Pattaya police and Sawang Boriboon rescue services were called after the body of a foreign tourist was found floating face down 400 meters off a beach at Koh Larn, Chonburi. 

 

The level of decomposition indicated that the man had been there for 2 days. He was found around 1.30 pm yesterday.

 

He was dressed in black with jeans. By his legs was an orange life jacket.

 

His neck was tied to a rope that was attached to a rock to weigh down the body.

 

Also found was a black bag. It contained a phone charger, neck support pillow, underpants and a handkerchief. 

 

A Sawang Boriboon worker said that no motive or cause had yet been established. 

 

The body was sent for autopsy.

But why did he bring his phone charger but not his phone, and no wallet? Sure it could have been dropped and not found but it's odd.

He was wearing jeans but no mention of a bag of any description. With the rock attached to his neck he would have been flowing head down and phone and wallet could easily have slipped out from his pockets.

Why would they give a murder victim a life jacket?

 

I was a bit confused by this at first. A rock tied to his neck and a life jacket by his feet. How puzzling.

 

Then the penny dropped. Float the rock out to sea in the life jacket, throw the rock overboard and down you go. I'll go for suicide. Very sad and somewhat disturbing that there are so many here.

I'm glad you explained that. I was thinking it couldn't be murder too.

if still a murder, the perp may have assumed a cheap vest would have failed quickly, providing the delay fuse for sinking the rock?
