A Taiwanese tourist was found dead under suspicious circumstances yesterday at his accommodation in Bangkok. He had arrived in Thailand just two days before, according to the Royal Thai police.

The victim’s room is located on the sixth floor of the hotel, whose name was withheld pending further investigation. Chu was found face-down with signs of possible foul play, said Pol. Col. Suraphong.

Upon police inspection of the man’s room, several items were found scattered and ransacked. Police took pictures of the incident scene as evidence before transferring the body to the police hospital for a post-mortem examination.
