The Bangkok Post reported on June 9 that "an Irish man fell to his death from a condominium building in Bangkok’s Bang Khae district on Friday morning."
The Irish man, who had been working as a foreign language teacher in Bangkok, reportedly lived alone in a rented condo on the building's 23rd floor.
On Friday morning, tenants in the condominium on Phutthamonthon Sai 2 Road reportedly alerted a security guard after "they heard a loud thump, resembling a large object falling down."
(Warning: the details of the incident may be distressing to some readers.)
Police at Lak Song station, who responded to the incident at about 7:35 am on Friday, said that the guard had found part of the Irish man's body in a car park of the second floor of the building, and another part of his body was found on a balcony of a room on the third floor.
The Bangkok Post said on Friday that police were examining closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage for potential clues, while forensic officers were gathering evidence to aid the investigation.
Ireland's Department of Foreign Affairs is providing consular assistance to McCarthy's family.
