In response to allegations of foul play in the death of TV actress Nida “Tangmo” Patcharaveerapong last week, police plan to use lie detectors when questioning people who were on a speedboat with her when she fell into the Chao Phraya River and drowned.

Pol Gen Suwat Jangyodsuk, chief of the national police, said on Monday that lie detector tests would facilitate the investigation.

The national police chief said “every answer from Nida’s friends should be backed up by reasons… The police will look into who was contacted after the incident … and if there was any physical assault. The police will clarify if there was any dispute or life insurance involved.”

In an interview with the Bangkok Post, Nida’s mother Mrs.Panida Siriyutthayothin said she didn’t believe her daughter’s death was an accident and suspected foul play.

As part of the investigation into the death of the 37-year-old personality who fell from a speedboat into the Chao Phraya River in Nonthaburi last Thursday night, Pol Gen Suwat met with officials at the Cyber Crime Investigation Bureau on Monday.

Nonthaburi Police Chief Chaturon Aksornbundit said lie detectors would be used when questioning Tanupat “Por” Lerttaweewit, the owner of the speedboat, Phaiboon “Bert” Trikanjananun, Nita’s “Job” Kiratisoothisathorn, Tangmo’s manager Idsarin “Gatick” Juthasuksawat and Wisapat ”

In this way, the investigators hoped to get a better understanding of what happened, he said.

On Monday, the police chief in Nonthaburi presented his initial report to Pol Gen Suwat.

Mr. Tanupat, the speedboat owner, and Mr. Phaiboon, who was driving the boat when Nida fell to her death, have already been charged.
