His colleague, who was not named, told Pattaya police that they work together at the place although it is currently temporarily closed due to Covid-19 coronavirus restrictions. However, they live in the building and were waiting for the venue to be able to be given permission to open again. This morning, the colleague knocked on his room door to try to wake him up for breakfast but there was no answer.

The colleague managed to open the door before discovered that his friend was dead.

A doctor at the scene said the cause of death was likely electrocution while he was sleeping. However, an autopsy will be conducted on the body to determine the exact cause of death.
