A man who had been missing for days was found “mummified” inside a car, due to the intense heat in Bangkok, reports China Press.
The Phra Pradaeng district police confirmed that the corpse belonged to a 40-year-old man who went missing for 20 days.
The man was found to be stiff in the front seat, which was reclined. His face bore an expression of shock, with his mouth and eyes wide open.
The police estimated that the man died no less than 15 days earlier and found no signs of trauma on the body.
A report was made on Sunday when a passer-by glanced through the car’s windscreen, only to find a “mummified” corpse.
Family members of the deceased revealed that he had been sick for the past four to five years.
They believed that he stopped his car by the roadside for a nap on his way home and had died in his sleep.
>The daily also reported that more family drama unfolded after a pregnant woman survived being pushed off a 34m cliff in Thailand’s Pha Taem National Park.
The 32-year-old woman Wang Nan, from China’s Jiangsu province, received an unpleasant phone call from her mother-in-law.
This was after Wang’s husband was arrested after the police suspected him of having attempted to murder her.
“You are not dead, so why did you make a police report?” the mother-in-law was reported to have said.
Wang claimed that her mother-in-law wanted her to lie to the police in a bid to secure her 33-year-old son Yu Xiaodong’s release.
It was earlier reported that Yu lured his wife away to a secluded spot to look at cliff murals but pushed her off the edge on June 9.
Chief of the Khong Chiam police station Pol Col Chanchai Innara said Wang had tumbled off the cliff but her fall was broken by trees.
She suffered fractures but her three-month-old foetus survived.
