Pattaya police have detained the 25 year old British man arrested yesterday following the death of a Pattaya bar girl who fell from the fifth floor of the Cosy Beach View Condominium in Pratumnak.


Reece Vella, from Birmingham, said he did not mean to kill his 26 six year old partner who he took to his room. Previously named as Wannipha Chanhuathon from Sakon Nakhorn, Daily News referred to her as Kannika yesterday.


The Sun newspaper in the UK called her Joy. Manager said she was a bar girl in North Pattaya.


Medics were unable to save her after a security man heard her fall to the ground in the early hours of Saturday.


Vella who rented the room was soon rounded up on a warrant issued Sunday. He was apprehended in a beer bar in Soi Pornpraphanimit Soi 7.


He was found to be in possession of the victim's phone said Pattaya station chief Apichai Krobpetch..


Vella has been charged with negligence causing death of another person and theft at night. His passport showed that he had overstayed in Thailand a total of 59 days.


Vella told police that he took the victim back to his condo on the fifth floor for sex. They had sex in the bedroom but he wanted to change the mood so he took her onto the balcony.


But as they were about to climax she fell off the balcony, he was reported as telling police.


Manager said in a headline that the couple were engaging in "kinky and weird sex".


Vella continued that he panicked believing he would be blamed and took the victim's phone and went to stay in another place in Soi Pornpraphanimit, Soi 7, Bang Lamung where he was subsequently arrested.


He has denied all charges against him and has been detained.


The Sun reported earlier that Vella had also stolen a motorcycle. They said that the victim worked at Sky Bar in Soi 6 and was paid 1,500 for her services. They said that an empty sachet of Kamagra (a gel that is an Indian version of Viagra) was found in the room.


Meanwhile, The Mirror reports at Vella is a convicted rapist who is currently being hunted by police in the UK.


The British tabloid reports that Vella was jailed in the UK for four years  and nine months in 2012 after he admitted raping a teenager, who he punched in the face twice and hit with a bin lid before carrying out the attack.


Vella, a former soldier, was charged last year in conncetion with the supply of class A drugs and has a warrant outstanding against him.


Vella moved to Thailand to "start a new life" and "get out of trouble", according to his brother Andrayoss,


 “He did have a problem with drugs, and served a stint in prison. But he had turned his life around", Andrayoss told the Mirror.


“It was a horrible shock when we were told he had been arrested.


“We feel really sorry for the girl and her family. It was an accident, we know it was. It’s awful.”

Actually it has been reported he rented the bike , so maybe that part of the story is true. But he's been living here for 4 months so why would he rent a bike only for a few days.

British man charged over woman’s fall from balcony

By Dethavee Theewarangkul

Reece Vella


Police in Pattaya have charged a Briton after he allegedly caused a woman to fall to her death from the fifth floor of a condominium during a sexual act.

Reece Vella was arrested after the naked body 26-year-old woman, Wannipa Chanhuatone, of Sakhon Nakhon, was found at the Cozy Beach Condominium in Chon Buri’s Bang Lamung district.


Investigations showed that she fell from a room on the fifth floor of the building. Police then began a search for a foreign man last seen with her.


Vella was arrested at a beer bar in the same district under a court arrest warrant issued on Sunday for allegedly being reckless and causing another person’s death, overstaying his visa and theft.


Pol Colonel Apichai Krobphet, a Pattaya commander, said Wannipa’s mobile phone was found with the suspect.


According to Apichai, Vella confessed that he had sex with Wannipa in the room on the fifth floor and he wanted a “change of scene” so they moved to the balcony. It was during the act that Wannipa fell from to the ground.


After the accident, he grabbed his and Wannipa’s mobile phones before leaving and moving to a rented room.


Apichai said the suspect denied the charges, saying he had no intention of causing Wannipa’s death.
