Sattahip, the 3rd of February 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 5:30am, police Colonel Piitichon Therdkietkul (Sattahip Police Investigator) was notified by Mr. Withan Boonthanorm [32] that he had discovered a dead body floating in the Pattaya Bay whilst he was returning to dock at the Prateung fishing pier, Sattahip. Mr. Boonthanorm in the captain of the fishing vessel ‘Wolwaree.’ A team of police officers along with the Sawang Rodjanatham Foundation were dispatched to the scene immediately.

 

Officers arrived at the scene, approximately 1 nautical mile out from the Prateung pier, to find the decaying body of an unidentifiable man floating in the water. An investigation of the body revealed the man to be wearing a red shirt and black shorts. The deceased’s nationality is unknown, however he is suspected to be Thai and of approximately 30 years of age. The only distinguishing feature that could help to identify the man is a tattoo of the number 83 on his left arm. His neck and leg had been cut deeply by a sharp knife, with medical officers stating that he had probably been dead for around 4 days.

Police conducted an investigation with locals and fishermen in the area around the pier in an attempt to identify the deceased, however this proved unsuccessful. At present the deceased has been sent for autopsy at the Sattahip Naval Hospital. Police Col. Therdkietkul stated that police are assuming the man is Thai and from the Pattaya area. He further explained that it was likely he had been murdered and dumped at sea in an attempt to cover-up the crime. All sub-district police stations in the Pattaya area have been notified of the death and have been told to keep check of the missing persons reports filed at their command.
