Emergency responders were called and found that the man was confirmed dead and was believed to have been so for two hours before his body was found. One of his eyes was also bruised. No form of identification was found with him.

Locals nearby said the man’s name was known only as Mr. Sangthong, aged around 40. He was intoxicated and had caused a public nuisance at a temple earlier in the morning before the police were called. He was then taken to the police box and after that he was found dead.

His body was taken to the Vachira Phuket Hospital to find the exact cause of death.
