Body found floating at fishing port

PHUKET TOWN: The body of a man believed to be a fisherman was found floating near a fishing wharf on Soi Si Sena yesterday morning. Pol Maj Sanya Thongsawas of the Phuket Town Police Station told the Gazette that the man, as yet unidentified, was wearing only blue jeans and a white amulet string around his waist. He is estimated to have been 25-30 years old and is thought to have died at least one or two days before his body was found. The cause of death was stab wounds to the stomach, neck, left ear and back, Pol Maj Sanya said. As with earlier murders in the port, the wounds are thought to have been inflicted with a sharpened steel reinforcing bar. Witnesses said that they found the body floating next to the wharf. They pulled it from the water and then called the police. This is the fifth body found in the fishing port area this year.
