Thai man found dead during fishing trip
At around 10:00am on July 28th, Pattaya police and emergency services received reports that a dead body had been found beside a small fishing lake in Pattaya.
Arriving at the scene, police found the dead body of a 49 year old Thai man. After a quick check by paramedics, the victim was suspected to have passed away roughly 5-6 hours prior.
Locals told police that they recognised the man, as he was a keen fisherman and a regular at the lake.
The victim’s wife was also on the scene to tell police that they had decided to go fishing in the early hours of the morning. After a short while she was felling tired and went back to the room to sleep. After waking up there was no sign of her husband so she made her way back down to the lake to find his body upside down in about 1 metre of water.
Police suspect that the victim drowned, but are still unsure as to what may have caused it.
Pictures were taken as well as the statements from the wife and locals and police will be going through the evidence in the next couple of days.
The body was taken away for a full postmortem and police are waiting on results before ruling out any foul play.
