Lt Sopanut Nayaw of the Thalang Police was notified of the death at 5:30am after a man riding home saw it hanging in pavilion beside a roti sai mai shop just north of the Toyota dealership on ThepkrasattriRd northbound, in Tambon Thepkrasattri, Thalang.

Lt Sopanut arrived with rescue workers from the Kusoldharm Foundation to find the body still hanged by the neck by an electrical cable tied a roof beam of the pavilion.

Police estimate the man was 45-50 years old. He was dressed in a blue shirt and blue jeans.

Police found no lesions on the body to indicate that he might have been involved in a struggle, and officers estimated that he had died only one to two hours before his body was found.

The man’s body was taken to Thalang Hospital for further examination, while police continue their investigation into the man’s death and to confirm the man’s identity.
