Sunday 22 May 2022 08:49 AM Australian Billy Simmons, 22, who died in Patong Beach fall, had 'sex drugs' in ... trends now
An Australian backpacker who died after falling from a building in Thailand shared a photo of a bag of powder tattooed on his buttocks online just hours before his death.
The body of Billy James Simmons, 22, was found lying face down on a footpath below his 11th floor room at the Royal Paradise Hotel & Spa, at Patong Beach, on Monday night.
He had arrived in Phuket with 11 friends two days earlier on May 14 and the group were due to return to Australia on May 28.
Local police now believe Mr Simmons's death was a tragic case of misadventure and he had been alone at the time of the fall, with friends telling officers they had earlier dropped him back to his hotel after partying in Patong's notorious nightlife district.

Detectives have also revealed unopened packets of Viagra were found in the tourist's room, along with two half empty bottles of alcohol, the Thai examiner reports.
Officers believe Mr Simmons had also used some of the sex drugs found inside his room.
Hours earlier, Mr Simmons made what would be his final post on social media, sharing two photos taken during their ill-fated trip to the holiday mecca.
One picture shows the young Aussies posing for a snap alongside three friends at the beach on Phi Phi Island.
In the second, Mr Simmons can be seen pulling down the waste band of his pants to show what appears to be a new tattoo at the top of his right butt cheek, featuring a small bag containing powder and the letters 'NMNL'.
The caption, which appears to be an acronym, reads: 'NMNL bby'.
