Mumbai: A 45-year-old US national has been
found dead in his hotel room in south Mumbai, police said
on Monday.

William David Thomas, who has been undergoing medical
treatment in a city hospital, was staying in Hotel Volga at
Colaba in south Mumbai since June 16.

When there was no answer from his room last evening
despite repeated knocking by hotel staff, the police were
informed.

The police, which broke the lock to enter the room, found
Thomas lying dead on the floor. The body was taken to St

Following preliminary investigations, police ruled out
foul play and believe Thomas died due to some medical cause.

Thomas, a native of Alabama, was set to leave the country
tonight, police said.
