A 66-year-old British expat, named as Terence Michael Sims, was found dead in the toilet of his rented room at the Pattaya Pad Condominium on Sukhumvit Road Soi 42 Saturday afternoon.
While the exact cause of his death has not been established yet, there were no signs of foul play on the body and police assume that he toppled over in the bathroom, possibly after suffering a heart attack or drinking heavily.
Pattaya One reports that Mr. Terence Michael Sims
was found lying face-down in his toilet and an initial inspection of the room found no signs of a struggle or third party involvement in his death. He had sustained a cut and bruising to his head which police assume at this point in the investigation, to have been caused by a fall inside the toilet.
A 70-year-old British friend of the victim and manager of the condominium told police that Sims was “known to stay alone and would often be seen drinking in bars close to his place of residence.”
