Man found dead in rubber plantation

KATHU: The badly decomposed body of a man was found yesterday morning in a Kathu rubber plantation.

Pol Lt Prathung Pholmana, Duty Officer of Kathu Police Station, told the Gazette that he received a phone call from locals saying that they had discovered a male corpse in the Tung Tong area near Patong Hill.

Police found the body under a tree but have not been able to identify it.

Pol Lt Prathung said, “We don’t know the cause of the death nor how long the man has been dead because the body is so decomposed. Local people have told me that he might have been a Burmese working in the area.”

The body was sent to Patong Hospital for an autopsy.
