Police are investigating a video captured on the mobile phone of Tangmo’s manager, Idsarin “Gatick” Juthasuksawat, after Thai netizens pointed out a mysterious male voice off-screen.
The video, which was obtained by Nation Thailand and has since gone viral online, shows the late Thai actress posing on the speedboat with a cup of wine and playing with her hair on the night of her drowning. In the background, an unidentified male voice can be heard off-screen shouting… “You bring your friend here! You bring your friend here!”
At an interview evening with reporters yesterday, Nonthaburi police say they are still investigation the case and haven’t yet come to any certain conclusions. Her five boating buddies remain witnesses, not suspects, as an autopsy report confirms Tanmgo drowned, though many key details remained unconfirmed, including what caused the wound on her leg, and what — or who — caused her to topple overboard.
Police have said they are also investigating conflicting claims made by witnesses about what happened on the boat that night. Specifically, only one witness said the boat “lurched” forward in the water, the Bangkok Post reported, casting doubts on what actually caused the TV actress to fall into the Chao Phraya River last Thursday.
Another witness had early claimed that Tangmo fell off the back of the boat while peeing — a claim that was reported widely in the media. It drew much disbelief from both police and netizen sleuths online, who have since been debunked the story as a lie, after police conducted a second round of interviews earlier this week and continue their 5 day reenactment of the events with witnesses.
During the reenactments, police reattached the speedboat’s propeller, which had earlier been removed for analysis. But the propeller accidentally fell off the boat and sank to the bottom of the river. Divers have since recovered it, allowing the reenactments to proceed.
