Finn falls to death from Jomtien condo


A Finnish man died after apparently jumping from the 18th floor of a Jomtien Beach condominium.

A security guard at the condominium found the smashed body of Rusanen Karri Olavei, 52, on the top of a parking garage March 20.

Girlfriend Pannee Pongpakmoonnam, 45, said Olavei recently had come to Pattaya and was staying at the R-Con Residence in Soi Buakaow. He’d told her he was going to Jomtien Beach to see a friend.

Motive for the apparent suicide was unknown. The Finnish embassy has been contacted.
