Dead man found in parked car


A 52-year-old man was found dead in his parked car outside a Pattaya condo.

The body of Sompoj Suknong­bung was sitting in the rear left seat of his compact car opposite the Centric Sea Condominium on Second Road with no sign of injury or assault. He had been dead about six hours.

Convenience store clerk Tumsang Naknuan said he knew Sompoj well, telling police the dead man worked as a driver serving tourists. He said Sompoj had been working long hours during Songkran and not sleeping a lot.

Police speculated Sompoj had a pre-existing medical condition exacerbated by his heavy workload.
