Georges Carraz



Police have identified the body of a foreign man found on Surin Beach in Phuketprovince on the morning of March 26.

“We received a report at about 7:00 that someone working out on the beach had come across the body. The dead man was face down in the sand with his arms crossed and pressed against his chest, when we got there” said Lt Peerasit Nhupayan of the Cherng Talay Police.

Since the man was carrying no documents, police was not able to identify the man on the scene. However, after becoming suspicious about a Nissan Sunny car that had been parked at a parking lot near the beach, he was identified the following day as 66-year-old Georges Carraz from England.

“There were no signs of a struggle on the beach and no visible injuries, except for a plaster on one of his feet,” Lt Peerasit said.

“We believe that he died about six hours before his body was found, so we are looking for witnesses and CCTV evidence that might give us a clue about what had happened, ” Lt Peerasit said.

Cherng Talay Police have confirmed that the man’s relatives have been notified while doctors have yet to conclude the cause of death.

Unidentified Foreign male



A road accident in Chiang Mai province this morning caused the death of a male foreigner, Thai news website Manager Online reports.

The accident occurred at around 6:00 Sunday morning on Super Highway Rd in Central Chiang Mai near Kham Thiang Market.

According to drivers who had witnessed the accident, the foreigner, coming from Atsadathon Rd, was riding his black Suzuki 650cc motorcycle with high speed toward the intersection and turned left on Super Highway Rd.

When he saw a scooter driven by a Thai woman in front of him, he attempted to break but ended up crashing directly into the vehicle. He then lost control of his motorcycle and slid into a construction barrier next to the road.

The man, who was not wearing a helmet, died on scene while the woman received minor injuries and was sent to a nearby hospital.

Since the deceased was carrying no identification documents at the time of the incident, Chang Phueak Police Station is now trying to identify the foreigner who they estimate to be around 35 years old. His body has been sent to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital.
