Woman found dead in Suan Luang Park | Thaiger

PHUKET TOWN: The body of a young Thai woman was found floating in a canal in Suan Luang Park on Chaofa Rd early Saturday morning. The body was discovered by a security guard in the park. He alerted police who, with the help of staff from the Kusonlatham Foundation, retrieved the corpse. Pol Maj Amnuay Kraiwutthianant, in charge of investigating the case, said there was no identification on the body, but that the woman, who had shoulder-length hair, is believed to have been 25 to 30 years old. She was clad in an Adidas T-shirt and brown trousers. She was also wearing a silver ring. The woman is thought to have died no more than three days before the discovery of her corpse. The area around her right eye was bruised, but there was no further damage to her body. Police are waiting for the full results of an autopsy to establish the cause of death, but Pol Maj Amnuay told the Gazette this afternoon that initial results showed the woman had a small amount of alcohol in her blood when she died. The corpse is in the morgue at Wachira Hospital awaiting identification.
