Body Of Canadian Killed In Thailand Back In Calgary

Ernie Del Pinto sat quietly Saturday, his head bowed as he lovingly ran his fingers over a picture of his son Leo, who was shot and killed in an altercation with a police officer in Thailand earlier this month.

As he looked down, he wiped away the occasional tear. His chair was next to a shrine set up in his home for his son in a quiet neighbourhood in northwest Calgary.

A table was overflowing with dozens of flowers from friends, family and well-wishers as several pictures of his son’s smiling face looked out. Leo John Del Pinto’s backpack, emblazoned with two large Canadian flags, was the latest addition, having been returned home Saturday along with his body.

“It was shock and now it moves to the reality now that his remains are here,” said Del Pinto’s brother-in-law, Ross Fortune.

“I don’t think anything is going to get better for him for a long time,” he said nodding toward his father-in-law. “Today’s the worst I’ve seen him and it’s not even lunch yet. There’s a hole in his heart and it won’t be filled, ever.”

Del Pinto’s family believes he was shot at point-blank range while defending his friend Carly Reisig of Chilliwack, B.C., after a man punched her in the head in the northern Thai town of Pai.

A Thai police officer has been charged with premeditated murder in the shooting death of Del Pinto, who was 24, and with “intent to kill” in the wounding of Reisig.

But the officer was released on bail less than a day after Del Pinto’s death.

Reisig, who also shot in the chest during the altercation and is recovering in a Thai hospital, has said she is worried about her safety and that of her Thai boyfriend, who also witnessed the shootings.
