The body of a 42-year-old Russian man with multiple stab wounds has been found in Phuket in a private house used for growing cannabis.

Phuket police have found the body of 42-year-old Artur Mkhitaryan in a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds to his body and neck area. Police believe the man had been dead for at least 12 hours by the time of the discovery, the Bangkok Post reported.

The Russian girlfriend of the deceased said Arthur had disappeared in a hire car two days earlier. The girlfriend then contacted the car hire company and asked the staff to trace the vehicle.

The white Honda City car was found in Chalong in front of a house on a hill. The two-storey house turned out to be locked from inside. Police opened the doors to the house and found the body of a man. The body showed signs of a struggle and multiple stab wounds. Police also found a key to a car parked next to the house.

Police inspect the house where the body of a Russian man was found.

Artur Mkhitaryan arrived in Thailand on 28 January on a 90-day visa-free stamp. His permitted stay was due to expire on 26 April.

According to detectives investigating the murder, the Thai woman rented a house to her foreign boyfriend. The house was originally the office of a travel company, but the house was later turned into a cannabis farm. Neighbours said that foreigners often visited the place to buy and consume marijuana.

Police are establishing the circle of suspects involved in the murder. A foreigner who arrived in the country on 12 January and left on Tuesday evening is suspected of committing the crime. The investigation is ongoing.
