Briton Dies After 'Cocaine-Fueled Argument' in Pattaya

CHONBURI — A British man died early this morning after going on a cocaine-fueled rampage at a condominium in Chonburi province, his girlfriend says.

Police responded to emergency calls at the condominium in Banglamung district at 3 am today and found the 25-year-old British man’s dead body in his room. Police said the body had many cutting wounds on his face and chest.

Khaosod English is withholding the name of the deceased until it is confirmed that his relatives have been informed.  

Janjira, 23, who says she had been dating the Briton for over a year, told police she found him with another British man and his Thai girlfriend in their condominum room when she returned from work last night. The group was talking to each other in a stressful manner, Ms. Janjira said. 

After doing cocaine and marijuana, the Briton suddenly lost his temper and attacked his girlfriend violently, Ms. Janjira said. At that point, the other Briton and his girlfriend left the room in terror.

Ms. Janjira said she fought with her boyfriend and decided to flee the room. The Briton reportedly followed her and drew a crowd of onlookers in the hallway. Ms. Janjira claimed her boyfriend became frightened by the crowd, ran back into his room, and hit a glass door inside his room. He fell down and died soon afterwards, Ms. Janjira told police.

A search inside the Briton's room turned up a syringe and a joint of marijuna, police say.

Police say they are investigating the incident. Ms. Janjira has not been charged with any crimes.
