Former Outrigger GM found dead in bed

PHUKET: A former General Manager of Outrigger Hotels and Resorts was found dead at his luxury villa in Cherng Thalay early yesterday afternoon.

William Marshall, 55, was found in his bed by his wife. There were no signs of a struggle, police said.

Mr Marshall’s wife, Grace Lee Marshall, 49, told police that the couple had slept in the same bed the night before.

“When I got up, I didn’t notice anything unusual,” she said. “After a few hours passed, he didn’t get up. I went to wake him up, but I couldn’t.”

Mrs Marshall called the police, who arrived at the house at about 1:45pm to find her and the couple’s son and daughter crying by their swimming pool.

“I believe he had been dead for more than three hours,” said Lt Jirasak Sungwisut of the Cherng Thalay Police.

Mr Marshall’s body was taken to Thalang Hospital to determine the cause of death.
