Missing Man’s Body Found in East Bangkok Field

The body of Kariangsak Suttilux, 38, was found hidden in the grasses near a lotus pond in Bangkok's Min Buri district Friday.

BANGKOK — A man’s body with many knife wounds was found hidden in a Min Buri district field Friday evening.

The body discovered in the tall grasses near a pond in Soi Rat Uthit 54 was identified as Kariangsak Sittilux, 38, who had been reported missing Monday. Long blade wounds were found on his stomach and both thighs.

Police Maj. Gen. Chaiyaporn Panichuttra said police believed Kariangsak was murdered elsewhere before his body was dumped in the grass.

Samrit Tuammee, 39, first discovered the body at about 5pm on Friday while picking lotus flowers at the pond.

Relatives had gone to the Lampakchee Police Station on Monday to report Kariangsak, a Mini Big C retail outlet assistant manager, had gone missing after going drinking with friends.
