“German Found Dead”

Police said he fell from a high building near the graveyard, which is in the Silom area of Bangkok.

His Thai friend, Thongban Santhat, 32, who travelled from Phuket to search for him in Bangkok believed he had jumped to his death because the German had called him on Friday and told him to pick up his body.

So he rushed to Bangkok and told Jor Sor 100 traffic radio officers to help him. Later they told him to identify the body and it was that of his German friend.

Thongban said Hammer suffered from brain tumour and it might have caused him to end his life.

Lokrai Wannasukoprasit, 18, the graveyard caretaker, said many people had been found falling from high buildings into the graveyard in the past.

Police believed he fell from the ninth floor of a hotel, which has a swimming pool. They are checking the hotel’s closed-circuit cameras to find out the cause of his death.

just a wild-ass guess:

I don’t want to second-guess the police; but I would think: the fall, or more precisely ‘hitting the ground’ was the cause of death.
