Pol Gen Suwat said police expect to learn more in a couple of days when the results of forensic examination come out, reports the Bangkok Post.

He said he has instructed investigators to examine witnesses’ statements and related evidence such as phone records and driving speed and the speedboat’s GPS data.

The body of the 37-year-old actress was recovered on Feb 26 almost two days after she fell into the Chao Phraya River while on a speedboat with five others.

Tanupat “Por” Lerttaweewit and Phaiboon “Robert” Trikanjananun, were charged with operating an unlicensed vessel and negligence leading to death after the incident. The other three on board were Idsarin “Gatick” Juthasuksawat, Tangmo’s manager; Wisapat “Sand” Manomairat and Nitas “Job” Kiratisoothisathorn.

It was re- ported that the five were summonsed for questioning yesterday (Mar 6). They have been fiercely criticised by netizens over the incident with Tangmo’s mother also wading into the debate in a row over compensation for her daughter’s death.

At least 29 witnesses have now been questioned in the probe into the actress’ death.

Pol Lt Gen Jirapat Phumijit, commissioner of Provincial Police Region 1, said yesterday police are still collecting evidence and the investigation will take some time. He said the investigation is being handled in a straightforward manner without interference, saying the national police chief also supervises the probe.

Divers from the marine police division yesterday recovered two objects from the Chao Phraya River near Phibul Songkhram pier and handed them over to forensic examination. It was believed that police were looking for objects that the witnesses claimed to have tossed into the river after Nida fell off the speedboat.

Meanwhile, memorial services for the actress will be held at Liberty Church Bangkok in Saphan Sung district from March 11-13 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Mama won't be happy- blows all her conspiracy theories out the window. Pimping her daughter's death for profit, hopefully not see a satang now. What a pity. National Police Chief involved over an 'accidental' death- veeeeeeeeeey interesting as Arte Johnson would have said.

Duh!! Why would it be anything else but an accident. Drunk people on boats is always a bad idea.
