An 80-year-old French man fell to his death from his room on the 28th floor of a condominium building on Soi Sukhumvit 61. Police identified him as as Cariou Ambroise Jean.


It was not known when he fell down. A security officer found the body at the back of the condo at 7am.

 

His Japanese wife told police that she was not home on Friday night and found out about her husband's death when she returned on Saturday morning.

We rarely get any follow up to these  condo "suicides". 

No CCTV? no visitors in the room?

Always a suicide or accident.

If a bar girl dies in one of these situations police swarm on the scene and soon enough have a farang suspect  in custody.

Money.

You need to understand the power dynamic in the relationship between the police and the press. Journalists here simply parrot what the police press release states. They often follow the police and "rescue services" around and simply report on the initial scene provided the police give them the go-ahead and a statement/press release.

 

The press here generally DO NOT go out and seek those involved in the incident to report their version. It may conflict with the police version of events and the press do not want to spoil their relationship with the police.

 

The police here raise revenue through all parties they interact with, victims, criminals, innocent suspects, businesses in their jurisdiction, householders in their jurisdiction, dead people. They often close incidents through compensation payments or bribes not to investigate. They do not want their world to be transparent, in fact, just the opposite. 

It used to be common practice for cops to go around smashing factory windows and then informing the owners there was a gang in the area robbing businesses. The owners (happily) handed over money every month for protection. One of these cops received a commendation for stamping out crime in the area.

He was finally exposed when his wife was arrested for running an extortion racket herself.

That was the first thing that I noticed, but the wife was conveniently away, which always seems to be the case.

Me think that Thailand can easily claim itself the dubious honors as the capital of balcony diving of the world seeing the excessive number of people meeting their demise this way... 

2 reasons:

Foreigners who are have a big problem (health or financially) and think this is the only way out.

Very low balconies which is a problem for people who are very drunk.

So where is your proof that balcony falls are a criminal case? 

Yes it will be sometimes, but mostly sad people who don't see a way out of their problems or are have an accident while being dead drunk

None of articles talk about "suicide". We still don't know what happened, if he felt, jumped, ...

He landed on that wall, on which is a fence with spikes ! The body has been "torn" and must not be nice to see after such a fall and arrival. :ohmy:

RIP.
