The body of a Swiss man was discovered lying dead on a bed in a room 105, on the first floor of Moona Hotel. He was found at dusk in the evening of the 30th of May. This hotel is located on Street 1986, Sen Sok
According to the written essentials (check in details) of the above man, the dead man is called ZurcherDaviel Georg (sic.), 46 years old, Swiss, who arrived in Cambodia as a tourist.
The body of victim was discovered face up on a bed in room 205 which he was staying in, also on the body was a small thin karma tightened around his neck, as for his legs, both were tied together with a cord.

Colonel Mak Hong, a police inspector at Sen Sok police inspectorate, said that this case, according to the deductions of the skilled police who had inspected the body, was death by hanging of the neck killed by himself (he committed suicide) and he had over injected an injectable drug into his veins សពបានស្លាប់ដោយចងក សម្លាប់ខ្លួនឯង (ធ្វើអត្ថឃាត) និងបានប្រីប្រាស់ថ្នាំញៀនប្រភេទចាក់បញ្ចូលក្នុងសរសៃ ជ្រុលលើសកម្រិត . The police have taken a urine sample of the deceased to test to see what drug he had injected into his blood.
According to non-official conjecture and judging by the state of the body of the deceased it is more likely to be murder; that is the victim was killed and robbed and then a krama was tied around the neck of the victim to create a false trail for the police and lead them to infer that this was a case of suicide (killing himself) with the victim leaving a little bit of money in his pockets.
But what is most strongly puzzling is that if the victim killed himself, why is the body lying face up on the bed with a satisfied expression on his face and, furthermore, with his legs tied together?
