“He had dark skin, was 150-160cm tall and appeared to be 30-35 years old,” said Maj Jakkrapong Luang-aon of the Patong Police. "He was fully clothed, but carried no identification on him. We think he probably went swimming and drowned."
The man’s body was taken to Patong Hospital to determine cause of death, as police try to discover who he was.
