UDON THANI: -- A British man fell to his death from a hotel in Udon Thani early on Wednesday morning.

 

The body of Stuart Railton, 54, was found in the car park of the Top Mansion Hotel in Muang district just after 4.45am.

 

A security guard said that Mr Railton had been been staying at the hotel since March 4 and seemed to be acting normally when he returned from a trip at around 3.20pm on Tuesday, 77Jowo reported.

 

The security guard reported later hearing a thumping noise and told police that he momentarily thought the wall in the car park had collapsed. It wasn’t until he went outside that he saw the body of Mr Railton in the car park.

 

Police investigating searched Mr Railton’s 4th floor room, where they found the door unlocked and no sign of a struggle.

 

Police said they also found medication in the room and empty beer bottles and an amount of urine on the balcony.

 

Police said they are working on the theory that Mr Railton was drunk and fell while trying to urinate from the balcony.

 

Mr Railton’s body has been sent to Udon Thani hospital for post mortem to establish an official cause of death.

 

Police are continuing to investigate the incident. The British Embassy has been informed.

I say!

Stayed in this place a few times. Depressing and uninviting feeling about it. 

Choose a room on the ground floor next time, best room would be the one next to the minimart too...

The accident occured at 3.40pm which i understand to be mid afternoon. Hardly the time to be drunk and urinating in the balcony.
