British Tourist, 54, Dies In Pattaya After Taking Girl To Hotel Room

A British tourist died or a suspected heart attack hours after taking a prostitute back to his hotel room.

Michael Soden, 54, was seen by hotel staff taking the girl up to his room after drinking at a nearby bar earlier in the week in Pattaya, Thailand.

But the guesthouse’s maid became concerned after not seeing Michael around and staff used a spare key to get inside the room.

They were stunned to see his dead body sparkled naked on the bathroom floor and quickly called the police.

Cops who searched the room ruled out foul play – and said they found boxes of Viagra and condoms.

Investigators from Pattaya Police said Michael had no injuries and no valuables or cash had been stolen from the room.

They released pictures of the scene and ruled out an attack or a robbery.

They believe he died of a heart attack or stroke shortly after taking the sex worker back to his room.

They released his passport picture and name in a bid to find more information about the incident from anyone who knew him.

Senior police officer Pitak Neonsaeng, said: ‘There was Viagra in the room and other medicine. We are not totally sure the cause of death yet but we think it’s a heart attack.

‘He had taken the girl back to his room, taken Viagra and then died. We think that after he had finished his activities he went to bathroom and died.

‘Something has caused him to suddenly fall ill.

‘The man had been in Pattaya on holiday. There were no signs of assault or robbery so we’re not looking for any suspects.

‘We have sent the body away for examination. Details have been passed to the British Embassy.’
