Heartbroken man commits suicide

PHUKET CITY: A young Thai man was found dead early this morning after falling from his 19th floor room at the Royal Phuket City hotel.

Maj Wicharn Suwannasit, Inspector at Phuket City Police Station, said that police received a call at 2 am from hotel staff reporting that a man had been found dead on the fourth-floor outdoor deck of the hotel.

Police identified the man as Charas Srituwanont, 24, from Chonburi. “Charas was dressed in shorts and a brown T-shirt. In his wallet, we found US$272 and about 3,000 baht. He worked on a cruise liner,” Maj Wicharn said.

K. Charas checked into the hotel yesterday, but the room had been booked in the name of a female friend of his, whom Maj Wicharn declined to name.

“They had dinner in the hotel room but they started arguing because K. Charas said that he loved her, but she said she just wanted to be friends,” Maj Wicharn told the Gazette.

“She left K. Charas’ room about midnight. The last thing he said to her when she was in the elevator was that if she did not love him in this life, then he hoped to see her again in his next life,” he added.

“K. Charas and the woman had been friends for about seven years, but they both had their own separate partners,” Maj Wicharn said, adding that K. Charas was engaged to be married to another woman.

Police found no evidence of foul play and are treating the death as a suicide, Maj Wicharn said.
