A man believed to have been drunk fell to his death from a balcony on the fourth floor of a shophouse in Nakhon Pathom’s Nakhon Chaisi district early on Friday, police said.
Urai Kaewsimma, 38, from Roi Et, was found dead with head injuries on the ground behind a four-storey shophouse in Tambon Khun Kaew at 4.30am.
Police found no trace of fighting or foul play inside his room but discovered a trace of urine on the balcony along with a chair.
His friend, Prapas Mayotha, 42, told police that he lived on the fourth floor with Urai. Prapas said Uthai had returned from drinking outside and often urinated by climbing on the chair and releaving himself to the ground below.
Police suspect that he accidentally fell while urinating.
