A small charcoal cooker was found in the foot well of the driver’s seat that had recently been burning in the vehicle.
Police believed that she had died at least 24 hours before her body had been discovered.
Her relatives told The Pattaya News that they had tried to wake her up inside the car but failed so they broke the car’s glass before moving her body out of the vehicle.
