A 24-year-old British tourist fell to her death from a hotel in downtown Songkhla’s Hat Yai district early on Friday morning.
Following the 5.30am report of a woman’s fatal fall, police and rescue workers rushed to the scene in an alley between two hotels on Sanehanusourn Road. They found the woman’s body with a broken neck and other broken bones caused by the severe impact of the fall, said police.
Police later identified the woman as British national Maxine Missick, 23 who had checked in on August 21 to the 31st floor of one of the hotels. Her locked room showed no sign of having been ransacked. A window was left open.
Police believe that foul play is unlikely. Their initial suspicion was that the woman either accidentally fell or committed suicide.
