The death of a Canadian found floating off Chonburi remains a mystery

Mystery still surrounds the death of a 46 year old Canadian found by fishermen floating in the sea off the Chonburi coast early yesterday (Wednesday).

Daily News reports that the victim was wearing trousers and shoes when he was found. Laem Chabang police responded to the call with the Sawang Pratheep Sri Racha emergency response team.

The man’s body was floating 4 kilometres offshore and assessed as having been dead for at least four days.

He has been identified as Jason Williams. Daily News hasn’t reported how the ID was made. Mr Williams was wearing black trousers and black and red canvas shoes.

Police report that there were no injuries on the body. There were two tattoos on the body – a skull on the left wrist and a squid on the right shoulder.
