Thomas Ricoletti was the husband of Emelia Ricoletti.
In December 1984 after his wife Emelia appeared to commit suicide, Thomas visited an opium den in Limehouse, London. A woman in a wedding dress appeared before him and revealed herself to be Emelia. After singing their wedding song to him, she shot him dead and vanished into the night.
The mysterious nature of Thomas Ricoletti's murder caused Inspector Lestrade to bring the case before the consulting detective Sherlock Holmes.
