Soldiers also inspected the surrounding area and saw a Honda motorbike, license number JOR PHOR ROR 398 Chiang Mai. It was parked nearby and covered well with a cloth. They assumed that it was a rental motorbike.

Police are coordinating with area police and the Chiang Rai police station to investigate the Honda motorbike further, to find information about the dead man.
