A local Pattaya resident has found an unidentified foreigner hanged from a tree in a vacant lot on upscale Pratumnak Hill. The man told police that he went into the area to relieve himself and noticed the foul stench.

Forensics officers and members of the Sawang Boriboon rescue foundation worked with police at the waste ground to recover and identify the body. The area is on So 6 and surrounded by barbed wire.

They discovered a white male aged 40-45, according to Rak Siam News. Pattaya Update News said the man’s height was 180 – 185 centimetres tall.

The man was found hanging from a five metre high tree branch by a three meter long green cord around his neck. The man was found resting on his knees.

Police say he had a minor injury to his right thigh believed to have been sustained by swinging into one of the branches. There were no signs of a struggle or any other injuries. Police estimate the man had been dead for two days. The body was sent for a full autopsy.

There was no ID on the body and the man was wearing casual black and white clothing, white shoes and a black cap. Police say the incident appears to be a suicide.

Pattaya Tourist Police have coordinated with local agencies to help a 53 year old Finnish tourist Jussi Harri Tuokkola. He’d lost his passport, luggage, cash and other valuable items on Tuesday.

The manager of the Grand Palazzo Hotel alerted Pattaya Tourist Police that Mr Tuokkola had sought help from the hotel as his luggage and passport were missing.

The tourist police contacted related agencies to help sort out his dilemma. Mr Tuokkola had neither cash nor any documents. The tourist police then coordinated with the Finnish consulate to help him as well.

The officers questioned him and found out that a friend of the tourist had earlier alerted Pattaya Police that Mr Tuokkola’s luggage had disappeared. The luggage was later found and taken to Pattaya Police to help find the owner.

The tourist police then took the the man to Pattaya Police Station to identify his lost luggage. At the same time, officers contacted Finnair Airlines to book a flight for him as the tourist used to work at the airline and had an open-ended ticket.

The Pattaya Tourist Police also coordinated with tourist police based at Suvarnabhumi airport and the Tourist Assistance Centre to help contact staff at the Finnair Airlines counter for him.

After everything was arranged, Tourist Police and patrol officers accompanied Mr Tuokkola to a bus terminal to board a tour bus, operated by Rungruang Tour Company, to Suvarnabhumi airport.

Good news all around for Pattaya officials in helping Mr Tuokkola get his luggage back and get to the airport.
