Thai news media reported that a foreign tourist out sunbathing on popular Lamai beach in Samui found the corpse of a woman buried in the sand.
And it looks like murder.
The tourist noticed a bad smell coming from the sand and on further inspection saw some clothing sticking out.
A little dig revealed the grisly secret - the body of a woman as yet unidentified.
Police said it had been there for about three days and was bloated and decomposing. They could not say yet whether it was a foreigner or a Thai woman.
Results of an autopsy are as yet unavailable after the find yesterday, reported Daily News.
But police are saying that it looks like a murder enquiry.
