During the weekend a newborn baby’s corpse was found by the side of the road in Si Racha, a district north of Pattaya. The makeshift grave was located near the Khao Namsap Temple in Thung Sukhla.

A local resident, 59 year old Sangwien Duangyai, found the body and alerted the local police. She told Thai media:

I feed street dogs every day near the Khao Namsap temple. I smelled something rotten while walking to the temple area before I saw something which I thought was a baby dog at first. There were some small blood stains on the road

I went closer before I discovered to my horror that the deceased was a dead new born baby.

Police found the baby’s body in an exposed, shallow grave. It’s estimated the newborn had been dead for around 5 hours. Police are currently investigating the matter, including trying to find the baby’s mother, as well as whoever dumped the body. They speculate that the perpetrator was in the midst of burying the body when they were interrupted in their task, forced to leave the baby in the exposed hole.

No further details are known at this time.

  1. @Ynwaps, what has this to do with legal abortions? I think you are one of these people who just post inflammatory and outrageous comments. It’s a way of gaining attention I guess. Sad, but if it works for you….

  2. @Ynwaps – Perhaps birth control? Disgusting no matter what country. Get your shit together. Such adverse thinking for life? Stop screwing assholes if you don’t take precautions.Your inability to respect life disgusts me. And then the innocent suffer. Go fuck yourself…Murderers.
