Despite the ongoing investigation into the suspicious death of Thai actress Nida “Tangmo” Patcharaveerapong, police stated that everything seems to be leading to an accident.
In a report released by Bangkok Post, national police chief Suwat Jangyodsuk stated that they will learn more about the actress’ death when the forensic examination result comes out in a couple of days.
However, based on the evidences and the questioning of 65 people as witnesses so far, it seems like her death looks more and more like an accident than foul play.
He also added that he has instructed investigators to examine witnesses’ statements and related evidence including phone records and the speedboat’s GPS data.
Tangmo was pronounced dead in late February after her body was found two days after she fell into the Chao Phraya River while on a speedboat with five others, including her manager Idsarin “Gatick” Juthasuksawa.
Two others – boat owner Tanupat “Por” Lerttaweewit and driver Phaiboon “Robert” Trikanjananun – were charged with operating an unlicensed vessel and negligence leading to death after the incident.
The tragedy sparked multiple wild theories about Tangmo’s death, with her mother Panida Siriyuthayothin deciding to forgive the speedboat owner and driver but expressing anger towards the three others, especially Tangmo’s manager for failing to contact her until three days after the tragedy.
