This is the Google tranlated page of that prevous link wit the pic of the victims face. Google now has Thai translation or sort.

Emmm, Rest in Peace, what a sad day for his family and friends when he is identified, lets hope the police get enough pressure to actually solve this case and the correct animals responsible get their day on the bridge as well. Rest in Peace.

I believe the Thai Poice are on Monday after noon now didtributing photo's to hotels in BKK trying to identify the victim.

Condolences to his family and buddies. I as well can't belive the 'gobble trob' of some of the speculators here.

I find the blood splatter on the side of the bridge most bizzare..how the heck could blood get there ?

possibly because of the moving rope by wind !

Foreigner Killed and Beheaded

Police are rushing to solve the case of the beheaded foreigner and are making inquiries about where the foreigner has been residing.

It is believed that the victim was killed and purposely beheaded and his head was hung from the Rama 8 Bridge.

The latest reports revealed that the Deputy Prime Minister has ordered officers to follow the case closely and look into influential people both domestically and internationally.

Today, Police Lieutenant-General Utcharat Hemtanont, investigating officer of Bavornmongkol Police Station, revealed that since the discovery of the human head on Rama 8 Bridge yesterday, the police have sent the head to be identified at Siriraj Hospital.

At the moment, the investigation unit of the Metropolitan Police 7 is also conducting an investigation to determine the identity of the victim by cooperating with the Foreign Affairs Division, the Immigration Bureau, as well as the neighborhood where foreigners live in order to find out the victim's identity.

Police Lieutenant-General Utcharat added that the murderer must have planned the beheading ahead of time.

The murderer seemed to be adept at using a sharp weapon and cut the victim's head off out of anger and then hung the head in public.

The police will also conduct investigations regarding the message that was left at the crime scene to solve the murder.

Moreover, the police have contacted the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration to ask for footage from the two closed circuit cameras on the bridge and will watch to see if there has been any suspicious activity on the bridge in the last eight hours.

It has been reported that the cameras are surveillance cameras and the BMA's cameras are being fixed. However, officers have been sent out to ask around in tourist areas such as guesthouses on Khao San Road and in Nana area whether any foreigners have gone missing.

The latest reports revealed that Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban has been notified about the murder and has ordered officers to follow the case closely and look into influential people both domestically and internationally.

Also, the police have sought cooperation from the public on this case.

The Deputy Prime Minister believes that the matter has nothing to do with the visa on arrival issue as crime handling and tourism promotion are different issues and said that this will not affect the upcoming ASEAN Summit.

Not that tourists should be concerned, but this definitely won't look good on the front pages.

How long until the BIB roll out a suspect. Normally by now some high ranking sleuth has solved the crime and someone is paraded around on the 6pm news. It may well be that Khunying Porntip might actually have something useful to do in the next couple of days. Hope they don't put the re-enactment on the TV.

If the guys head was put in a plastic bag and the bag tied up, how on earth is there blood spatter all over the bridge??????

The guy obviously put a bag over his head put the rope over the bag and around his neck, jumped from the bridge, his weight pulling the rope around his neck severing the head from the body. The body falls into the river and the head is hanging from the bridge with the rope around the plastic bag. Simple.

Most likely scenario in my opinion.

I don't know Watson. Who the hel_l knows what's going through the head of a guy about to commit suicide. Wanted to make sure I guess. But I am no mind reader.

i read another news article that the head was clearly severed with a sharp object, not a ripping off from a free fall

probably the rope was coiled up in the plastic bag though he could have had it over his head to ensure quick asphyxiation in case the hanging attempt went wrong real

i don't buy it, I mean there are other ways to go (trying to tread lightly here). Seems to me no need to bag yourself, the rope would have strangled him if it didn't first break his neck.

Anyways, surely forensics can tell how long the man has been dead - meaning if it was assisted decapitation and then placed on the bridge or he just jumped as you say.

sad story either way. rediculous comment from the official as someone else already pointed out.

I read another article that said torn.

You would think it would be pretty obvious if the head was either cut from the body or ripped. But the police have already ruled out suicide so who knows??

I thought the same, although hard to tell for sure. I remember reading somewhere that hangmen have to calculate the length of the rope (and hence the fall) quite accurately to prevent decapitation when hanging. The heavier the body, the shorter the rope required. A 5m rope would be far too long and would likely lead to decapitation, and by some freak of circumstance, the head and Puma bag remained attached.

you would think those who were not trained in this field would just keep their mouth shut, but instead all you see in every post are words like "obviously" "probably" "of course" "definitely".. etc etc etc.

why not just <deleted>?

I am not trained in bridge jumping true, but for your second point, you first?
