American English Teacher William Glenn Murdered in Cambodia

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

but hard to sort in (assuming a planned gang murder) are

- the $400 found at the body (if this info is correct)
- leaving his personal documents (not many people could have identified him)
- disposal with a tuktuk (accompanied by a motorbike)
- using a curtain/shoe laces (not very professionally prepared)
- the site where the body was found (it was noticed by the whole village apparently)
- suffocation (but perhaps this was because of the heavy beatings)

also... shoe laces are not the most popular thing here...?
before grabbing the curtain, one might think of a bedsheet...?

I see that a poster with the username Nittaya joined the forum on Thursday.
Never trust a man who when left alone with a tea cosey, doesn't try it on.

WoW. Very nice catch. I've just spent some time looking into it.

However, because of our commitment to protect all of our members' privacy, we will not be making any revealing comments on the registration in question.

Very keen observation though. :bow:

Is it just me or does that sound a bit odd?
You can't contact someone so you search the internet (to see if their name comes up).
