TAH CHAT CHAI: Police are trying to identify a body that washed up on Tah Chat Chai Beach about 2:30 pm yesterday.

Pol Lt Damrong Songchuoy, of Tah Chat Chai Police Station, said the body, now at Thalang Hospital, appears to be that of an Asian man, probably in his 40s.

“There were no wounds or abrasions to indicate the man had been a victim of violence,” he said.

The body, found by villagers, was clad in a yellow polo shirt, black trousers and leather shoes.

“There was a watch on the left wrist and a gold ring on one finger,” he said.

“A review of daily police logs failed to turn up any missing person reports, nor had any been called in,” he added.

Lt Damrong said the man is believed to have died about two days before his body was discovered.

He added that any person with information that could help identify the body should call Tah Chat Chai Police Station at 076-311368.
