Skull and bones found on island

RAWAI: Forensic scientists are trying to identify a skull found washed up last week on the bank of a stream on an island off Rawai. The skull and some small bones from a hand and a leg were found at about 10 am on Friday by a resident of Koh Bon. Pol Maj Jessada Sangsuree of Chalong Police Station said it was not immediately possible to tell from the skull the gender of the dead person, or whether he or she was Thai or foreign. He said the person is estimated to have been dead for at least year and speculated that the skull was washed downstream during the monsoon rains to where it was found. The bones have been sent to Bangkok in the hope that forensic scientists may be able to provide more clues about the origins of the skull.
