Metropolitan police have launched an investigation after human body parts were found washed up along different locations of the Chao Phraya River.
On Saturday morning, a worker at Thanon Mangsachart dockyard went to investigate an usual foul smell coming close to where he was working in the Bang Phlat area of the city. The worker called police when he saw a human arm washed up in the undergrowth of the riverbank.
Throughout Sunday, police were then called to various locations throughout the district as more body parts started to be discovered.
Around lunch time, the operator of a long tail boat discovered part of a human leg in the river in Nonthaburi.
A local man then reported discovering a human torso in water close to Wat Phothongbon also in Nonthaburi.
A short time later, local residents alerted police after they found a head wrapped in a plastic bag next to the their house on the river, close to where the human torso was found.
Police told reporters that initial examinations of the body suggested that they had come from an Asian man, however, they would need to wait for a proper medical report to determine if the body parts are from the same person.
Police are also studying missing person reports and taking witness statements from those who discovered the parts to try and establish any information on the victim.
