An unidentified male body was found floating in a lagoon in the Phan Thong district.
The Phan Thong Police were notified of the body Thursday afternoon (November 18th) at a lagoon in the Marp Pong sub-district.
Police and rescue workers arrived at the lagoon which is about 100 meters from a local road. The lagoon is full of water hyacinths and about three meters deep.
It took about one hour for rescue workers to pull up the male body, which had begun to decay.
Police said no identification documents and no sign of a struggle or altercation was found on his body.
The man was aged around 40 years old and first responders stated he appeared to have died at least ten days before his body was found. Phan Thong police did not elaborate on who discovered the body, which is in an area that is not often traveled according to them.
At this stage, Phan Thong police believe that the man was searching for fish in the lagoon before fainting and drowning. A full autopsy is being conducted to find his exact cause of death while Phan Thong police work on identifying the man.
