A local fisherman found the body at half-past midnight. It was lying face down, partially covered in sand, and was wearing red underwear. He was found at Ban Khok Tahome beach, in Moo 9 village of Ang Thong tambon, Thap Sakae district.
The fisherman called police, who sought help from the Sawang Rungruang Thammasathan Thap Sakae to retrieve the body.
A doctor determined that the man had died at least a month ago as the body had become dehydrated due to the sunlight.
Police suspected that the man might be a fishing crew member washed off his boat when the region was hit by tropical storm Pabuk.
