American Woman Stabbed to Death at Sukhumvit Hotel
BANGKOK: -- The body of an American woman was found stabbed to death at a hotel in the Sukhumvit area. Police believe her Indian boyfriend committed the murder as he's fled the country since last night.
At 3.30 P.M. yesterday, police received a call that a foreign woman was found stabbed to death in Fraser Suite Hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 11.
In room 1701 on the 17th floor of the 32-storey hotel, police found the body of 52-year-old Wendy S. Albrano, an American national, on the bathroom floor wearing a red bra and black long pants. She was stabbed in the chest several times and there were signs of strangulation around her neck.
The coroner estimated that she died 20 hours ago.
The body has been brought to Chulalongkorn Hospital for an autopsy. The American Embassy has been informed and will contact the victims' relatives.
Police said the victim checked in at the hotel since February 9 and she had made a reservation via the internet. The hotel's closed circuit camera recorded the image of an Indian man aged 25 to 30 staying with her. Their last image was recorded on Sunday and they were seen leaving the hotel before returning at around 7 P.M.
Then the man was spotted leaving the hotel with his luggage at 8 P.M.
The body was discovered by a maid cleaning the room in the afternoon of the following day.
Police added there were no signs of struggle and they still cannot determine if any of her valuables are missing.
They suspect the pair had argued before the man murdered her and fled. Immigration records showed him leaving the country since 11 P.M. on Sunday. Police said they will issue an arrest warrant for the suspect and contact Interpol to pursue him.

Stabbed and strangled but "no sign of a struggle"......................
A very cool customer if he tidied up afterwards.

The story seems to be full of speculation .. CCTV shows her with an Indian man (must be her boyfriend), he was seen leaving with his luggage (must have left the country). There are far more questions than answers here .. it would be silly to jump to conclusions. Remember this is Thailand.

I will never understand the police in this country, I am afraid.

If this had been Pattaya then ACCORDING to the police she would have committed suicide.

Dead for 20 hours?? Her body was not discovered until the next afternoon!
What kind of Housekeeping service does this hotel operate?

This was breaking news almost 24 hours ago, not on Tuesday afternoon.
If this had been written and published on Monday, it would have been true to say that the guy "fled the country since last night" - he left on Sunday night.
Hopefully the victim's relatives were informed before this was made public. If not, this is a typical example of bad taste.

Autopsy is still in progress, don't rush to conclusions. TiT

Ones with 'Do Not Disturb' signs.
Likely it's the boyfriend or at least indan man seen there,
but liver temperature and other tests could potentially
place the time of death sometime after he is seen departing.
In which case he would be at the airport or in the air.
What is not clear is " 20 hours ago" starts from WHEN.
3:30PM? 5PM etc.
RIP dear lady, you deserved a better end.

Such a shame. First she's murdered, then her sordid end becomes a news circus and finally she's the subject of the ever popular flame- game Let's Guess Who Did It Because We Know More Than The Police on ThaiVisa.

It was in the bathroom .

Thai language version of the story. Seems that her family name could be Albano instead of Albrano.
Thai media speculate it could be this woman:
Suspect is Sanghvi Ritesh Narpatraj 26 year old citizen of India, according to Thai news sources.

Why is it that the only information we get is the nationality of the people? Couldn't we have some background? It would be interesting to know their job, residence age etc first

Of which you have bought into as well by choosing to post commentary.

Fled the country to where? If he fled to India there may be a chance he'll be expedited or maybe not. Thailand is trying to better relations with India and India is trying to better relations with Thailand. It could have been self defense.
