The 25-year-old was taken into custody at a petrol station in Thon Buri district about 1am today (Sept 25) when he stopped to refuel his vehicle, in which his parents were also travelling.

Mr Radachech was the last person seen with Lunlabelle, in security camera footage, before her body was found on a sofa in the lobby of a condominium building where he lives, in the early hours of Sept 17.

He had earlier refused to open the door to police when they went to his room at the condo on Ratchadaphisek-Tha Phra Rd to show him a warrant for his arrest.

He was taken to Metropolitan Police Division 8 and then to Bukkhalo Police Station for interrogation that continued well into this morning. He was then charged with detaining Lunlabelle in a way that caused her death, molestation and committing an indecent act.

Metropolitan Police Chief Pol Lt Gen Suthipong Wongpin said at the Bukkhalo Police Station that Rachadech admitted to being the man seen in the surveillance camera footage carrying the unconscious Thitima, 25, into the condominium in Thon Buri on the evening of Sept 16, and later carrying her to a sofa in the lobby in the early hours of the next morning.

She was found dead on the sofa by a security guard.

However, he denied all the charges and insisted he did not know the woman would die, believing that she was only drunk and unconscious, Gen Suthipong said.

The Bangkok police chief said investigators would look into whether any other person at the party-house in Bang Bua Thong District of Nonthaburi where Thitima was hired to serve drinks should also be charged.

According to police, an autopsy found that Thitima died of extreme alcoholic intoxication, with a blood alcohol concentration of 418 milligrammes per 100 millilitres – a level that causes unconsciousness and death.

The coroner's estimation of time of death of this 'Pretty' will  prove or the arrested man carrying the 'Pretty' alive or dead to the sofa in the lobby.  Anyway, carrying her there and leaving without any care or call for medical care is showing how characterless he is. What a total coward.
