A New Zealand tourist was found dead in a condominium room in Chiang Mai Sunday night, police said.
 

Pol Lt Pirawat Chaisomsri, deputy inspector of Muang Chiang Mai police station said the body of Warwick Ernest Purser, 79, was found in a pool of blood beside his bed in a room on the 12th floor of the Galare Thong Condominium on Chang Klan Road in Muang district at 7.30pm.

 

A doctor from the Chiang Mai Hospital was unable to determine cause of death at the scene and the body has been transferred to the hospital for autopsy.

 

The owner of the rented room said Purser, who lived alone, had been renting the room for six years.

 

He added that he had last seen Purser the previous week and after not hearing from him for several days used a spare key to open the room and found the body.
