Neighbors thought smell of rotting copse was just Thai food!

Neighbors at a block of flats in Samut Prakan thought the foul smell in the building was fermented fish.

It was in fact the stench emanating from the body of a 58 year old man who had been dead a month already.

Fermented fish – or pla raa – is a common ingredient in Thai foods like Som Tam (papaya salad). It has a strong and distinctive odor.

Bang Sao Thong police were called to the flats and found the body of 58 year old Koson Khemcharoen in an advanced state of decomposition.

The room on the second floor was locked from the inside and there were no suspicious circumstances. He had been dead at least a month, reported Daily News.

Neighbors said that the smell of pla raa was often detected in the building but after it didn’t go away for some time they finally became suspicious and tried knocking on the door of their neighbor.

Then they realized it wasn’t fermented fish but the smell of a decaying human body.

They said their neighbor had quit his job some time ago and was renting the room and selling amulets.
