There is a saying that goes along the lines of “Once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, three times is a pattern.” When a homicide occurs three times in the exact same spot, you’d start to wonder why.
A homicide occurred in a motel room in Thailand on 21st June. According to a volunteer who disinfected the room, this was not the first time a body had been found there.
The police reported receiving a call from the motel staff located in the Samut Prakan district around 4pm. The body was found in room 38, lying beside the bed. Two open beer bottles were found beside it, with four unopened ones nearby. The deceased, a 53-year-old man, had no visible signs of injuries on him.
The only witness present at the time of the incident was a 46-year-old woman who claimed to be a friend of the deceased. She stated that they had met online two days ago via Facebook. She knew that the deceased had been a contractor but did not know him very well. The woman said they agreed to meet in the motel room to get to know each other better.
“After drinking 2 bottles (of beer), (the deceased) suddenly said he had a headache. and he started to collapse on the ground,” she recalled. “I asked him why he didn’t lie on the bed, but he was completely unresponsive, so I immediately went to the motel staff for help.” At the time, he was only unconscious but had not passed away.
After the corpse had been moved for an autopsy, the room underwent disinfection. A volunteer who helped to disinfect the room remarked he had found the place creepy. “I have visited this room to collect corpses twice before, and every single time someone has died strangely in it. Today is the third time,” he stated. “Just now, when I was disinfecting (the room), I noticed something very strange. I suddenly saw a mysterious black shadow sitting on the bed.”
Two others agreed with the volunteer. One was a reporter who had been filming the room. According to him, he had taken photos of the scene with his mobile phone. However, he could not find the photos in his phone later. Another was the motel cleaner who said she had seen a woman combing her hair in the room. However, there were no registered guests staying in room 38. “Whenever we (the staff) mention this room, we will feel a little scared,” she said.
Room 38 is certainly an active crime site. The only question is, is it the work of the living or the supernatural? The police however, stated the deaths could just be a coincidence and advised against spreading such stories.
