PHUKET CITY: A man was found dead in Tambon Rassada on the night of March 30, shortly after he was seen being attacked by three others.
The man, who has not yet been identified, was found at the entrance to Moo Baan Niramit, Moo 3, Trang Road, Tambon Rassada, not far from the area that has been dubbed “the Burmese Cemetery” because of the number of migrant workers murdered there.
The man had been stabbed many times in the chest, stomach, legs and back.
Pol Capt Parichat Jaturon, of Phuket City Police Station said residents called police after the man’s body was discovered.
He said the victim, who was wearing a yellow T-shirt and red shorts, could not have been more than 25 years old, but officers knew nothing about him as there was no identification on the body when it was found.
Capt Parichat said the man had been dead for about 20 minutes when police arrived.
He said witnesses told how they had seen the man being pursued by three men on a motorbike. Two of them hit him with sticks until he fell to the ground, then he was stabbed.
Officers found a piece of wood about one meter long close to the body.
The body was taken to Wachira Phuket Hospital.
