A second hanging from the same tree in Chon Buri has sparked rumours that the Jambolan plum might be haunted.
A Cambodian migrant worker was found on Wednesday morning hanged from the same branch of the tree in Si Racha district that one of his compatriots used to commit suicide in 2017.
Nong Kham police called to the wooded scene in Tambon Nong Kham at 8am found Wut Won, 36, dead by hanging.
A doctor estimated he’d been dead for about 24 hours. There were no signs of a struggle. The body was sent to Laem Chabang Hospital for an autopsy.
Residents said Cambodian workers often played takraw in the adjacent field, and recalled another Cambodian worker hanging himself from the same branch last year.
