The corpse found in downtown Udon Thani on Monday morning has been identified as Mr Vladimir Firsov, a 58 year old Russian man, reported INN.

 

INN quoted deputy chief of police Pol Col Krissana Pattanacharoen as saying that no conclusions can yet be drawn in the death of Mr Firsov as local police, forensics and other agencies work on a quick resolution of the case.

 

They said that national police chief Pol Gen Chakthip Chaijinda had ordered joint operations to resolve the case swiftly with immigration and tourist police also involved.

 

They implied that it was a case of national importance especially in relation to tourist confidence and for those foreigners residing in the kingdom.

 

Representation have been made to the Russian embassy.

 

Earlier it was reported that the body was found in a wooded and grassy area off Wattananuwong Road in Muang district of the north eastern Thai city.

 

Thai media said it was murder. The body was in an advanced state of decay and had been in the woods for about two weeks.

 

There was evidence of strangulation with a yellow ligature. Similar binding was on the feet. There was speculation that the victim was murdered elsewhere and dumped at the site.

 

Police were tracing vagrants who had lived in makeshift camps in the area but who had recently moved out.

 

Various items were found with the body such as a phone, MP3 player and a small amount of money in a cloth zip up wallet.

 

There was also an indication through a tourist ticket that the victim may have been in Koh Samui.

 

Investigations continue.

I hope the police don't say it was suicide, the same as the case in Pattaya over twenty years ago. They discovered a body tied to a pier stanchion underwater. The hands were tied behind its back and strapped to the stanchion.

 

If this body died elsewhere, perhaps the police might say someone could have thought it was a bag of rubbish and fly-tipped it.

Why is it criminal activities, either victims or perpetrators, in Thailand, seem to involve Russians more often than not??

So we can forget suicide in this case, that's a good start , 

 

Now all we need is Sherlock Holmes.

 I doubted homeless vagrants would be well organized enough

to bind his feet and strangle him with ligatures; sounds pre-meditated.

Poor Russian.

 

This is the conditions if a Farang dies. Probably vultures or foxes found him, not by anyone.

This will be added to " Mystery deaths list" in Thailand.

Or leave his belongings behind - including a phone which is probably how they managed to identify him as Russian.
