GPS tracking leads to dead French man but mystery surrounds why he died
Mystery surrounds the death of a 68 year old French man after he was found dead in his rented home in Sri Racha by a car rental man.
Michel Bachellerique had rented a car in Pattaya but when he failed to return it by Monday the company checked the GPS in the vehicle and saw it had not moved for two days.
Sunthorn Tolong, 56, followed the tracking signal to a two story house yesterday where the front gate had been left open. Inside he saw blood downstairs and immediately called security who contacted the Nong Kham police.
Police found a lot of blood all over the floor downstairs. In an upstairs bedroom by the side of the bed they found the dead man who was naked. There was also a lot of blood in the bedroom.
He had been dead for about four days. His next door neighbor Janthakarn Chamjaidee, 32, said she had not seen him for four days.
He had lived alone in the rented town house, located in the Bung area of Sri Racha, for about two years and she would see him most mornings walking to a local convenience store.
She said he kept himself to himself and she had not seen anyone else in the last few days going into the house.
Police called in forensics officers to make a full examination of the scene and the body has been sent for autopsy.
