The body was found inside a bag and covered with concrete at a house in Nonthaburi’s Bang Bua Thong district.
Saturday morning, police inspected the house and found the body. Police suspect that the deceased is Eliyahu Cohen, 63, an Israeli who disappeared on Wednesday.
Pol Colonel Ekachai Boonvisut, deputy superintendent of Metropolitan Police Division 7, stated that police were unable to confirm the identity of the deceased because forensic police and officers from the Israeli Embassy in Bangkok would have to identify the body.
Cohen’s family member told officers at Bavorn Mongkol Police Station in Bangkok that Cohen, a former Israeli policeman, disappeared from his apartment in Bang Yi Khan district on Wednesday while on a trip to the Kingdom.
The police inspected CCTV footage from the apartment and found that Cohen left the apartment alone on Wednesday and drove away in his car.
