News site Khaosod reports the body parts belong to Mr David Bernat, 40, who arrived in Thailand from Iran on January 19th.

Spanish man murdered in ThailandThe Spanish man had been staying at Nantiruj Tower apartments on Sukhumvit Soi 8.

He was last seen leaving the Nantiruj Tower by motorcycle on January 20th.

Upon searching the man’s studio room located on the 10th floor, officers commented that the keycard to the room was still in the door.

Police also revealed that they had recently received a missing person’s report for a Spanish national in Bangkok.

Since Saturday, human body parts including a head, torso, leg and arm have been found separately along the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok, Nonthaburi and Pathum Thani.

Reports yesterday said the police believe the man had been bound and gagged before being killed as forensic tests had found fragments of tape on the arm.

Police are now trying to establish the Spanish man’s last known movements and are investigating anything in his past which may hold any clues to his disappearance and murder.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Mr Bernat has worked in the telecoms industry for more than a decade after graduating IESE Business School in Barcelona in 2006.
