Police investigating the reported abduction of Australian Wayne Schneider in Thailand found a body in a shallow grave in Pattaya. Officers said the body had a broken neck and an injury above the left eyebrow. A search was launched on Tuesday after reports of Schneider's abduction from his luxurious villa home in the Jomtien area of Pattaya. The body was found early on Wednesday buried just a metre below ground in woodland. Vehicle tyre tracks were discovered leading about 100 metres away from the spot. Local media reports say investigators believe five foreign men were involved in the case but that they've revealed nothing further. Police say their inquries are ongoing.
