A police officer was found dead under mysterious circumstances yesterday at a beauty salon in Samut Prakan following concerns from his wife who had been unable to contact him.

Police Lieutenant Apisit Tonsalee from Bang Phli Police Station reported receiving a call at 11pm yesterday about a deceased person at a beauty salon located within the police officers’ residential flats in Bang Phli Yai. Emergency response teams rushed to the scene to investigate.

The five-story building, where the ground floor operates as a beauty salon, was where the body of 59 year old Police Lieutenant Colonel Natthakit was discovered. Natthakit, who served as a traffic deputy inspector at Bang Kaeo Police Station and had been assisting the investigation team as a driver, was found sitting lifeless in a chair.

The officer was dressed in a white crew-neck shirt and khaki trousers. Upon inspection, no signs of physical assault were found, and the condition of the salon remained undisturbed. It is estimated that he had been dead for more than five hours.

Uraiwan, a 46 year old friend of Natthakit’s wife, recounted that Natthakit’s wife, who was out of town, called her at 10.30pm to check on her husband since she had been unable to reach him. Uraiwan first checked the fifth-floor apartment but found it locked and empty.

“I then went down to the beauty salon and saw him sitting on a chair inside. I called out, but he didn’t respond, and the glass door was locked. We decided to break the glass to get inside and found that he had already passed away.”

Uraiwan immediately informed Natthakit’s wife and contacted the police, reported KhaoSod.

After assessing the scene, Lieutenant Apisit directed that Natthakit’s body be sent to Ramathibodi Chakri Naruebodindra Hospital in Samut Prakan for an autopsy to determine the cause of death according to legal procedures.
