Burmese found drowned

PHUKET TOWN: The body of a man thought to be a Burmese fisherman was found on the shore near Sangaroon Pier, off Si Sena Rd, yesterday afternoon. Police theorize he drowned after falling from the pier, possibly while drunk. Pol Capt Sarit Buthnongsan, of Phuket Town Police Station, said that officers estimate that the man had been dead about 10 hours when his body was found. He added that officers had ruled out murder, having found no sign of violence on the corpse. The victim, who had shoulder-length hair and was about 170 cm tall, was wearing only black jeans. In the pockets, police found 20 baht, a telephone book written in Burmese and a telephone card. The body was taken to the morgue at Wachira Phuket Hospital.
