A 30-year-old model died after plunging from a three-storey building in Wang Thong Lang area in Bangkok on Saturday night, police said.
Chokchai police identified her as Kanyakorn Supakarnkacharoen, also known as Kay Lederer, a former beauty queen and model.
Kanyakorn was reportedly admitted to Ladprao General Hospital in Wang Thong Lang district at 9.32pm on Saturday night after falling from the third floor of a building in Soi Ruamnamjai off Pradit Manutham road. The building houses a beauty clinic reportedly run by her.
She suffered severe head injuries and was pronounced dead at 10.30pm.
Police examining her room on the third floor of the building found a bottle of herbicide in the toilet. It was thought she might have taken the herbicide before jumping, committing suicide because of personal problems.
Kanyakorn, better known as Kay Lederer, won a number of titles in beauty pageants including Next Top Model 2012 (2nd runner-up), an award in Miss Thailand World 2012, and Miss Supercar 2013 (winner). She also appeared in music videos and men's magazines.
Apart from being a career model, Kanyakorn also ran a beauty business under the name of Lederer (Thailand) Company Limited.
Police were investigating the death.
