A man’s body was found floating by a Khanom fishing pier in the southern province of Nakhon Si Thammarat today. Police say the man looked to be about 25 to 30 years old.

They say the man was wearing pants, a black T-shirt and shoes. No identification was on the man and police are investigating. No wounds were reported on the body. It is unclear how long the man has been dead for.

Police say they will ask the Burmese workers at the fishing pier if anyone has gone missing. The body was sent to the Khanom Hospital for an autopsy.

Thai media reported a dead body washed up on Khanom Beach back in April. The man was also about 25 to 30 years old, and assumed to be a fisherman. The body had decomposed and the head was gone. Police say they believe parts of the body, like the head, hands and feet, were eaten by fish.

Nude Panda? Rude Panda? Or NoodPanda? A man working as a food delivery driver in the southern province of Songkhla, has been filmed riding his motorbike while naked. 24 year old Botsin Dueanchamroon later handed himself in to police, explaining that he’d taken his clothes off due to “a personal problem”. The nature of the problem is not known, and police let Botsin go with a 500 baht fine.

The incident came to light after a video was posted on social media, showing a naked Botsin hurtling along on his motorbike, which had a food delivery bag on the back. The video has now been deleted. According to a 66 year old motorbike taxi driver, Bai Aumaoom, Botsin parked his bike in front of a local temple, removed his clothes, then got back on the bike and drove off.

He later returned and strolled around before putting his clothes back on. One woman who witnessed the spectacle says she was “sickened by the sight” and would not want to eat any food delivered by the man.

Social media response was mixed with most just inquisitive about his motives to ride “commando” with little (actually no) protection.

A mother allegedly slashed her 3 year old daughter’s throat in Surat Thani’s Phun Phin district. The child was sleeping beside her at their rubber plantation home.

Police say they found the child dead on the mattress, soaked in blood. They say the child’s throat had a deep cut. 43 year old Bupha Yuensuk admitted to the murder, police say.

On the morning before Bupha allegedly killed her daughter, she had a panic attack and was worried her daughters would be gang raped, according to her husband, 43 year old Sathit Uantui.

That night, Sathit, who was sleeping in another bed, woke up and saw his wife trying to cut her own neck, he says. He quickly took away the knife and saw his 3 year old daughter next to her, dead. He then called the police.

Sathit told police the family moved from the Isaan province Sakon Nakhon down south to Surat Thani’s Phun Phin district to work as rubber tappers. The family brought their 2 daughters along with them, ages 3 and 8. They also have a son, but he stayed up north with the grandmother.

Police are still investigating and plan to press charges.

Phatthalung 20 year old arrested for killing girlfriend and putting body in a cage | The Thaiger
A Phatthalung man has been arrested over the killing of his 23 year old girlfriend. He has been identified as 20 year old Natthapol Dumsin. The man allegedly smashed her head repeatedly, killing her because she said she wanted to break up with him. Police say he has now confessed to the crime.

Phatthalung Police acted after receiving reports of a female corpse being found packed inside a cage outside a house in Khuan Khanun district, in the north of Phatthalung province, southern Thailand. The body was found laying face down, with the forehead and left eye smashed in. There had been little attention to hiding the body in the cage. Police estimated that Kochakorn must have been killed at least 9 hours before, judging by the state of the body.

The body was identified as 23 year old Kochakorn Thongdeepheng.

Investigation showed that the woman had been the girlfriend of Natthapol Dumsin. Neighbours told police that the woman had showed up at her boyfriend’s home on Saturday night and that the couple had been quarrelling. But they say nobody really paid much attention because “the couple were always fighting”.

Natthapol initially denied being involved in the case but Police say he confessed to the assault after a long interrogation. He has since allegedly admitted to killing his 23 year old girlfriend after she told him she wanted to break up, and placed the corpse in the cage outside the house.
