Westerner’s body found in Suan Luang Park | Thaiger

PHUKET TOWN: The body of a Western man was found floating in the lagoon at Suan Luang Park on Chao Fa Nai Rd on Saturday morning. Pol Col Chalit Tintanee, Superintendent of Phuket Town Police Station, said the man, as yet identified, is estimated to have been about 25 to 30 years old. He was about 180 centimeters tall and was wearing a white shirt, gray pants, and black leather shoes. In the pockets, the police found an international phone card, a Thai phone card, a pair of spectacles, a pen, and a handkerchief. A preliminary autopsy determined that the man had been dead for at least two days. Although the cause of death was not definitively established, heavy bruising around the neck suggested hanging or strangulation. The body is to be sent to Bangkok for further examination. “We have not come to any conclusions yet,” said Col Chalit. “We have contacted every police station in Phuket to see if there have been any reports of missing tourists, but so far there has been nothing.” Anyone wishing to offer information to the police, or to inquire further about the death, is urged to contact the Phuket Town Police Station, (Tel: 212115).
