A Kyrgyzstani woman fell to death at a hotel in the Pattaya area after noon today (September 16th).
She had previously filed a report to police over what she claimed was a Chinese gangster who defrauded her to become a prostitute in Pattaya.
The Pattaya Police was notified of the incident at a hotel on Thap Phraya Road in Nongprue, Banglamung. The name of the hotel was withheld pending a further investigation.
Law enforcement arrived at the seven storey hotel to find on the pavement outside the hotel the foreign woman who was later identified as a 30-year-old Kyrgyzstani woman.
(The Pattaya News is withholding her name pending embassy and family notification.) She was later pronounced dead at the scene.
The Pattaya City Police Chief Colonel Kunlachart Kunlachai went up to the room on the seventh floor where the woman stayed.
Mr. Bechstein Hans Matthias, 58, an American national who is the room’s owner told police, “I stay with my two nephews. They are students who came to visit Thailand.”
“The Kyrgyzstani woman was a friend of my ex-girlfriend. She used to ask for help as she was allegedly being defrauded by a Chinese gangster to become a prostitute. She claimed she needed a place to hide. I don’t personally know her but I gave one of my rooms for her to stay in.”
“Today, a hotel staffer told me the woman jumped down to her death.”
Police found that she threw banknotes in total of more than 10,000 baht over the balcony before she fell. She had also recently met a doctor at a hospital although it was not clear what for.
The woman had also as mentioned recently filed a report to the Pattaya City Police. She told police that she was defrauded by what she called a Chinese gangster to be a prostitute in Pattaya, although the name of this individual was unknown.
Pattaya police are investigating the unusual case. This is a developing story and The Pattaya News will provide updates when and if they become available.
