Police chief of Por Sen Chey district, Khim Sarann, said Mr Glenn had been dead for over 24 hours when discovered, further pointing to a planned attack.

...wrapped in a yellow curtain fastened with duct tape.

One witness who saw the body before police arrived said the wrists and ankles appeared to have been tied with shoe laces.

...Post reporters saw what appeared to be heavy bruising on the man’s chest and neck area.

its thinkable, that the body was tied with shoe laces/rice bag around feet because it had to be transported in the tuktuk.

at another place it was said, he was on watch (by the american authorities) because of an "ongoing criminal investigation"...
perhaps he was a potential witness or so...

also, nobody knows why he left thailand in the first place.
for a teacher it might be a much better place than cambodia.

he left thailand (when?), went to china and from there to cambodia.
just for the record - not back to thailand.
and also, he was looking to leave cambodia - going to china. perhaps because it was further away from thailand?

apparently (from another newspaper source) he left the tattoo guesthouse tuesday morning as usual, but wouldnt return in the evening.
