FL - Father, daughter found dead in Merritt Island home; investigation continuesFather, daughter found dead in Merritt Island home; investigation continues
Calling the deaths 'tragic,' Brevard County sheriff's investigators are trying to determine what happened that lead to the apparent suicide of a father and the death of his 13-year-old daughter sometime before their bodies were discovered in their Merritt Island home late Sunday.
"Obviously it's just a tragic event. We're still investigating it and we're trying to determine the question of why," said Lt. Dan Singleton of the Brevard County sheriff's office's Major Crimes Unit.
Investigators identified the father as 42-year-old Sittichai Boonkeian and the daughter named as Ananya Mungmart.
Boonkeian worked at a Thai restaurant in Rockledge. Ananya, who recently celebrated a birthday, was a student at Tropical Elementary School.
Authorities would not confirm how Boonkeian died but are awaiting results in the daughter's death. Authorities believe the father's death was a suicide but did not elaborate on how. The mother, who was not home, is in Thailand, authorities said.

Still no cause of death for 13 year old daughter. I assume they are waiting on toxicology. RIP."If you are lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it."
