Unidentified body washes up on Koh Larn


Pattaya police are trying to identify an Asian man whose body washed up on Koh Larn.

The apparent drowning victim was a light-skinned Asian man in his late 20s wearing long, black trousers and a Romanson wristwatch. Police found no identification on the corpse and a black handbag on the victim was empty.

Authorities estimated he had been dead about two days.

Police assumed he drowned elsewhere and floated to shore on Koh Larn. His body was sent to the Forensic Institute to determine an official cause of death.
