Sanook said that he became a building contractor but was still loaning money to clients. 

They said he represented a “catch” for women but that the Italian victim was considered desirable because of his famous surname, by chance that of a sports’ car manufacturer. INN named his as Mario Ferrari.

Many pictures were taken as the suspect was taken on a reenactment of the crime yesterday by a police team led by deputy chief of the Khon Kaen police, Pol Col Sutthipong Pekthong, said Sanook.
