The woman has not been identified.
On March 4th, 2021, police in Udon Thani were notified that a man jogging in the Nong Sim Public Park in Udon Thani found the remains of an unidentified woman, aged about 50, wearing a pink t-shirt, brown pants, and blue-pink sneakers. She was found lying face down in the water. No identification was found on her.
Investigators said she died not more than 4 hours prior to the discovery of her remains.
The jogger who found the body, Mr. Supon, aged 52, said that he came to the park every day before work. On this morning he spotted something floating in the water. He called to others who were at the park to come take a look. He thought it was a mannequin or doll of some sort. But on closer inspection, it was clear that it was a human corpse.
The deceased was known to have exercise in the mornings and evenings nearly every day at the same park. Some witnesses said that they saw the deceased come for a jog at 5AM. But nobody knew who the woman was. They said that she would go down to the bank of the pond and wash her hands or look at the fish.
The report says that there was heavy rain the night before and that the woman may have fell into the pond and drowned when nobody was looking.
The corpse was taken to an Udon Thani hospital for an autopsy.

My take: She went down to the bank of the pond to look at the fish, fell in and drowned? Something fishy about this case. We’ll update if there are other reports that come in.
