A foreign man whose age, name, and nationality cannot be confirmed at this point, was found dead in the middle of the Pattaya-bound carriageway of Highway 7 in East Pattaya on Friday Night and he is not thought to have been killed in a road accident.

Nongprue Police and Highway Police rushed to the scene and inspected the body of the man, thought to be aged over 75. He was wearing smart clothes and had sustained a number of injuries including broken legs, a fractured spine and significant injuries to his face, including two black-eyes.

Inside his trouser pocket was cash and valuables, including a Big C shopping receipt which was taken into evidence. Approximately 50 meters away from the body was a bank book in the name of joint account holders, Mr. Hans Kunne and Mr. Holger Hans-Werner Erhardt from a Siam Commercial Bank Branch in North Pattaya and a log book for a Nissan Pick-up in the name of Mr. Hans Kunne aged 84.

Hardly the injuries of a road accident. No doubt the victim of a crime but of course would need a huge amount of investigation on that and chances are - will never happen.

I passed by there last night at the time that the police and rescue services had just arrived. The body was still laying in the midddle of the road, but covered already.

What I found strange however was that the were looking around with flash lights, as it was dark already, searching for in the banks of the road distances away from the body.

This was probably where they found the bank book. But what would indicate that there was a need to search the road banks 50 -100 meters away from the body?

Is there an overpass or walkway ? Perhaps he jumped ? Although if this is the case I'm sure as its thaivisa it will have to be murder .

If the police suspected that the body had been "dumped" from a moving vehicle it would be likely that any belongings in pockets or held by the person before leaving the vehicle would have been scattered along the road either side of the discovered body. This would apply if the person had been dead or alive before hitting the tarmac.

I know from direct experience that wallet and mobile phone "scatter" 50 feet from where I came to rest after a motorbike crash, searching immediately at the time of discovery and in full daylight is wise.

Is it possible he fell off the back of a songtaew bus? I don't know where highway 7 is exactly, but a friend fell off the back of one drunk and had similar injuries, the doctor told him that the fact he was drunk possibly saved his life somehow.

No, broken legs and a broken spine don't sound like a traffic accident or being run over at all... Black eyes can be caused by getting ran over as well you know, it all depends how he may have been hit and how he landed etc. The fact nothing was stolen does not suggest a robbery or anything of what you may be suggesting IMO.

Well, if he's the 84 year old, a 'good innings' and above the average, but perhaps not a 'he would have wanted it this way' speech for the funeral?

No there is no overpass at that location. It happened right on top of the hill at the exit Rayong when driving direction Bangkok.
