The gruesome discovery of a five month old male foetus buried in a makeshift grave behind an unnamed durian stall in the Tha Mai district of Chanthaburi province has sent shockwaves through the local community. The incident was reported to police at 7.30am today, April 24, by a villager who stumbled upon the scene while gathering vegetables.

Upon arrival, Deputy Inspector Jiraphan Thongsoi, along with high-terrain patrol officers, forensic experts, and emergency responders, found the partially buried body of the foetus emitting a foul odour. The forensic examination revealed that the child had been deceased for at least 48 hours and the cause of death was presumed to be related to a miscarriage.

The surrounding area revealed signs of disturbance, with a large hole dug into the earth amidst a kitchen garden. The horrifying find has raised numerous questions, particularly regarding the whereabouts of the child’s parents, who have since vanished without a trace. The police are urgently seeking leads to unravel the circumstances that led to the burial of the unborn child, reported KhaoSod.

Initial inquiries among the locals yielded no information about the identity of the parents or whether they were from the local area. The police are actively investigating, trying to determine if there were any pregnant women in the vicinity preceding the incident. They are also working to locate the parents for questioning and potential legal action.
