At 10pm, on the evening of November 17, Pattaya rescue services were called to a scene close to Pattaya Beach where a young man had been found hanging.
The victim, twenty-four year old Mr Sarayuth Kantawong, had earlier been drinking. His girlfriend told officers that he had been complaining about his work and his personal life.
There appeared to be no signs of violence and the police have concluded that the young man has taken his own life.
In what appears to be a sinister attempt by the city authorities to prevent unpleasant news about Pattaya being published, a television reporter was hungrily denied access to the scene by Pattaya police officers.
The reporter says he was threatened and told not to report ‘bad news.’
