The 55-year-old man is believed to have jumped off the balcony of his rented room on the 20th floor at the Royal Paradise Hotel & Spa, which is located about 5 minutes from Patong Beach. He had checked in alone on Tuesday.
Patong Police found the victim lying face-down with his head smashed on the pavement and both legs broken. Police checked CCTV footage and found that he had returned to the hotel at 3:11am, taken the elevator to the 20th floor and entered his room alone. There were no signs of a struggle in the room.”
