The girl who called the emergency services said that Mr. Tomlinson had lived there for almost three years.
He had placed seven computer screens on a desk, which the hotel staff said traded shares.
She said, “I never thought he had any problems. He worked in his room, so he was very quiet. ‘
Police Lieutenant Colonel Nithat Waewpradab, Deputy Superintendent of Pattaya City Police, said Mr Tomlinson was wearing a green T-shirt and underwear.
There were no signs of a battle, and officers could not have seen anyone acting suspiciously or entering the room, he added.
The chief of police said, “Forensic officers investigated the place and sent the dead person’s corpse to the hospital.
A notepad with a list of songs, including Linkin Park’s In The End, was found on his desk
