Swiss man found dead in hotel room

KARON: A housekeeper in Karon discovered the body of a 64-year-old Swiss man, the victim of apparent heart failure, last Thursday.

The man, identified by police as Beat Fritz Meier, was staying at the Marina Cottage bungalow resort.

In her report to the police, a resort housekeeper said she found him naked under a sheet.

Lt Col Chana Sutthimas, Inspector at Chalong Police Station, told the Gazette that at the scene he saw no signs of a struggle or any injuries to Mr Meier, leading him to believe that the man died of heart failure. However, he is waiting on doctors to confirm the cause of death.

Mr Meier’s passport shows that he arrived in Phuket April 23 and was scheduled to leave May 22.
