Brazilian found dead in Phuket guesthouse

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: A Brazilian tourist was found dead in his Phuket hotel room on Tuesday after he and a male friend brought two Patong bar hostesses back to their room.

The body of the deceased, 30-year-old Daniel Rocha Jordan Brasileiro, is under examination at Patong Hospital.

A member of the staff at the guest house where the pair were staying said the men checked in the day before.

Daniel, who had been living in New Zealand, checked into the country with his Brazilian passport, said police.

The men returned at about 3am with two bargirls, who they took up to their second floor room in the guest house located on Soi Foodland, not far from the epicenter of the Patong nightlife scene on Soi Bangla.

“I saw one of the two girls leave our guesthouse at about 6am. I don’t know about the other girl, because I went out to buy some food in the morning,” said the staff member.

“At about 8am his friend came down and told us Mr Brasileiro had died, so we called the Patong Police,” he said.

Phuket Kusoldharm Foundation workers transported the body to the Patong Hospital morgue at about 11:30am, after which time the friend quickly checked out and left, she added.

According to Patong Police, the friend told them Mr Brasileiro was having respiratory difficulties on the night he died. The duty officer this morning declined to give more information about the case.

A reliable source who was at the scene told the Phuket Gazette that a quantity of erectile dysfunction medicine was found in the room.
