Thai police continue investigation on unidentified bodies, possibly foreigners, found in Nakhon Ratchasima forest

Nakhon Ratchasima –

The Thai police continued their investigation on the case of the killing and burying of two bodies of a man and a woman discovered in a public forest in the Chokchai District of Nakhon Ratchasima yesterday evening, July 28th.

The police arrived at the scene on Thursday after being informed of the bodies by local residents. They were discovered naked with a female body lying on top of the male. Their heads were turned to opposite sides. The female body had a tattoo at the back of her hip. No evidence or documents were labeled to identify the bodies.

According to the initial autopsy results, they were believed to be dead for at least a week. Local residents could not be able to recognize the two bodies, according to the police’s initial investigation. Therefore, the authorities assumed that the two were not living in the area and were killed from somewhere else before being buried at the scene.

As of today, Police Colonel Boonprod Prasertsak of the Chokchai District Police Station revealed more details to local reporters that the male body was presumably about 170 centimeters tall and about 50 years old. They were also initially presumed to be foreigners because the area was surrounded by a lot of factories and they may have been Caucasian.

The Chokchai police have now established an investigation team to identify the bodies, cause of death, and solve the case as soon as possible.
