'Deadly ghost' kills four men in Thailand

Public health officials have been sent to investigate the mysterious deaths of four men in Kalasin province.
According to reports, the four men, who had been residents of Nong Kung Si district, were killed by what is known locally as a 'porb ghost' which is said to kill its victims by eating their internal organs.

Local tradition states that these female spirits haunt their victims relentlessly while gradually feasting upon their organs until their injuries are too great and they die.

The villagers reportedly took matters in to their own hands by hiring a 'hermit' to come and perform a special ritual designed to scare the troublesome spirit away from the area.

Now Dr Pairat Songkhram, a preventative medicine specialist who is the head of the health team visiting the region, has stated that an investigation in to the deaths is now ongoing.

The aim will be to rule out paranormal explanations in an effort to pacify the frightened villagers.

At present, all four of the deaths remain unexplained.

I ordered the Phi pob in a Thai restaurant once, guess this explains the upset stomach the following morning! Seriously though, one would of thought this theory easy to disprove. An autopsy should discover partially eaten organs if it's an organ eating ghost. They can't even claim sacred rights for some of the bodies as they are animals. †

The aim will be to rule out paranormal explanations in an effort to pacify the frightened villagers. ... so they think that saying "hey there's a flesh eating virus going around that eat's your internal organs, so i'f you have a stomachache it probably means you're a dead man walking" †would be more comforting to tell the villagers than watch out for ghosts... OK... doesn't seem like something that would pacify people to me but OK...

Hmm, as above, surely an autopsy would show some form of parasite or disease/decomposition of organs?

Unless they canít afford a doctor or vet to run the tests. Maybe the ghostbusters were cheaper! †
