A FRIEND OF actress Pataratida Patcharawirapong, or Tangmo Nida, who drowned in Chao Phraya river during a speedboat trip last February, gave a large sum of money from the sale of her clothes to her mother today (Jan. 14), Amarin TV said.
Ms. Anna Warinthorn, a close friend of the late actress, posted photos and the following message online:
“Gave some money from the sale of Tangmo Nida’s clothes to provincial children who do not have school uniforms with the rest being handed over to her mother (Mrs. Panida Siriyuttayothin).
“Found a picture of Tangmo when she was young. Her mother has not yet sold her house, still can’t make up her mind whether to keep it or not as she misses her daughter.”
In September last year the late actress’ mother had withdrawn as joint plaintiff in both civil and criminal cases against six suspects in her death in return for 400,000 baht in cash plus two cashier’s cheques totaling 1.6 million baht and a contract to pay her a salary of 30,000 baht a month for 20 years as compensation.
The six suspects are Mr. Tanupat Lerttaweewit, or Hi So Por, the speedboat owner; Mr. Paiboon Srikanchananan, or Robert or Bird, the amateur skipper; Ms. Wisapat Manomairat, or Sand; Ms. Idsarin Juthasuksawat, or Gatick, her manager; Mr. Nithat Keeratisuthisathorn, or Job; and Mr. M. Phim Thamtheerasri, their consultant,
