Death of German tourist in Phi Phi reaches top level of Thai police | News by Samui TimesFifty year old Markus Steinbach was found on Tuesday evening in a sandy crevice on rocks near the Chao Thai Mai (Chao Le) cemetery.

He was fully clothed and had a green bag with him.

There were cuts to his nose and left side of his head and both ankles.

He had been staying in the Erawan Hotel and there was no sign of theft from the victim.

An examination by local medical personnel failed to ascertain a cause of death so the body has been taken for further examination from the morgue in Krabi to Surat Thani.

Pol Col Krissana, speaking at the RTP HQ, said it looks like the tourist fell but they want to be sure.

No explanation was given by Daily News as to why a case such as this was being commented upon nationally. Such matters are usually handled by local forces at the scene of incidents.
