Police are trying to identify the body of a man who has been found suspended from a tree near Saphan Hin in Phuket Town this morning.

Police and rescue workers arrived at 5am to find the body of a man age around 35-40 years and 160-170 centimetres tall, found hanging from a tree in Saphan Hin. Nearby they found an old table and a pair of shoes.

No identification documents were found on the body or around the area. Police believe that the man died at least 2 hours before the body was found. The man has been taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital.

Locals nearby told police that no one knows who the man say they’ve never seen him before. Police are trying to ID the man. At this stage police think he may have had personal problems.
