Beaten and hit on the head. This is a troubling, grisly discovery. Looks like a gang/mafia-like killing :\
In any case, thoughts go to his family, if any.

General, the article doesn't give any more details about him. It will be updated as more info are released.

Wow this is pretty unusual. Definately looks like gang-related but it might just be "normal" thieves/robbers trying to cover up their tracks. I doubt someone he didn't know would go to such lengths...

However, it sounds like he might be a certified teacher from the States, not a TEFLer.

Hello, my name's William Glenn and I'm a teacher from the U.S.A. I've taught English at every level from Kindergarten to grade 12 and Mathematics and Science in all primary grades. I'm currently living in Phnom Penn and I'm looking for a teaching position, starting as soon as possible. I have a degree in Education and I've spent the last 10 years teaching in Thailand. I'm a very compassionate, fun teacher that loves to watch his students learn and reach their full potential. If you would like to see my C.V. and all relevant documents you can email me at [email protected] or call me at 077602863 to set up an interview.

Kind regards, William Glenn

^ That was posted only 2 months ago. Appears he came over from Thailand.

Based on timeframe, it's possible he hadn't even started working in Cambodia as an English teacher yet.

And the Thai wife obviously had problems with him. Nasty business and a horrible way to go.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
