OLONGAPO CITY, Philippines—A Danish tourist was found dead in an apartment he was renting in Barangay (village) Barreto here on Wednesday.
Police said Soren Andreasen, 48, was found on a sofa at 9 a.m. by Eduardo Acosido, the apartment complex’s caretaker.
Acosido said Andreasen had complained on Tuesday of stomach pain and dehydration. He said the Dane refused to be taken to a hospital, saying he had no money to pay for his bills.
Mario Cortez, a local official in Barreto, said Andreasen arrived in the country in November last year for a vacation and was to have left on Feb. 28.
Police said initial investigation showed that Andreasen could have died of natural causes, noting that investigators found no sign of foul play.
