NAKHON SI THAMMARAT: The body of an unidentified man was found on the beach in Hua Sai district on Wednesday.

Pol Lt Col Chaiwut Sriwilert, a Hua Sai police investigator, said police, accompanied by a doctor and rescue workers of Pracha Ruam Chai Foundation, went to the beach at Moo 5 in tambon Na Saton for examination.

The naked body had decomposed and the head almost split off. The man was believed to have died at least 10 days previously. The body was found by villagers while strolling along the beach to pick up materials washed ashore by strong waves.

The officer said he might be a crew member of a fishing boat who died in a sea accident or had been murdered. The body would be buried, pending examination by some people who might turn up to see if it was of their missing relative.
