I've heard he's actually Austrian.

Another Swede died in similar circumstances as well last week. 

There's a topic on PA about the Swede's death. One of the BM's there is his stepbrother and apparently there are some inconsistencies about how he died. This being Thailand the true cause of death will probably never be ascertained.

I think that was the Australian or Austrian man who 'fell' ?

Mr. Somphoth Chanthavong, 34, a Laos citizen, was waiting to speak to police regarding the incident. He identified himself as the victim’s partner.

Somphoth claimed both men had been drinking alcohol earlier in the day and that the victim was heavily intoxicated. He stated that the two entered into an argument, which he claimed was common, that became heated. The exact nature of the argument was not given.

At one point, the deceased went out to the balcony and according to Somphoth began to threaten to jump. Somphoth claims this is at least the third time this had happened and he did not take it seriously until the man climbed into the railing.

Somphoth claims he attempted to stop the victim but tragically the Australian man fell to the ground where he was later pronounced dead.

Lt. Col. Sombat ordered Somphoth temporarily detained in order to interview him at further length at the Pattaya police station but noted that so far Somphoth was being cooperative and there was no reason not to believe his version of events.

The body of the victim, meanwhile, was taken to a local hospital for a full investigation and to notify family and his embassy.

That was a different one to the Swedish bloke that 'jumped'. Here's the link for the Swede https://thepattayanews.com/2021/01/07/swedish-man-falls-to-death-from-condo-in-jomtien/

And here's the one you posted https://thepattayanews.com/2021/01/09/australian-man-dies-after-falling-from-pattaya-condo-following-argument-with-partner-police-investigating/  but now I read somewhere he may have been Austrian ?
