Akoo Ibiza Yes I heard of 2 now also and that they have been on a party at Tiki last night taking some bad mdma and drink a lot and maybe more people will die who have been there doing and taking the same. The one at Nolas bar felt asleep on the bar and was dead. So, everyone who has been on the party at Tiki and took some of this drug should go to the hospital to prevent more people die.

Ecran Kampot Jason, I am sure that friends and families involved in this tragedy are aware of who died. Maybe let's avoid shouting out names and assumptions in order not to worry anybody unnecessarily.

Akoo Ibiza Who knows? There are so many chemical, sociological and educational factors at play. The simple way to avoid overdosing on drugs is obviously to not take them. But since we don’t live in a fairytale world of pixies and unicorns, many will choose to take them despite the dangers.

As usual rumours abound. So all that follows is heresay picked up on the internet.
AFAIK, one person supposedly died here, no name for the moment:

But another person also died, and they had both reportedly been partying here at Tiki Guesthouse:

Drugs have been mentioned.

heartfelt sympathy for the families
i would also like to remind forum members that disrespect for the victims is going to earn you a ban with no warning.
these dead guys have families who will likely come here to get information about what happened/
not everyone who dabbles casually in drugs on holiday is a junky.
so show some fucking respect and pray your family escapes such a horrible thing.

deleted from the notoriously censoring kampot fb group now.
special snowflake town where no drug deaths, murder, rape, or robbery are EVER found.
not more than once a month anyway
and the townies hush it all up as quick as they can

It appears that the other man has been identified as JAMES EDWARD, 33 yo, who reportedly died at Sonja Kill Memorial Hospital, Kampot. RIP.

If the speculation above is correct, sounds like they may have popped some pills and drunk alcohol... which you really shouldn't do as there are plenty of drugs that are contraindicated with alcohol and can cause you to stop breathing. And if they just died in their beds as per the pics in the link then I'd say that is quite possibly what what happened. How awful.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

Warning this link contains a graphic photo of one of the deceased. If you want to check the identity, click on the link and scroll down to the photo. I'm not sure that family and friends know so I'm trying to break this gently. Matthew Jones and James Edward are both very common names so its hard to be sure.

The news website says he was the owner of NOLA restaurant?
The owners of NOLA are Nick and Harmony....at least last time I was there 6 months ago. Maybe they sold the place.
It had great Cajun food but a shady crowd of characters.

I just had a look into his business. Looks like he had just set up this Emrun Group recently. https://www.facebook.com/emrungroup/
From MJ Jones FB page :
EXECUTIVE MANAGER AND RECRUITMENT MANAGER at The Emrun Group
29 April 2016 to present
This is from the Emrun Group website. http://www.emrun.net/#!projects/c1vw1
Image Looks legit.
There is no Emrun Group listed in UK company registration. Just a company called Emrun Limited at a different address, listed as a contractor.

Doesn't really matter now though.
