After receiving notification of the death, at 4.50am, on April 6, Pattaya Pol.Lt.Col. Anuchet Gardsomboon sent an investigative team out to View Talay Condominium A, Project 2, Jomtien Beach, jointly led by Superintendent Pol.Col.Nopadol Wongnom, and Pol.Maj. Withaya Yuenyong from Dongtan Station. The team, accompanied by Sawang Boriboon Rescue, found the dead Australian, Mr. John Peter Pace (46), wearing a white shirt and grey, ¾ -length trousers, hanging by a cable from the iron ladders of the water tank. On the ground below, an empty whisky bottle, a glass, a soda bottle, a pack of cigarettes, a lighter, an empty pack of medicine and a pair of shoes were found. Pattaya Police, at this stage, do not suspect foul play.

Mr. Chainarong Pinbpa, (37), the condominium security guard, told police that at around 3.30am during his patrol, he had seen Mr. Pace wandering around on the roof-deck area; a prohibited area. He then informed the head guard to request Mr. Pace to go back to his room on the 18th floor. He had previously noticed that Mr. Pace was living alone and somewhat disturbed. Later, Mr. Chainarong went up to check the roof-deck again and found Mr. Pace had hanged himself from the iron ladders of the water tank and immediately informed the police.

Police assumed that Mr. Pace was stressed-out from undisclosed personal problems and had apparently committed suicide because it was all becoming too intense. Police will send the deceased’s body to the forensic laboratory at the Police Hospital for examination to ascertain the exact cause of death.
