UK woman found dead on Koh Tao

A 23-year-old British woman was found dead in Thailand on Wednesday, according to UK media.

Mirror Online reported her body was found in Koh Tao, Surat Thani province.

A source in Bangkok confirmed the death but said details remained sketchy. Koh Tao police station did not answer the phone call.

She reportedly tweeted from the island where two Britons — Hannah Witheridge and David Miller — were murdered last September, according to the Mirror.

"We can confirm the death of a British National in Thailand on Jan 21," a Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson was quoted as saying by the daily.

"We are providing consular assistance to the family at this difficult time."
