Police examine the room where the Russian was found dead.

PHUKET: -- Patong police were called to a hotel in Patong this morning (August 13) after staff found a guest dead on the bed in his room, with a bloody knife next to him and blood spattered all over the bed.

Examining the body - identified as that of a 32-year-old Russian from the Siberian city of Yakutsk - Pol Lt Col Teerasak Boonsang and forensics officers found the victim had deep gashes on both arms and seven stab wounds in the chest.

Police concluded that he committed suicide.

Friends of the victim said he checked into the hotel on July 19 and was due to check out today to fly back to Russia.

“We gathered in front of the hotel this morning to take the shuttle bus and when he didn’t show up, we asked hotel staff to check his room,” one said.

A member of the hotel staff said, “The last time we saw him was at breakfast on Monday (August 11) and there has been a ‘Do not disturb’ sign on the door since yesterday.”

Police are still collecting evidence, and have been in touch with the Russian Embassy to discuss the case. The dead man is not being named until there has been a chance for his family to be informed.

Who the hell stabs themselves to death? This can't be a suicide, more like murder...

PG makes a bit more sense.

“When we entered the room, we found him dead on the bed with a long, deep cut running from his wrist up his forearm, as well as seven stab wounds to his chest.”

At the scene, police also found a bloody knife, as well as three pages of handwritten notes in Russian, which were discarded in a bin in the bathroom.

Seems to me this has been set up to appear as a suicide to cover the tracks of murder. I can't see this long cut and 7 stab wounds as a suicide.

Well, first off, you don't know which news report to go by, but 7 stab wounds to the chest is a suicide if patently ridiculous!

The story has been updated. Police are not ruling out murder or suicide and are searching for a ladyboy, according to PG.
