At the Nah Yak Beach, one km. from Samae Beach, the police investigators found the body of a white man, aged between 45-50, with fair skin, lying face up on a reef. He was clad in a blue short-sleeved shirt, and cream shorts with a black belt. Police inspected his body and found no evidence of foul play or any signs of his having been attacking. The only apparent injury was a few minor scratches on his face, which police assume were caused by the waves thrusting him against the rocks. Police estimate that he had been dead for about 5 hours. A lighter, a set of keys, Bt55 cash and a bottle of water were also found at the scene, which police kept as evidence.

After questioning people in the neighborhood, nobody was found who could identify the dead man. Police presume he was a tourist, who had wandered around the beach and might have fallen in the water and subsequently drowned. However, the body will be sent to the Police Hospital for an autopsy to find the real cause of death. Police will also continue their investigations to discover more information about the mystery man and hope to be able to inform his relatives and his embassy, when he has been identified.
