A 30 year old Chinese Man has been found stuffed in a suitcase washed up on a sandbank in the Ping River in Kamphaeng Phet in Northern Thailand.
The body was bent over and the ankles were tied with plastic cable ties. Red rope encircled the arms and legs.
Police said this afternoon they had preliminarily identified the man as 30 year old Jun Wang who had arrived on February 12 with a group of fifteen other Chinese Nationals who went to visit Pattaya. The remainder of the group left the country on the 14 of February but Jun did not.
Police are investigating the connections the man had with the group of other Chinese and his reported residence in Pattaya.
A one kilometer stretch of the river from the bridge – 500 meters away from where the body was discovered- was searched for an hour for additional clues.
An autopsy is being carried out at a forensics center in a Phitsanulok hospital and the cause of death is expected to be announced imminently.
