Police are scratching their heads after an Udon man was found buried in a pile of sand at the Phase 2 building site at Suvarnabhumi airport.

thailand-airport-mysterySomjit, 34, from the north eastern province was found buried in the sand on Sunday. He had blunt trauma to his body, a broken leg and his face had been disfigured in an apparent attempt to conceal his identity.

It is thought that he may have been killed elsewhere and transported in the load of sand and dumped at the airport.

Yesterday his father Phoon, 65, arrived from their hometown to express his surprise that his son was in Bangkok.

He should have been in Hat Yai in Songkhla where he tended buffalos used in the sport of “kwai chon” (a form of buffalo fighting popular in the south).

Phoon said that his son had phoned on the 7th of November to say he would be coming home to Udon. But the next he heard was on Monday when police phoned to say he was dead.

Investigations continue.
