Chonburi –

An unidentified man was found dead with a broken skull, legs, and arms on a remote rural road in the Phanat Nikhom district.

The Panat Nikhom Police was notified of the body over this past weekend near a road in the Ta Kham sub-district.

Police and rescue workers arrived at the scene to find the body of the man who appeared to be aged around 60. His skull, arms, and legs were broken. No identification documents were found with him. His body was taken to a local hospital. It was unclear exactly how long he had been deceased as his body was decaying while lying in the heat of the midday under the hot sun. Additionally, this particular road was not traveled regularly.

Local residents nearby told police they had never seen the man in the area before. The man might be from another district or another province, they surmised. However, they had no explanation for why the man would be walking without a vehicle in a very remote, rural area without any major businesses.

At this stage, Panat Nikhom police believe the man might have been hit by a vehicle whose driver then sped away. However, they are continuing their investigation to identify the man and his cause of death. If another driver was involved, police stated they would open up an investigation into their identity as well.

Unfortunately, due to the remoteness of the area, CCTV is not an option.
