Thirty year old Yuthapong was found without his trousers on.

Bang Saphan police think he might have fallen asleep and been hit by ocean debris brought in on a big wave.

But the locals are all sure – he was enticed to the lonely spot by a ghost that resulted in his death…

"Fifty meters away was his lifeless body underneath a slab of concrete."

Wow, that must have been some wave!

"Police and foundation medics helped lift the concrete off the body that was dressed in a purple shirt but no trousers."

Never underestimate the power of strong waves and the indiscriminate way that they can disrobe a body. If it could move a slab of concrete, it could easily pull off pants or other articles of clothing in the strangest ways, as the 2004 Christmas Tsunami proved many times.

Hmmm…methinks more here than is apparent…

True, he might have gotten caught with his pants already down.

Which begs the question … with whom? And is there another body to be found?

Nonetheless I get the feeling that "ghost" is still a convenient (and often officia)l catch-all determination in some places, for anything odd or as yet uninvestigated/unexplained. Just like the djinn "police" used to do in some parts of the world, who would go from place to place arresting and punishing people they claimed were possessed.

Perhaps just another case of Arkancide. Did he know hillary?
