Pattaya, Thailand — A 76-year-old British expat was found dead in his Pattaya home Sunday morning after falling in his bathroom on Saturday night.
Police said there were no signs of physical assault, and the body of Smith Peter Derick was transferred for the usual autopsy, according to reports.
Derick rented the house nearly nine months ago, according to his friends.
He was paralysed on the right side of his body and seldom left the house, but usually welcomed visits by a nearby friend.
On Saturday night he told his friend he had slipped in his bathroom, but that he was alright and would not seek medical attention. The neighbor found him dead on his bed the next morning.
