BREAKING: Tattooed body washes up on Karon Beach

PHUKET: The body of a man wearing only underpants washed up on Karon Beach last night.

A foreign tourist was shocked to discover the body while walking along the beach at 7:30pm and contacted the police.

The deceased was aged 35-40 and was about 165-170cm tall. He has a bald head and appears, by the dark color of his skin, to be a Thai national, Karon Police captain Weerayuth Thansirisukhaworakul told the Gazette.

Police estimate that the man died about two to three days ago. However, there have been no missing persons reports fitting the man’s description.
