Fisherman’s horror as fish was actually rotting human corpse of missing student

A bloke got the shock of his life when he thought he'd captured a huge fish while angling in a local river.

But the man who was fishing in the Nan River in Phitsanulok, Thailand, actually hooked the corpse of a 21-year-old woman who had been missing for days.

According to local Thai news site Thaiger, Mueang Phitsanulok Police officers were called to the grim site at around 10.30am yesterday (January 2).

Medical experts and rescue workers attended, but the body was found dead, lying face down.

She was wearing a black T-shirt and jeans at the time, with the fishing hook allegedly caught in her clothing and was later identified as a 21-year-old student from Pibulsongkram Rajabhat University called Sunit.

The 58-year-old who found the body was named only as Naret, and was “shocked” to find the body at the spot he regularly fishes at.

Thaiger also reports that one of the woman's friends claims that the now-deceased woman went for a drink in a local bar, and headed back to where they were staying in a “pickup truck”.

It has been claimed that she got out of the car – where she was with friends – and jumped off the bridge over the river mid-journey.

They also state that her friends tried to go down the river to find her, but failed to do so, and called on rescue services to help.

It is also being reported that the woman's family will perform religious burial rites once an autopsy has been carried out, but that they are “not” suspecting any suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.

No official comment has been released by local police to confirm the claims, although her death has been ruled as suicide, but the Daily Star has reached out to them for a comment.
