The headless body of a man, who was also missing his hands, has been discovered floating in the sea near Koh Phi Phi.

The Phuket Express reports that Krabi Marine Police were informed of the discovery over the weekend. It’s understood the report was made by staff from Hat Nopparat Thara – Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park.

The body was located around 500 metres to the west of Phi Phi Leh, where the popular tourist beach of Maya Bay is located. Rescue workers arrived at the scene to recover the body, which had started to decompose.

Both the head and hands of the unidentified dead man were missing. The man is believed to be of Asian descent and rescue workers found the words “Father” and “Mother” tattooed on the back of one of his shoulders.

According to local police, the man was dead around 5 days before his body was found. An investigation has been launched to identify the man and determine the cause of death.
