Police were called to a third floor room of SY Mansion in Soi Chalermprakiat 12 on third road to inspect the mysterious death of a 48 year old American man Mr. George P. Stanco.
The man was naked, lying on his bed and had been dead for over two days, there were no wounds or bruises on his body, but they did find a large quantity of anti-biotics in the room along with the deceased pet rabbit.
The owner of the residence said Mr Stanco had lived alone in the room for many months and didn’t have many acquaintances; he just had the rabbit as pet.
Police take evidence but suspect no foul play.
He said he had not seen Mr Stanco come out of the room since August 1st but the rent was due on the 14th so he knocked on the door to check on him, there was no answer but there was a bad smell so the owner used his master key and was shocked to find Mr Stanco dead.
Police surmised that the man may have died from a personal disorder or maybe even an overdose and no foul play was suspected.
The US embassy has now been notified of Mr Stanco’s death.
