A second corpse in a month has been found on a Koh Samui beach.
This time it was the body of a newborn infant that was revealed when waves washed away the sand on a beach in Maenam district just off the ring road at Ban Bang Por.
The boy had been dead about three or four days and was wrapped in a short sleeved sports shirt.
Suphit Chirpaka of Koh Samui police said it was likely that the boy was born to teens who were not ready to have a child.
It was not possible to say whether the child had died in the womb or was killed or died after birth.
The umbilical cord was still attached.
Police are investigating.
