Human bones found in rural area of Bangkok
Police are baffled by the mysterious discovery of human bones along Kanchanaphisek Ring Road in a rural area of Bangkok. The bones were just found in the agricultural Khan Na Yao district of the capital city, but it is suspected that they may have been resting there for nearly a year.
The discovery of mystery bones was made by the Ruam Katanyu rescue foundation while cleaning land near Wonderland Park. The area lies between a local road and the main road.
Officials uncovered the bones in the undergrowth near a footbridge while tidying up the area. No details were provided by police regarding the gender, age, or identity of the remains. The cause of death remains unknown.
It was determined that the bones were not present in the area one year prior, during the last maintenance and grass-cutting by the foundation workers.
During further investigation, rescue workers found a pair of grey men’s boxers at the scene.
Bang Chan Police were contacted by the Ruam Katanyu Rescue Foundation after the discovery of human bones was made. The remains were immediately taken to the police hospital for further examination. The police are now investigating the mysterious circumstances surrounding the uncovering of the human bones.
Police hope a thorough investigation will be able to determine the identity of the remains and the cause of death. As of now, no further information is known about the macabre discovery.
Thailand has seen a series of dead bodies disposed of and then found in mysterious circumstances. Last month, Kura Buri Highway Department officers in the southern province of Phang Nga found a dead woman’s body dumped in a garbage bin on the roadside near the Khao Sok National Park at the border of Phang Nga and Surat Thani.
In November, police were notified when a local fisherman found the dead body of an unidentified transwoman floating in a canal in Pathum Thani province near Bangkok. That same month, a Thai sailor found the dead body of an unidentified foreign man in the sea off Samae San Island in the Sattahip district of Chon Buri. A one-kilogram rock was found in the man’s backpack.
