Pol Maj-Gen Pornchai said it was presumed the victim died three days ago and his body was cut up in pieces by his murderer using a saw. The body parts could be thrown down the river from a bridge spanning across the river or thrown from a boat at different locations as the three body parts were found about 25 kilometres apart.

An informed police source said that the victim was not a Thai but could be an Asian-European. He said it could not be confirmed whether the victim was tortured or not but the right wrist looked as if it was taped.
