The police immediately conducted an examination and took the body to the morgue of Nha Trang City.
The Department of Foreign Affairs of Khanh Hoa said that necessary procedures were being fulfilled to send the body back to his home country.
According to initial information from the local police agency, the person was a Russian man named Nikolay Gusshin, 54. This man had been living at this hotel for 2-3 months before the incident occurred.
Gusshin was found hanging by a cable on the balcony on the 3rd floor of the hostel; he was naked.
Some local residents and staff at the hostel said that Gusshin earned his living by selling food. A few days ago, he looked sad and usually sat alone on the porch of the motel. They guessed that the Russian man committed suicide because of business losses.
