Four Thai transvestites were arrested on Wednesday (Dec 16) after a Briton fell to his death from a balcony on the fourth floor of a guest house in Pattaya, Thailand.

According to Bangkok Post, 28-year-old Naami Keyghobadi was found lying face up on the ground floor of Dolphin House apartments at around 7.20pm on Wednesday night.

Keyghobadi, who is from Leeds and reportedly married to a Filipino woman named Chloe, was rushed to Pattaya Memotial Hospital but succumbed to his injuries shortly after.

According to Daily Mail, the four transvestites told police that Keyghobadi owed them money for 'sexual services' and they got into an argument, after which they claim led to him jumping from the balcony. It was also reported on Bangkok Post that at least two of the women, identified as 'Nong Emmy' and 'Nong Piano', were sex workers.

In the apartment where Keyghobadi supposedly engaged their sexual services, police found 33-year-old Patchara Chaihongsa, one of the four transvestites. She was sweating profusely and taken for questioning, Bangkok Post reported.

According to Chaihongsa, the argument began on the third floor of the apartment and Keyghobadi took a bag of clothes with him to the unit on the fourth floor, where she lived. She opened the door of the apartment to find out more about the commotion but Keyghobadi "stormed in and headed straight to the window where he climbed out".

The police found what was suspected to be crystal methamphetamine from the third-floor unit. However, all four transvestites failed drug tests, according to local police.

Police also said that the stories of the transvestites did not match and foul play is suspected.

The British Embassy and UK Foreign Office have also been informed of the incident, according to Daily Mail.
