Norwegian dies, bargirl stabbed in Pratamnak mystery


A Norwegian man died after allegedly stabbing a bar worker and then leaping to his death from the 10th floor.

Dahl Frode, 43, the dead man was found on the grounds of the View Talay 3 condominium on Pratamnak Soi 6 May 29. A kitchen knife was found near the body and drug paraphernalia in his pockets.

Ten floors up in the Norwegian’s condo police found a bloody Nongran Sondee, 29, who suffered stab wounds to her throat and head. She was rushed to Pattaya Memorial Hospital.
Also present was the Surin woman’s friend, Natakan Khetwaengwong, 45, who claimed to have seen nothing as she was in the restroom.

The dead man’s friend, 35-year-old Geir Uno Templet said they had brought the two women back from a beer bar the night before. In the morning, they were out of alcohol, so he went to a convenience store to get more. When he returned, he found one woman stabbed and his friend dead, Templet said.

Skeptical police saw the entire thing as a mystery, with many possible real stories for what actually happened and whether the Norwegian in fact jumped. The investigation is continuing.
