Hua Hin police said that a 75 year old Australian likely tripped and fell to his death at his townhouse in the city.

Maid Sunee Duangkaew, 69, said she found her boss James Ian Lawrie when she came to do the cleaning yesterday.

He was lying at the foot of the stairs with a wound to his head. Police said there was no sign of a struggle and there was no evidence of theft.

Mr Lawrie lived alone she said and had been in Thailand many decades.

He was working as an agent selling land.

Police believe he stumbled and fell down the stairs hitting his head on the floor. He had been dead about three days when he was found.

The body was sent to the police hospital for autopsy.

Seems to be a tragic accident. However, the standard 'copy and paste' statement appears, as with all foreign deaths here !

Ridiculous "knee jerk" statement with no basis in fact. Just what are the police supposed to say if there is indeed no sign of forced entry, struggle and all valuables in place?

How do police know that there was no evidence of theft ?

I don't leave a convenient inventory of all my belongings next to the front door in case I die !!

I don't know. Do you think it could be that his valuables, things like watches, rings, wallet, cash artifacts ect were all sitting in plain sight?  That drawers weren't forced open, that documents were in place?  That would be a pretty good clue.

How would the police know that "documents were in place", my drawers don't lock so wouldn't be forced and how would you know all his cash and valuables were still there ??

 

It's either slack reporting or slack investigating or both...

 

Not saying he didn't just fall down the stairs but the presumption in most cases amazes me !!

 

RIP cobber

I am surprised it was not put down to suicide, falling down stairs not good but just as easy to get a shove

 

RIP Mr Lawrie.

I was thinking the same! An unhappy customer comes over for a visit! RIP to his family!

One thing I swore I'd never do as I got older, live in a 2 storey house, or anything with stairs. Some of those stairs in townhouses are more like ladders without any grab rails.

You have obviously never seen burgled premises..... they scatter the contents wide and far and often urinate or defecate on top of the resulting mess. It is reasonably obvious when it happens!!
