PHUKET City police say they have apprehended an American man who answers the description of the expat wanted over the killing of Phuket bar hostess Wanpen Pianchai, who was stabbed and dumped naked in a suitcase by a Phuket roadside last month.

The man was apprehended about 6pm yesterday at his home in Thantong Village, Chalong, in southern Phuket.

Police say his name is Donal Fanelli, 36, and that he has confessed to the killing.

The brutal murder of the hostess from Sweethearts Bar in Kata-Karon sent a wave of fear through sex workers at more than 700 bars on Phuket.
