  • Thawee Nanra, 75, a self-proclaimed holy man whose followers allegedly worship corpses and believe his bodily fluids could cure diseases, was arrested at a thatched house in the jungle of Chaiyaphum province in northeastern Thailand
  • Police said they found 11 corpses, which are believed to be the bodies of some of Thawee’s followers.
  • Authorities said that Thawee managed the group for more than four years without anyone finding out because the location of his house was so remote.
  • Their existence was only discovered after the daughter of one of Thawee’s followers told a social media celebrity known for exposing unethical religious figures.
  • Thawee was charged with encroaching on a forest area and holding illegal gatherings. He was denied bail on Monday.
