The body was found in a black plastic bag at Wat Anuphat Kritsadaram (Wat Ket Ho) in Thung Thong, Kathu, by monks investigating the source of a rotten smell. The bag had been ripped open and the body was in an advanced state of decomposition.

Officers are continuing to question monks at the temple, and have checked what CCTV footage is available of the temple’s grounds.

The CCTV footage is far from complete, with many cameras not working, police said.

The body was taken for examination by forensic police officers, who have yet to report their findings.

@Kurt     Are officials responsible for CCTV cameras on temple grounds ?

Question for relevant Thai officials:  Why are many cameras not working, as the police reports? What for than having them? What is this for a incompetent idiocy?

How unusual for CCTV cameras on Phuket not to be working.....
