American jumps from hotel balcony


At 5am on August 8 Pattaya police and Sawang Boriboon foundation personnel examined a body of 43 year old Justin Alan Nogosek, a US national after he had jumped from the 8th floor balcony of a 5-star hotel on Pattaya second road.

Staff at the hotel said he was not registered as a guest and that about 4.30 they saw him enter the hotel and take the elevator to the 8th floor.

The man’s body is removed before alerting the US embassy.

Soon after they heard a loud thud and went outside to see his body lying on the ground.

Police surmised that the man may have suffered a broken heart or had been cheated and ripped off by a bar girl, or perhaps suffered from a chronic disease, they transferred his body and notified the US embassy.
