    Italian giovanni montesanti shoots and kills himself at thonglor condo

    Italian giovanni montesanti shoots and kills himself at thonglor condo


    Dear K. Ann - sorry I shot myself yesterday" - Italian's last note in apparent Bangkok Thong Lor suicide




    A 51 year old Italian man apparently shot himself dead in a top end Bangkok condo on Sunday night.

    He left a suicide note that appeared to be to a Thai woman.

    The maid found the body of Giovanni Battista Montesanti when she came to do the cleaning on Monday morning at room 198/67 on the 17th floor of a 36 story building between Sois 4 and 6 on Thong Lor, Sukhumvit 55.

    Thong Lor cops were soon on the scene and found the victim in bed with his face covered by a pillow and cloth and a revolver still in his right hand. The gun was resting by the left armpit.

    He was dressed all in black.

    On the bedside table was the TV remote, a bottle of water, a phone, the gun's case and a note.

    The note said in English: "Dear K. Ann, I am very sorry. I shot (myself) in my bedroom yesterday. I do not know if I am dead or not. I hope yes. Please call my best friend Silvio."

    Contact details of the friend followed with comments that his friend would sort out the finances.

    Police put it down to stress and sent the body for autopsy and attempted to contact the relatives, reported Manager.

    RIP another lonely death in a foreign land, very distressing for staff and family back in Italy.

    Even stranger not sure if dead ?

    The formation of the letter Y is very distinctive so could be easily matched.

    As English not first language of any involved doubt CSI TD will reveal more, like so many things in LOS wierd.

    Who knows the depression,lovers tiff, business "difficulties" perhaps Silvio knows Luigio .

    Perhaps he failed to deliver, I'm sure Bangkok's finest have it all covered.

    Presumably he didn't shoot himself in the head. But how? In his chest? Under his armpit?

    I shot myself yesterday and don't know if I'm dead or not.

    One can only hope something has been lost in translation.

    I suspect foul play and appearing suspiciously planned by others.
    Was he a well-to-do fella?

    Something smells fishy..... A background story might come handy.

    The handwriting is not thai.... Thai strokes are mostly down to up....

    After a well-written letter, what's with the poor grammatical ending to the letter?




    PS: there are letter for some people.
    Let K. Silvio to manage all the notification and communication.

    If one takes into consideration the fact that he's probably thinking in Italian, translating it into English and then writing it down it actually makes a lot more sense.

    The sentence "I don't know if I am dead or not" could easily be an incorrect translation of "I don't know if i'll die or not". Dead = morto, to die = morire.
    Hey JJ,

    Don't go to sleep,

    Time is tickin.

    Love it when ya stalk me ya Shit stain.

    The Italian for "notification and communication" is "notifica e comunicazione"

    If he was found today and shot himself yesterday then it would be correct. He wrote it for the person who found him.

    Nothing matters now for poor Giovanni. I always seem to find it more tragic when some poor sod feels he has so little to live for he ends it all, alone in some foreign country. R.I.P. you poor bastard Giovanni.

    So, why did he execute him?
