrs. Barbara Lesley Fordham (65), who they estimate had been dead  for about 5 hours. She was sitting on the edge of the bed with her head on her knees, still holding the handset of the landline phone in her left hand. She was clad in a flower patterned dressing gown. Officials noticed many bruises and wounds over her body, which they suspected were disease symptoms, but they do not consider there was any foul play involved.

Her neighbour told police that Mrs. Fordham had been renting a room and staying on her own without anyone to take care of her. She had regularly been to Pattaya Memorial Hospital for check-ups, due to her diseases and middle age. The witness said that she had knocked on Mrs. Fordham’s door on May 6, but as there was no answer had opened the door to find Mrs. Fordham dead. Officials assume that Mrs. Fordham had been trying to call her relative or a friend at the time of her death, but she had fainted and collapsed with the phone in her hand and subsequently died. Officials will send the body for autopsy and the British Embassy will be informed accordingly.
