Thai police investigating a model’s unexplained death were hunting for more suspects in a case that has captivated the country and sparked rare outrage over the treatment of women in a poorly understood sector of the entertainment industry. The body of model-for-hire Thitima Noraphanpiphat was found in the lobby of a Bangkok apartment block on September 17, hours after she attended a party where she was paid to serve drinks. Police are working to press charges against anyone tied to the “scandal” that led to the 25-year-old’s death, spokesman Krissana Pattanacharoen told AFP late Saturday. The case has made front-page news in Thailand and fuelled speculation on social media over what happened to Thitima, who has nearly 85,000 followers on Instagram where many have posted “RIP” on her photos.—AFP
