Police arrived at the scene with Kusoldharm rescue workers to find the body of a man, estimated to be 25 to 30 years old, lying in a pool of blood in the parking area behind the locked gate to the home.

“The victim’s head and face had been severely beaten with a blunt object,” said Maj Somkid. “At this time, we have no clue who he was. We presume he had been dead for at least six hours before his body was discovered,” he added.
