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.
Very sinister goings on it seems. Reminds me in a way of the Parvati Valley in Northern India during a time of murders and missing persons over a ten/fifteen year period. Rumors would abound of drug cartels, a crazy murderer living in the valley, bandits and the like with no-one being arrested. Central America seems to be experiencing a spate of western murders recently (mostly young women) as well. I guess there are always going to be dark spots for travellers/expats who live in regions of relative poverty.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

His was an amazing story, he wiped out quite a view backpackers at his guesthouse in Bangkok by slow poisoning and if I remember correctly a couple were dumped in Pattaya and due to non-identification were buried by the authorities before proper autopsies were performed.
That's what was concerning when that first 50+ US lady was found on Koh Rong, natural causes assumed and then at insistence proper autopsy concluded murder.
Is it about 4 recent strange deaths now ?
Yes sir, I can boogie, I can boogie, boogie, boogie all night long.
She has reportedly been found. I can only assume what is a friend just updated their "Looking For" post on the facebook groups. I tried to find the Facebook link but I couldn't seem to locate the thread again.
Likely true, I am glad another young person didn't fall victim to El Diablo Rong
