Chun Yu Meng
A Chinese tourist was found hanged near a football field in Phuket province early Monday morning, Manager Online reported.
Chalong Provincial Police Station was notified of the incident by a resident at about 6:00 early Monday morning. Along with Phuket Ruam Jai rescue volunteers, investigator Pol Maj Tada Sodarak headed to the scene to investigate the death.
Upon arriving at the edge of a football pitch in Rawai subdistrict, police discovered the lifeless body of 40-year-old Chinese tourist. A passport that was found in her pocket along with other identification documents named her as Chun Yu Meng. A mobile phone and 1,700 baht in cash were also found and bagged as evidence.
A nylon rope attached to a tree branch was found around her neck. One foot was dangling in the air while the other one was still touching a blue plastic chair. According to Pol Maj Tada, Ms Chun Yu had been dead for around two hours.
An early investigation revealed Ms Chun Yu had been seen by a resident two or three days before the suicide walking around the spot where she was later found. However, the witness thought she was just going for a stroll and did not entertain suspicion.
When the resident left his house early Monday morning, he saw the body hanging from the distance and went to check on her. He then realised it was the same woman and called the police.
