A room as seen on  the Patong P.S2 Bungalow online site

Second Phuket Tourist Found Dead After Burst of Sex in Patong

Thursday, November 17, 2011

The dead man has been named as Michael Heldt. He noted his nationality in registering at the establishment as ''Deutsch'' and recorded his birthday as 21.11.1960.

Original Report

PHUKET: A German tourist has been found dead in a resort room on Phuket after apparently having sex four times in quick succession before he expired.

While there are no suspicious circumstances, the middle-aged man - who was to celebrate his birthday next week - happens to be the second German tourist to die in a resort room in Phuket's nightlife capital, Patong, after sex so far this month.

Security camera footage and registration records of guests and visitors at the P.S2 Bungalow have persuaded investigating police that there are no reasons to suspect foul play in the manner of death of the man in the most recent case today.

His body was found spreadeagled face up on the rather gaudy bedsheets at the establishment about 3.30pm. Four used condoms in a small rubbish container hinted at an overdose of sex.

Photographs were taken by foundation charity workers at the scene after part of his naked body had been demurely covered with a while towel. The shots show a couple of empty Bacardi bottles and a mostly drained bottle of Heineken.

A maid who works at the bungalows in Rat-U-Tit 200 Pi Road, where rooms are inexpensive and spartan, told officers from Kathu Police Station, which oversees Patong, that she saw the man return with a bar hostess at an unspecified time last night.

The hostess, nicknamed ''Wasana,'' signed in at reception, giving her full name, as visitors are obliged to do. She signed out today at 11.30am.

The maid noticed the door was ajar when she checked at 3.30pm to see if the room was still occupied.

Police have questioned the hostess, who works at a bar in Patong's popular Soi Bangla walking street, and accept her account that the man was still breathing when she departed.

Phuketwan has the name of the man but will refrain from publishing it until relatives have been notified.

Another German visitor to Patong, Karl Ernst, aged 79, was found dead on November 4 in a room at another resort elsewhere in Patong.

He had had sex with a bar hostess shortly before his death, police determined from evidence in the room.

While Mr Ernest had come to Phuket with three male companions, the man who died today was travelling alone. He checked in on November 15 and was due to leave the establishment on December 7.

There are dozens of psychopathic bar hostess killers prowling around Phuket looking for victims. Don't be the next one. Play it safe and NEVER use the services of a bar hostess even though the temptation may be strong.

@Andy: So whose services can we "safely" use?

You don't think there would be some sort of evidence in the room had there been a "psychopathic bar hostess" killing the guy? Like some sort of struggle? My guess is viagra, alcohol and overly vigorous sex did him in. Most middle aged guys can't go four rounds in a night, it's common knowledge that viagra may lead to dangerous exhaustion. There is a reason why older men cant get an erection, it's the bodies way of trying to protect itself from the physical stress sex brings. So alcohol, possible dehydration, viagra and sex for hours can be a very deadly combo.

I cant help but think that if I could choose between a long agony in an hospital, or a quick death with a nice girl, I would definitively prefer the second option.

There are dozens of psychopathic bar hostess killers ... and your evidence of this Amos?

Hilarious, thank you for the laugh. I suppose that there are also dozens of psychopathic farang killers posting on Phuket Wan as well. Best to avoid it, buddy.

If you got to go, that's the way i want it when my time is up :)
What a nice way to get in to the afterlife.. And the best thing, the girl left before he died, so she did not have to witness him die.

This was a win-win...

Viagra kills in many different ways. But I would rather go that way than dying in a nursing home not know who I am, or even my children's names.

This is typical, Thailand has always been considered the sex country of the world and phuket is not an exception. If it is illegal then it should be enforced instead of overlooked.

What does this have to say about German indifference to consequences when the sex industry is well known for mysterious tourist deaths as well as a prevalence of ladyBOYS!??
