PHUKET – Lt Col Sutthichai Thianpho of the Patong Police has told reporters that Police are still trying to determine if the death of 19-year-old Ida Maria Bexar from Finland.
Ida Maria Bexar, 19, apparently fell from the rooftop of the Good Dreams Guesthouse onto the roof of a nearby building in the early hours of the morning. However, her body was not discovered until that afternoonÂ the Phuket News reported.
Police said â€œThe victim was wearing a T-shirt and short jeans and we found her purse nearby. She had been dead for more than 10 hours before her body was found.â€
A resident at the Good Dreams Guesthouse reported hearing a loud noise some time after returning home from work at about 3:20am.
She told police that it sounded as if something had crashed onto the roof of the adjacent low-rise building, but didnâ€™t investigate, as she knew foreigners often went up to the rooftop late at night to socialize, and assumed someone up there had dropped or thrown something.
Lt Col Sutthichai Thianpho said Swedish national Robert Dahlman, 26 and Miss Bexar had gotten into an argument on the bottom floor of the guesthouse after they and 5 other friends had been out drinking at the Stockholm Syndrome bar on Bangla Road that night.
However, he said he has no idea what happened to Ms Bexar, as he went directly to his room after leaving Miss Bexar.â€ said Col Sutthichai.
Dahlmasn told police he thinks that maybe she felt he had hurt her feelings so decided to take her own life.â€
Lt Col Sutthichai Thianpho said â€œWe are still investigating wthe cause of Ms Bexar’s fall, we have yet to rule out any possibility.â€ Police are examining CCTV footage to see if it can help in their investigation.
