Memorial service for Calgarian killed in Thailand
A candle light vigil was held Thursday night for a Calgarian killed in Thailand two years ago.
On January 6th, 2008 Leo Del Pinto was shot dead while on a trip to Thailand.
The person who allegedly pulled the trigger is a Thai police officer stationed in the town of Pai.
He has been arrested and charged with first degree murder, but is out on bail and still working as a police officer while awaiting trial.
Del Pinto's father is frustrated at the pace of the Thai court proceedings.
About 100 people attended a memorial for Del Pinto Thursday night.
Ernie Del Pinto is hoping a large turnout at the memorial will keep pressure from the Canadian government on the Thai authorities.
