Belgian found dead in Thailand

11:26 02/05/2013

The body of a 57-year-old Belgian was found in his flat in South Pattaya, Thailand, yesterday. No obvious signs of a disturbance in the room or injuries to the victim were seen, but the cause of death remains unexplained, reports Pattaya One. Police were called to the Loft Condominium after the discovery of the occupant of room number 303 on the third floor. He was identified as Andre Arbyn, who had been renting the room for more than a year according to staff at the complex. He was found lying on the floor in the bedroom and was partially clothed. It is thought he had been dead for at least two days and staff confirmed the last time he had been seen was on April 27. He was known as a quiet man who would rarely leave his flat and was found after a smell was noticed in the third-floor corridor by other residents. Arbyn’s body has been sent for a post mortem examination to determine the exact cause of death, although the police investigation case notes suggest natural causes is the most likely reason. The Belgian embassy in Bangkok is aware of the case.
