Pattaya police received a call yesterday at 5pm from the Swedish embassy in Bangkok that a Swede in Pattaya had called the embassy to inform that he would commit a suicide in his apartment at Soi 15 Pattaya-Naklua road, Moo 5, Banglamung, Chonburi. Police rushed to the scene together with Sawangbaribun thamsathan rescue team in Pattaya.

 

At the scene of the incident, which was room number 2/8 on the second floor of the two storey building, a naked body of Mr.David Cavallin, 43, was found on the mattress with his head covered in a black plastic bag. Beside the body was a mobile telephone, and there were clothes and a box of beer bottles nearby. Police believed the Swede had passed away not long before they arrived. They did not find anything suspicious in the room.

 

Questioned by the police, Ms. Nid Jaikong, 48, the owner of the shop opposite the apartment, said that she had no idea why the Swede committed a suicide as he was normally a bubbly character. She said he often walked around barefoot and once told her it was a kind of good foot massage – good for health.

 

At this early stage, police have no further details. They collected physical evidence from the scene for further investigation. The body has been transferred to Forensic laboratory at Police General Hospital in Bangkok.
