Investigation starts after Russian woman dies from “falling” in Pattaya
Pattaya police have launched an investigation into the death of a Russian women after apparently falling from a hotel balcony.
Police are looking into the death of a Russian woman who fell from a hotel in this resort city on Monday, although the hotel was not named in the report.
Pattaya police chief Pol Col Apichai Krobpetch said the 28-year-old woman fell from the sixth floor.
The incident happened on Monday September 11th, with police and emergency services being alerted of the news by shocked witnesses and locals.
Pattaya police chief Pol Col Apichai Krobpetch said the 28-year-old woman fell from the sixth floor her hotel balcony.
Upon inspection of the room, police found no signs of a struggle and nothing that seemed out of place or unusual. They did, however, find one of her slippers on the balcony.
Police questioned her roommate but could not get any information about why she fell, not because of not co-operating but mainly down the the language barrier.
Pol Col Apichai said it was not clear if the Russian slipped from the balcony or committed suicide, but will be looking into the case in more detail over the next few days to determine the answer to the question.
It is amazing just how many “balcony falls” occur in Pattaya and why there seems to be more reports of incidents like these here, as opposed to anywhere else.
Her body was sent for post-mortem examination at the Institute of Forensic Science of the Police General Hospital and the Russian embassy was told. The woman’s relatives were being informed.
