Young Brit Dies In Mystery Fall

Young Brit dies in mystery fall

PATONG: A young British tourist mysteriously fell from the fifth floor of a building early Monday evening and died en route to hospital.

Kathu Police Superintendent Col Grissak Songmoonnark identified the deceased from his passport as UK national Joseph John Nason, age 22.

Mr Nason and a friend, aged 19, arrived in Phuket on a flight from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport on November 2. The pair were staying at the Deevana Patong Resort & Spa on Rat-U-Thit 200 Pee Rd, he said.

The critically-injured Mr Nason, dressed only in his underwear, was discovered by passers-by in front of a five-story shophouse opposite the well-known Christin Massage parlor at 8:10 pm.

He was rushed to Patong Hospital, but died on the way.

This is a very strange case and I'm surprised no-one has really picked up on it yet.

This young lad has died under very mysterious circumstances and the police are trying to say it's suicide.

There are conflicting reports about how long the individual had been in Patong, some saying a couple of days and some saying a couple of hours.

Although the police claim he fell/jumped form the shophouse complex, they cannot determine from which floor or apartment he came.

The young man was found with serious head injuries, in the street dressed only in his underwear.

Eyewitnesses claim to have seen the youth running in the area previously, although they claim he wasn't being chased and I presume he was fully clothed.

The young man was apparantly a happy individual that was looking forward to his vacation.

Why would he commit suicide?

Who was he with and where had he been in the hours leading to his discovery?

Where are his clothes and his possesions?

What are the police doing to investigate this death further?

It seems the mysterious death of a young man is not news.

I guess if it was a young woman... or an expat married to Thai..

I have deleted 12 pointless posts &/or the replies to them. A young man is dead & all some of you can do is act like children trying to score points off each other. Have a bit of decorum, grow up & show some respect to this young mans family.

<deleted>, I have to wonder why I even have to type that!!!

RIP to this young man & condolences to his family & friends.

you are 1000% correct-

thanks very much for pointing that out and message- I also apologys for allowing myself to enter that school yard game,espeically at this time...

I hope the family is okay, (as I know the UK embassy here will well look the family, they seem to do this very well)

and that the case will be dealt with correctly

this is my concern because I have seen many an investigation not progress due to some sort of need to wrap things up quickly and close it ( not just here, and not just in 3rd world places unfortunatly)

can someone tell me this please, is it not true that all overseas murders are independantly investigated by UK police? and that the murder/death of foreign national here gets far more investigating time/budget allowance

I can think of over 100 questions I would like to ask that could help give some clarity such as the ones I asked before. I think it is true to say much can be shown/inferred when one has all the established facts in.It is getting them that is the problems.

is there anymore intersting info available and does anyone know the state of the investigation?

Ha, "state of the investigation", comatose. From your handle I assume you live here? Please see similar "investigations" into the female marine that went off the balconey at Club Andaman, the person that did the same about a month later, the Norwegian man killed on the Kata Viewpoint road a year ago etc. I can rattle off half a dozen.

There is no "state", it's a country called Thailand.

All due respects to family and friends, I don't mean to offend anyone including Boooooooooooooooooo

Since my reply of expressing my condolences to this young man's family was deleted I will try and post it again.

My sincere condolences to this young man's family and friends. It is sad that he had to leave this life at such a young age. RIP.

There is no indication whatsoever that the fellow was murdered. In all likelihood this death will be due to "misadventure". Older folks forget what they were like when they were 19 and full of energy and fun. Most 19 year olds do not have the same appreciation of danger, or of risk avoidance as a 30 year old or a 50 year old. 19 year old boys can be fearless. That's why I'm not willing to assume anything other than some kid was trying to climb a building and fell down. If the toxicology results come back in a couple more weeks and show that his alcohol blood level was elevated, your answer will be self evident. For all we know he could have been drinking and locked himself out of his room. It's a tragedy, but all of us can cite similar events from our youth. Orlando Bloom fell off a building in much the same way when he was in University. looking back he doesn't know what he was thinking and regrets what he did as he spent time in a hospital and was nearly paralyzed.

Now before you all pounce on me, please consider a similar story in Pattaya last week (courtesy of the Pattaya News)Honeymoon Holiday Tragedy as Foreigner Jumps to his Death. (At first glance it's a suicide but it isn't , and not really indicative of what happened)

The Adriatic Palace hotel ......... scene of a tragic mistake that led to the accidental death of 28-year-old Russian tourist who was on a honeymoon holiday with his new bride. The victim apparently decided to jump onto a temporary light-coloured tarpaulin that was covering the internal space between floors in the hotel and had been placed there while painting was taking place. The tarpaulin was unable to hold Mr Pebitski's weight and he fell 11 floors to his death. ...........................

Had the wife not been present and confirmed the fellow was drinking, people would be quick to say it was murder because it's not normal to jump onto tarps strung over walkways. Well, unfortunately, people do stupid things. It's part of being young and drinking.

I read the thread and observe it to be all speculation. BG this, LB that. I'd prefer more substantive info than the product of men juiced up on tabloid news. 18 year old boys don't have to pay for anything. Party yes, but until then, I'm going to stick to my belief that it was a tired over enthused kid that drank too much. Sorry, but I have done similar things as have my friends at that age, so maybe I'm projecting. I hope his friend gets some support as its a heavy memory to carry.
