The couple – married only last September – shared the house with Kusama’s younger sister Sukanya and her husband Mitr. 

Sukanya said that at on Saturday evening she had seen Brisioli use a downstairs toilet – he had some bloodstains on him. 

By 8pm everything in the bedroom was unusually quiet and finding the door locked Sukanya and Mitr decided to use the spare key to open it. It was bolted from the inside and the occupants did not respond to calls. 

The door was kicked in. Sukanya was wrapped in a blanket with only her face showing. The Italian husband had his wrists slashed. They were dead side by side. 

There was no sign of a struggle or things out of place. 

Sukanya said that the couple planned to travel to Italy. She told Sanook that the Italian’s family were meant to have sent air tickets to them but when this didn’t happen the couple got stressed. 

They were due to go and live in Italy but were stuck in Thailand.

She felt this may have led to the tragedy. 

Bang Yai police said further investigations were ongoing but it looked like murder suicide.
