Police in Phuket, Thailand, were called out to a Russian guest found dead in a hotel room today, who was due to return to Siberia.

'Examining the body - identified as that of a 32-year-old Russian from the Siberian city of Yakutsk - Pol Lt Col Teerasak Boonsang and forensics officers found the victim had deep gashes on both arms and seven stab wounds in the chest.'

'Police concluded that he committed suicide.'

However, police then seem to imply they don't entirely believe their own immediate conclusion in a follow up statement:

'Pol Col Jeeraphat said investigators were looking for the transvestite lover, and would decide on the evidence of whether the man committed suicide or was murdered.'
