Thai boyfriend faints in tears as Frenchman, 80, leaps to his death

Thai media Pattaya Eastern News reported that police in Pattaya suspect that an 80 year old French man ended his own life by jumping from the 17th floor balcony of his condominium.

 

Michel Hostailler was found dead on the ground with multiple fractures. He was not wearing shoes.

 

Pattaya's chief of tourist police Lt Col Piyapong Ensarn was on the scene with other officers.

 

Mr Hostailler's boyfriend Siwaporn Pala, 38, had to be treated by rescue services at the scene after bursting into tears by the body and fainting.

 

After recovering his composure Siwaporn said that he and the victim had shared room 965 together for about a year. His boyfriend had shown no signs of depression though he did have some problems with an ex wife in France.

 

Yesterday morning Siwaporn said that he went to the temple to give alms and make merit and embraced his boyfriend affectionately on the way out. Everything was normal and there was no indication that he was going to end his life.

 

Police found no signs of a struggle or anything out of place in the room.

 

But they found a note in French. The contents were not revealed in the story on Facebook.

 

The cops said they believed that stress from some problem faced by the victim led him to commit suicide.

 

A full autopsy will be carried out at the Police Hospital and the embassy has been informed.

 

The Jomtien condo was not named in the report.

Very sad. Too many people ending their life this way.

Whatever his issue was, I hope he is at peace now.

RIP.

I believe that in some - I said some - cases these "suicides" are actually accidents from low railings on balconies.  Some years ago wife and I looked at a number(15 or so) of condos here in Chiang Mai and the one thing I noticed is that not a single one of them had a balcony railing that even came up as high as my waist.  And I'm only 175 cm.  The slightest misstep, or loss of balance, and you're dead.  We decided to keep our very nice house out of the city proper instead.

What a sad/ tragic way to go, R.I.P. sir, hope you are now at peace.

Problems with his ex, boyfriend probably pestering him for money, money give me now.

Poor man just had enough, and took the only way out he could think of.

does it really matter if he was wearing SHOES or NOT....stupid reporting !!

It is a bit daft. If he was living in a condo he wouldn’t have been wearing his shoes indoors and he didn’t need to put them on to go outside as he jumped off his own bloody balcony. Anyway. Rip old fella.

“His boyfriend had shown no signs of depression though he did have some problems with an ex wife in France”

What a callous comment, have you ever been depressed? probably not.

People dont just wake up in a morning and say today i will jump off a high building.

Something ( we dont know about) pushed him over the edge, as i have already said problems with his ex, young boyfriend demanding money, who knows, very sad that the poor man felt it was the only thing to do.

I think it can be discussed a little, I doubt very much he has family that would read thai visa. He was 80 so hardly took his life young. Perhaps his problems stemmed from being a closet gay his whole life and lived his life as other people expected him too and for the past year he was able to be himself and decided that was enough. Whatever the reasons, yes the comment you replied to was callous
