The mother of TV Program Star Nida “Tangmo” Patcharaveerapong has requested a new autopsy on her daughter her lawyer said yesterday.
The mother wants the former chief of the Central Institute of Forensic Science Dr. Khunying Porntip Rojanasunan to perform a full autopsy on the late actress.
Attorney Krissana Sriboonpimsuay, who represents Ms. Panida Sirayootyotin, Nida’s mother, said there were many unusual aspects to the case.
Mr. Krissana was speaking at the main city police station in Nonthaburi province on Monday.
He told Thai media that he was re-examining the forensic findings of the case because “there are many questions and doubts”. He did not elaborate.
Doubts Over TV Stars Death
During the meeting, the lawyer said he would attempt to meet with Khunying Porntip, who is now a senator. He explained that his client requested her because she had confidence in her abilities.
He said his client and Nida’s elder brother both had many doubts about the case.
During a news conference at the parliament on Monday, Dr. Khunying Porntip said she was willing to offer advice on the autopsy. However, she was not able to do it herself.
The Provincial Police Region 1 commissioner, Pol Lt Gen Jirapat Phumijit, said on Monday that the results of the autopsy are being processed as quickly as possible. A decision about the autopsy should be left to the interrogators in the case.
In addition, the commissioner stated that 65 people had already been interviewed as witnesses.
While in a speedboat with five other people, TV program star Nida, 37, fell into the Chao Phraya River in Nonthaburi around 10:40 pm on Feb 24. About 1 pm on February 26, her body was discovered.
As part of efforts to avoid confusion, the Royal Thai Police announced on Monday that starting on Tuesday, a deputy spokesman for Provincial Police Region 1 will give a daily briefing on the case at the regional headquarters.
The owner of the speedboat, Tanupat “Por” Lerttaweewit, and the driver, Phaiboon “Robert” Trikanjananun, were accused and charged with operating an unlicensed vessel and negligence leading to death.
