BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's prime minister has ordered a second autopsy be conducted after the death of a key witness in a deadly hit-and-run case linked to the heir to the Red Bull energy drink fortune, amid public anger that the charges were dropped.

Jaruchart Mardthong, 40, died in what police said looked like a motorcycle accident on Thursday, amid public suspicion about the exact cause of his death.

Results of an initial autopsy have not yet been released. Local media said his family had planned to cremate the body on Sunday.

He was a key witness in the police investigation into Vorayuth "Boss" Yoovidhya, who was accused of killing a police officer in 2012, according to deputy government spokeswoman Traisulee Traisoranakul.

Police said last week that all charges against Vorayuth had been dropped, stirring public anger about the country's entrenched culture of impunity for the rich and well-connected.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha wants to ensure justice and clear public suspicion over the case, Traisulee said in a statement on Sunday.

"The prime minister reiterates that the government will help create justice in the case. Any wrongdoers will be punished. This case will not be unresolved in the public's mind," she said.

Police said Jaruchart had died at hospital after crashing with another motorcycle driver, who was also injured but had left hospital.

Prayuth previously said a committee had been formed to look at what led to the case being dropped but it would not interfere in the work of the attorney-general, police and court. The committee has 30 days to complete its task.

Vorayuth had missed eight summonses to appear in court. He was accused of crashing his black Ferrari into policeman Wichien Klanprasert and dragging his body for dozens of metres before fleeing the scene. He was 27 at the time.

Authorities issued a warrant for his arrest five years after the incident and Vorayuth later left the country. His current whereabouts are unknown.

Police have said the old case against Vorayuth had officially ended and could only be relaunched if relatives of the victim filed the case directly to a court, or if there were new witnesses or evidence.

Casey Costelloe Stuns In A Red String Bikini While Relaxing On The Beach: Needed A Good Dose Of Vitamin D

Casey Costelloe steamed up her Instagram page this week with a stunning new photo that has proved hard to ignore.

The image was taken at Hervey Bay in Queensland, Australia, per the geotag, where Casey ventured to for a “last minute getaway” before the city’s borders are shut down again due to the coronavirus pandemic. She was seen laying across the sand on top of a colorful towel in the shot, angling her body toward the camera while shooting it a sultry stare. The golden sun spilled down on her, providing her a “good dose of vitamin D” and illuminating her phenomenal figure.

Of course, a day on the beach called for the perfect swimwear and Casey’s certainly did not disappoint. The Aussie model looked absolutely incredible in a scanty string bikini that left very little to the imagination, adding some serious heat to her page.

Casey sizzled in her itty-bitty red two-piece that popped against her deep, allover tan. The swimwear included a halter-style top with thin straps and a plunging neckline that left her toned arms, shoulders, and decolletage completely exposed. Its triangle cups were hardly enough to contain the beauty’s voluptuous chest, exposing an eyeful of her ample cleavage and underboob in a seductive manner.

The model’s curvaceous lower half was also well on display thanks to the barely there nature of her bikini bottoms. The garment boasted a daringly high-cut design that allowed Casey to show off her curvy hips and sculpted thighs, while its waistband was positioned in the perfect spot to accentuate her trim waist. Its stringy straps were tied in dainty bows on either side of her hips, drawing attention to her flat midsection and abs.

Casey accessorized her beach day ensemble with a thin chain necklace and dangling earrings. She also wore a straw hat on top her of blond locks, which were almost completely hidden by its wide, floppy brim.

Fans were thrilled by the latest look at Casey’s physique, awarding the upload over 5,000 likes within less than a day’s time. Over 170 users took their love a step further and left compliments in the comments section.

“Love the red suit,” one person wrote.

“Wow very gorgeous and beautiful,” praised another admirer.

“Now I wish I was in Australia,” a third follower remarked.

“You make any beach look good,” added a fourth fan.

Casey has hardly been shy about showing some skin on her Instagram page lately. Earlier this week, she sent temperatures soaring again when she flaunted her derriere in a cheeky leopard-print bikini. That look proved to be another major hit, amassing nearly 8,000 likes since going live.
