SONGKHLA: The body of a man was found in a rubber plantation by a road near Ban Nong Khuan village in Bang Klam district early on Sunday.

Police and rescue workers from a charity foundation in Hat Yai went to the scene after local residents found the body at 7am.

A Thai national identification card and other documents recovered from the body identified the deceased as Ithipol Vacharakarn, 34, of Nakhon Si Thammarat province.

The man, wearing a pair of black jeans, a blue T-shirt and a pair of brown leather shoes, had been shot once in the head with a pistol.

No bullets or ammunition cartridges were found at the scene. There were also no traces of a fight or a trail of blood. 

Pol Capt Pattanapong Thongduang, the Bang Klam police chief, said the man was believed to have been shot to death elsewhere before being dumped in the rubber plantation.
