‘Golden Boy’ clue to foreigner found strapped to pole in Thai river

Police are trying to establish the identify of a foreign male whose body was found strapped to a pole in a river in North East Thailand.

The body was dressed only in underpants and looked to be the subject of a ritual killing.

The male in his 20s or 30s had a tattoo across his chest staring ‘Golden Boy in Casino’. His body was found floating near a bank of the Mae Chee River in Khon Kaen Province.

Another tattoo pictured  above was on his left arm.

The body has been taken to the Srinakrin Hosptial, Khon Kaen

  1. On KhonKaenlink.com – the site you link to Andrew – poster HOMEDARGON2 mentions that this was probably not a professional job because the body was allowed to float i.e. the limestone pillar was not heavy enough for the inflated corpse. An oversight by the killer or killers. He also surmises that the victim was involved in the construction business and that there was possibly a conflict over sub-standard construction materials – cement – pillars. Also at the foot of the pillar – or under the base – there could be a clue to the identity of the manufacturer of this fairly distinctive column/pillar. Also the pictures on the skin indicate that the victim was interested in Thai boxing or was involved in Thai boxing himself.
