Chronology of tragic events

According to Pattaya police, on the night of January 6 at about 2 a.m. police officers and rescue service received a report of a man falling from a height in the area of fashionable residential complex Kondo Villa on Jomtien Street, where the deceased lived.

According to condominium security guards, about an hour before the tragedy, Artem Pakmomo made a commotion at the entrance to the building. He tried to climb over the fence and escape, but the guard managed to detain him and escorted him to room 818, where the Russian was staying. A short time later and there was a rumble of a body falling.

Versions of what happened

The police found no signs of violence on the body of the Russian. The preliminary cause of death is called a fall from a height.

However, the strange behavior of Artem Pakmomo before his death makes the police allow the version of suicide. Perhaps the man was in a state of severe mental agitation or depression.
