From the Phuket News:
PHUKET: Police are looking for clues at karaoke bars in Rasada that might shed light on the mysterious death of an Indonesian fisherman whose body was discovered at the Saphan Pla Fishing Pier in Rassada early this morning.
The body of 32-year-old Indonesian man, Supiyono, was found at about 6.30am about 100 metres from the boat he reportedly worked on, registered as Mann Horngj Inn No3 GTS-5393, belonging to the Indonsian Tuna Company.
The body of Mr Supiyono, which was lying on its backside, was dressed in a ripped red shirt, and blue fisherman pants. Police noted a gash on the man’s head before having the body collected and transferred to hospital for post mortem examination.
Police believe he had been dead for no less than 2 hours when they had arrived, and said they’d been told that the man’s boat had been docked in Phuket for three days.
Throughout his visit, the victim had allegedly been frequenting local karaoke bars to “pursue girls”, police were told, and thus intend to continue their investigation based on this lead.
