Heartbroken Estonian dies in Phuket Town | Thaiger

PHUKET: Police are investigating the death of an Estonian business owner found dead in his Phuket Town shophouse last night.

Phuket City Police duty officer Yingnucharee Longkaew identified the deceased as 45-year-old Artur Mansurov, who was found dead on the third floor of his shophouse at the Phuket@Town commercial housing estate on Surin Road.

According to one local media report, Mr Mansurov ran a food export company with a young Russian woman who left him without explanation in late May.

Mr Mansurov, who had never been a serious drinker, suffered heartbreak and stress and began drinking heavily, acquaintances said.

When police and rescue workers entered a room on the third floor they found a great deal of blood-laden vomit, including some in plastic bags.

There were several empty alcohol and soft drink containers in the room.

Mr Mansurov’s body was sent to Vachira Phuket Hospital to confirm the exact cause of death. It will be stored until it can be claimed by relatives.

Mr Mansurov is said to have returned home by car earlier the same day.

The car’s front end was badly dented and Mr Mansuov was incoherent, said the report.

An ambulance was called, but by the time it got there Mr Mansurov had already passed away.

Finding a bag of medication in the room, police suspect that a sudden heart attack or a pre-existing medical condition may have contributed to his death.

The Estonian embassy has been informed of Mr Mansurov’s passing.
