Rotting corpse found in Thalang

THALANG: Police made a grim discovery on Monday morning, when they found the badly decomposed body of an unidentified man lying in a ditch.

A local fisherman alerted police of a sickening odor at Tambon Srisoontorn Village 1, where the body was discovered by Pol Lt Col Kritthana Putluecha and his team around 8:30 am.

The victim, who suffered a fractured skull and multiple lacerations to the chest, had been dead about two weeks, said Col Kritthana.

Police will interview local businesses to see if the man was employed locally.

Col Kritthana downplayed rumors that black magic may have been involved in the apparent slaying.

The Kusoldharm Foundation, which recovered the man’s remains, will keep the body while relatives are sought, he added.
