The remains were found in Nong Sanom, Nern Phra sub-district of Muang district and at first police had no clue who he was. They were searching for the head. 

But Pol Lt Gen Jitti Rotbangyang, chief of Region 2 police, said after a meeting yesterday that two bags that had been connected to the victim had been found five kilometers away at Takuan beach. 

A number on one of the bags indicated that the victim was 34 year old Choi Myonghoon from South Korea.

Tattoos on the body were being examined though it was not known at this time what gang or mafia group he might have been involved with. 

Lt Gen Jitti theorized that he had been killed by compatriots but would not go further than that. He told reporters that Choi had run into trouble with Thong Lor police three years ago and had been blacklisted from entering Thailand. 

The report gave no explanation as to how he might have come back into Thailand.
