Tourist Digs Up Corpse On Holiday Beach

Post by kendo » Fri Jul 07, 2017 3:20 am

Here we go again

Thai news media reported that a foreign tourist out sunbathing on popular Lamai beach in Samui found the corpse of a woman buried in the sand.

And it looks like murder.

The tourist noticed a bad smell coming from the sand and on further inspection saw some clothing sticking out.

A little dig revealed the grisly secret – the body of a woman as yet unidentified.

Police said it had been there for about three days and was bloated and decomposing. They could not say yet whether it was a foreigner or a Thai woman.

Results of an autopsy are as yet unavailable after the find yesterday, reported Daily News.

But police are saying that it looks like a murder enquiry.

Not sure if it's the same incident, but a similar story was running over here at the end of last week/beginning of this.
If the same, the body was found at Bhoput beach and was identified as a Thai female karaoke singer (or some such). I think her gold necklace was missing. No arrests had been made at the time I last saw it. Can't find a link for the story.

Here's more. I doubt we'll see any further updates as it's taken on a "local" tone.
