Now it is being reported that the wife said he went to get passport pages and they (US Embassy) kept his passport? But US Embassy denies involvement in any investigation about criminal activity? Wife says she could not reach him by phone so she does internet search? Oh, and someone with same name as wife signs up with CEO forum, which, coincidentally, is following the story closely? It would be a convenient way to see what people are saying about it, WHO THEY Are suspecting. Just saying.
Yes, the story is getting stranger by the day.

I suppose she could have signed up here just to follow the story, but it definitely raises a red flag. She hasn't posted anything from the account, so not sure why signed up.

Hmmm.. So many unanswered questions in this case.

Wow, drinking and driving charges, along with manufacturing meth.

This William Bryan Glenn has a very interesting history indeed.

It sounds more certain that his teaching qualifications and teaching history in Mississippi are totally bogus.

I really want to know what happened at the Embassy. Did they say, "Sorry, we won't give you your passport back because you're wanted on charges back in Mississippi. We also won't be sending you back to Mississippi to face the charges. We've just been looking for you to take away you're passport, that's all. OK, you're free to go. Be careful out there."





A background check on a Mississippi native found slain in a dump in Cambodia shows an open bench warrant from 2002 when he missed a court date for manufacturing methamphetamine and third-offense DUI.

International media reported that a child found the bruised body of William Bryan Glenn, 43, in a garbage dump on Wednesday. He was allegedly wrapped in a yellow curtain held together with duct tape.

Villagers reported seeing a motorcycle taxi drive down the dirt road at 3 a.m. on Wednesday and then stop at the site just hours before the body was found.

Glenn's passport was confiscated by the U.S. Embassy before his death, a police official said yesterday.

"The ... team from the U.S. Embassy here told us they had been looking for this guy because he was involved in a drug case and they wanted to send him back to the US," said Choun Narin, deputy Phnom Penh municipal police chief in charge of penal crime, calling him "a wanted criminal."

Glenn, who is a Columbus and Lowndes County native, had a charge of manufacturing methamphetamines and third offense DUI outstanding with the Lowndes County Sheriff's Department from 2001. According to the Lowndes County Circuit Clerk's office, he was arraigned in Lowndes County Circuit Court in November 2001, and when he did not show up for trial in February 2002, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.

He was never convicted on the charges, because he never went to court on them.

The Columbus Police Department has not yet returned requests for further information.

U.S. Embassy spokesman John Simmons told the media that the U.S. Embassy was not involved in the investigation, but Narin said the embassy is involved.

"Inquiries may be addressed to the Cambodian police authorities who are handling the investigation," Simmons wrote in an email, adding that the embassy was not involved in the case. He went on to say that the embassy often collects personal effects to send back to a victim's family.

A State Department official told the Clarion-Ledger by email that the State Department offers condolences to Glenn's family and is in contact with them, providing all appropriate consular assistance.

"Out of respect for the privacy of those affected, we decline further comment," the email read.

Mok Chito, director of the central justice police department at the Ministry of Interior, said municipal police were handling the case "directly", so he was not aware of how far the investigation had progressed.

A post by Glenn on Expat-blog.com saids he is a graduate of the University of Mississippi and then taught in Mississippi for six years, but that's where things get murky.

The Mississippi Department of Education does not have record of a William Glenn, a Bryan Glenn, or a Will Glen.

The Lowndes County School District also does not have anyone in their records with the last name Glenn.

The Columbus Municipal School District was not able to access its records until next week, a receptionist said.

The University of Mississippi Registrar's Office and Alumni Association both have no record of Glenn at Ole Miss.

Heng Sokuthy, manager of the Golden Gate American School, where Glenn taught briefly, said he had mentioned living in Bangkok.

Oops, I stand corrected! !

William Bryan Glenn IS a certified teacher.

But NOT in Mississippi. In Alabama.

The Alabama State Department of Education does list a William Bryan Glenn.

Since this murder of William Bryan Glenn case has become a big international case, I've moved it to the General Chatter section.

This is one of the most interesting cases for a long time. The more that comes out the weirder it gets, the latest stuff gets you thinking about a potential drug side to all of this again. I did think originally this had to be why the US authorities had him on their radar, a minor misdemeanour wouldn't merit their attention.

Also, I'm not sure if he had taught in either Mississippi or Alabama, but it looks like William Bryan Glenn was teaching at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico, as a Director of Community Education.

New Mexico State University
Director Community Education
3400 South Espina Street Community Education
Las Cruces, NM 88003-8001
USA

And he has 11 mailing addresses across Alabama and Mississippi.

And this might be him. Couldn't confirm the birth date, but both were born in 1970.
