A 60-year-old Irishman was found dead in a rented room in the town of Khon Kaen, Thailand on Monday last. 

Alan Byrne's bloated body was discovered by police in a room he had been renting in Iam Inn Dorm in Chum Pae early Monday morning.

Byrne had been renting the room in the Inn since January 27. 

Police say Byrne was dead about five days, determined by the bloating in his body. 

He was removed to Srinakharin Hospital for an autopsy. 

Byrne was last seen on a security camera at the Inn walking to his room on March 24.

He never left again.
