Dutch man found hanged from bathroom door in Pattaya hotel
A maid at a Pattaya hotel saw the "please clean my room" sign hanging on the door of a second floor room on Sunday morning.
But despite her knocking the occupant did not respond.
She enlisted the help of a friend called Jaruwat, 34, who is a motorcycle taxi driver and they entered the room together.
Mr Peter, 53, was hanging by a curtain tie secured by the closed bathroom door.
He had been dead at least five hours, said Pattaya police investigating. There was no sign of a struggle.
He was wearing just his underwear.
The man is Dutch and an autopsy is taking place at the Police Hospital.
Police are not yet assigning any cause of death and have not said if it was suicide or not.
