An unidentified white man was found hanged from a water tank platform inside the compound of a Sattahip house that had been burned to the ground early Thursday.

Police and fire officials were alerted to a fire at a house on Soi Sattahip Sukhumvit 13 in Moo 4 village in Chon Buri's Sattahip district.

When firefighters arrived, the blaze had already engulfed the entire Thai traditional wooden house in a fenced two-rai (0.3-hectare) plot. Firefighters took about two hours to put out the blaze, but it had destroyed the entire house and damaged a nearby pickup truck and motorcycle.

Police and firefighters then found the body hanged from the platform of a water tank about three metres from the house.

The hands of the man, who appeared to be in his 40s, were handcuffed behind his back and he had been hanged by a nylon rope.

A handwritten message was written on a side of the water tank in English, stating that a Thai woman and her family had “stolen everything” from the man, including his daughter. "Now, you have all exactly what you wanted," the note read.

Police are trying to identify the man by locating people who may have known him.
