Human remains believed to be middle aged foreigner found in Nong Khai

Picture Siam Rath

 

Police and rescue services were called after skeletal remains were found in some woods in Ban Dong Charoen, Hin Ngom sub-district of Muang district, Nong Khai in Thailand's north eastern region yesterday. 

 

The remains are thought to be those of a male foreigner aged 45 plus.

 

They are thought to have been there 6 months at least and belong to someone about 180 cm in height. 

 

No injuries were found on the skull.

 

Nong Khai immigration has been contacted by the Ban Deua police in an attempt to identify the deceased. 

 

The remains were found by a person foraging for mushrooms and were located on a property with limited public access.

What a nonsensical report, they don't know who it is referring to ' someone ' but it's s 'foreigner 45 years old '.  All of this from skeletal remains of 6 months !

Whoops! The early morning CSI Nong Khai respondent has awakened.

 

PS. 180 cm is a bit tall for a local don't you think? Pretty sure a quick look at the state of the teeth would also assist in the quick and dirty on-site forensics, no?

I wanted to put a laughing emoticon to your post. But its sad for the family. I just had to laugh about the all efficient immigration department. They only go for low hanging fruits. This would mean doing their job. 

 

Anyway not so sure about family, i mean the remains have been there for a while someone would have contacted the police by now. if not then he probably burned all bridges in his home country.

If the body has been there for 6 months, surely all they need to do is check for folks that didn't do their 90 day report.

When the family of this person finds out, it will be very sad for them, however, the powerful and all-efficient Immigration Dept., should have little trouble identifying a missing person, considering all the checks they have in place. The remains may be those of a Nong Kai resident?

You're assuming it wasn't his family that killed him and hid the body.

I don't think their system is good enough for that. They only catch you when you come to them Its not as if they have a list of people who are in the country. I doubt that if they look up my name or yours they know your in or out of country. I doubt the registration is that detailed. However if you go to them for visa extension or something else they will check if everything is in order based on your passport.

 

I could be wrong of course would not be the first time. But I just doubt that they have a system that efficient.

At present that would be a long list on non reporters.

I would have thought a search of foreigners that had overstayed their VISA or failed to do a 90 report would be trivial.

Why else do immigration use computers?

Not tall by Ethnic Thai Chinese Standards.  Ex wifes father and brother are 182 cm and 184 cm respectively, so was grandpa, women in the family are all 170 cm or taller.  They also have relatives who live in Nong Khai and are of the same stature.

Well, I was assuming he had a family in another country, the remains being of a male foreigner. Make no bones about it, I must admit, I didn't think of the possibility his Thai family (if any) had done him in.
