    Former famous Thai actress found dead in Chonburi

    Meanwhile, a former famous Thai actress, who in recent years had fallen onto hard times, was found dead at a house in the Pattaya.


    Police were notified of the incident at 10:00 AM today, Thursday, July 23, at a house in the Surasak sub-district.


    When Police arrived at the house to find the body of Ms. Manusanan ‘Tai’ Pandee, 33.


    No sign of struggle was found on her body or in the house and she was lying in a sleeping area. She was found by the owner of the home. An 81 year old long-time family friend of Manusanan.


    Manusanan is originally from Chonburi. She was a famous Thai teenage actress and starred as a supporting actress in a variety of television shows. She was also popular in movie commercials and other media. Some of her better known movies were; Noodle Boxer and See How They Run.


    She also became a fairly prominent singer on the entertainment scene in Bangkok.


    Last year, however, Ms. Manusanan was found begging on the streets in Chonburi with her head shaved. A video, went viral of her living in poverty and struggling with various mental and physical issues.


    Tai Manusanan Pandee, 32, was once a household name but faded from the entertainment industry and became addicted to meth. Her downward spiral into prostitution and drug addiction worsened over the last decade. Leaving her fans mystified by her disappearance.


    She was discovered last year living in a shabby tent on a rubbish dump in Chonburi, Thailand.


    The former actress was almost unrecognizable with her skinny body and shaved head, hiding herself from visitors.


    She was seen retreating to her drug paraphernalia, surrounded by empty beer bottles and junk filling the tent where she lives.


    Tai’s mother, U-sa Chankad, said that her daughter was a good looking girl and had been asked to be in the several movies and music videos when she was younger.


    But after earning vast sums from TV shows, she was arrested twice for drug use and robberies. She lost everything and eventually became a beggar on the street.


    U-sa said: ”My daughter was once a star. Everybody wanted to know her. But it all went wrong. The party lifestyle ruined her. Now she has nothing.

    It really is sad. Apparently, she had no one in her life who could take control and get her the help she needed.

    Addiction is a serious problem everywhere in the world and we, humankind, do not know how to fix it. Recidivism is rampant and falling off the proverbial wagon is far too frequent an occurrence.

    AA and NA groups of non-practicing alcoholics and drug addicts have the greatest success ratio. But, the individual must desire to repair their problem.

    Twelve stepping with a sponsor is your greatest chance of success.

    Her family could have her committed for her mental illness, if they had the wits and resources.

    A sad story, and one being played out all over Thailand, albeit with less noteworthy figures.

    I have a fairly well known meth distributor within 20 meters of my house. They have protection, of course.

    What a tragedy. Meth is not a joke... as are any other addictions. RIP lovely girl.
