Police and forensic experts are searching for clues to help them identify skeletal remains discovered in thick grass on a remote hillside outside of Patong this afternoon.
Locals discovered the remains about 20 metres up from Phrabaramee Rd Soi 3, on the Omsin hill, or about 1km from the Government Savings (Omsin) junction.
The corpse was dressed in a white T-shirt, long white pants, black rubber sandles and sunglasses. Next to the remains were a half-full bottle of spirits and a backpack in which police found pharmecuticals that could not immediately be identified.
There were no identity documents found on or near the remains. The remains have been collected and are being examined by forensic experts at Patong hospital. Meanwhile, police are reviewing missing persons reports of both foreigners and locals.
