Medicine for digestive congestion was found in the room, however, police say they are waiting for confirmation from doctors as to the man’s cause of death before closing their investigation.

A friend of the deceased, Chanitree “Natta” Sireekerger, has identified herself as handling the contact with relatives in order to proceed with funeral arrangements, police noted.


* The Phuket News is withholding the man’s name until it has been confirmed that his relatives abroad have been notified of his passing.
