The Thai police investigating the inexplicable death of a model was looking for more suspects in a case that fascinated the country and aroused rare indignation at the treatment of women in a poorly understood entertainment industry.

The body of model-for-rental Thitima Noraphanpiphat was found in the lobby of an apartment building in Bangkok on September 17, hours after she attended a party where she was paid to serve drinks.

The police are working on charges against anyone bound by the & # 39; scandal & # 39; that led to the death of the 25-year-old, spokesperson Krissana Pattanacharoen told AFP at the end of Saturday.

The case has brought front-page news to Thailand and fueled speculation on social media about what happened to Thitima, who has nearly 85,000 followers on Instagram where many & # 39; RIP & # 39; have placed & # 39; s on her photo.

The so-called & # 39; beautiful & # 39; Industry in Thailand leases promotional models for clubs, product launches and car shows.

But critics say it exists in a legally gray area where women at VIP parties can be forced into drugs, alcohol and sex.

The models earn around $ 100 and more for evening work – a substantial amount for students.

The police have already charged seven people associated with the party after CCTV recordings went viral and the main suspect dragged the lifeless body of Thitima into an elevator before it was dumped on a couch in the lobby.

The investigation becomes wider because the authorities hope that the case will serve as a warning.

& # 39; We have opened the investigation to all these people who also became involved in this scandal, including the agency, the manager … and the customers who enjoyed the party, & # 39; said Krissana.

& # 39; It only shows that if you cross the border, this is what you will receive. & # 39;

He said the police had not released an official cause of death, but that there was a & # 39; very high alcohol consumption & # 39; was found in her body.

The man who is believed to be in the CCTV film also works in the entertainment industry and has been identified as model Rachadej Wongtabutr.

He was accused this week of illegal detention that led to death after allegedly taking Thitima from the party to his flat and leaving her on the lobby couch.

Authorities say he has denied misconduct.

The six others were released on bail following a separate complaint from another woman hired for the party who said she was blackout and woke up with her clothes off.
