UPDATE 3 November:
Diners at a vegetarian restaurant in Lat Krabang, Bangkok were shocked when they supposedly discovered minced meat in their noodles
It was soon found that the 'extra ingredient' in the meal was actually minced human flesh
Further inspections revealed a disfigured body stuffed in a septic tank located in the restaurant's backyard
The victim has been identified as 61-year-old Prasit Inpathom, who was a frequent patron of the restaurant.
Oriental Daily reported that the body was so heavily decomposed that family members could only identify the victim by his tattoo on the left shoulder and arm. The last time they had seen him was on 21 October.
According to the victim's younger brother, the victim had gone to the restaurant to look for a job and then went out to "yumcha" with the owner of the restaurant. He couldn't be contacted after that.
Authorities believe that a fight had occurred between the restaurant owner and the victim
An autopsy revealed multiple knife stab wounds and bruises on the victim's body; five on the shoulder and one on the right thigh.
The owner then attempted to get rid of the evidence by chopping up the victim and serving it to customers, reported Oriental Daily.
When the report was made, the owner fled. He has yet to be found.
Police have yet to determine how many diners may have consumed the minced human meat or the motive for the murder.
