Police believe Veijo Armas Vallius had been dead for about eight hours before being found in his room.
PHUKET: A Finnish tourist has been found dead in his room at a Kamala resort on Phuket's west coast.
Police have so far been unable to determine a cause of death of the 51-year-old man. Officers are hoping a medical examination by doctors at Patong Hospital will explain what killed him.
The man's room was closed yesterday morning and at 1pm a maid at the White Resort in Kamala decided to investigate further.
The man was found to be dead on his bed. Captain Somneuk Damkaew, of Kamala station, said that there was no sign of alcohol consumption or any drugs evident in the room.
Phuketwan has the man's name but is withholding publication until relatives have been notified by the Finnish Embassy.
