CHIANG MAI – The Chiang Mai City News has reported that an Italian tourist Alberto Menesini aged 69 was found dead at a guesthouse on Ratchawithee Road in Chiang Mai City.
Alberto’s body was discovered by a housekeeper who was employed to clean the guesthouse twice a week.

When she unlocked the room she found Alberto’s naked body sprawled out on the floor near the bathroom.
