Top 10 Creepiest Cambodian Murders involving Foreigners

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.

That's the one that jumped to mind. What probably makes it more salient for me is that I was in town at the time of his disappearance, was a regular patron at a friend's bar/resto on Sok San, saw the posters appealing for information and was asked by a friend of his if I'd seen him recently.

Unfortunately, not only had I not seen him around the time of his disappearance, I had no recollection of ever having even seen him in the area at all. His face rang no bells at all, which when I looked into the case later on the linked site surprised me because he lived on Sok San and was obviously active in the area. However, I didn't live there myself and was more of a night visitor to said friend's bar, so that may account for it as I don't think he was so much of a nightbird.

I had, however, previously met one of the parties named on that website but instinctively didn't like her on the first and only meeting, where we actually may have passed a few words but, if so, very few. After that I saw her regularly popping up in the area but made sure there was no reason or possibility of interaction.

An ugly, chilling and case that I would imagine will never be resolved. That website doesn't seem to have any information or updates added for a few years now (unless I'm missing something) but I'm convinced of one thing and that, as ever in Cambodia, there's plenty of people have seen or know enough to provide the answers as to the what, who, when and how but maybe not the why. There's lots of mouths but they won't always speak and there's twice as many eyes but they always see, they miss nothing.

I can't find the link, but there was this Korean/American guy who had been quite successful at electrical contracting and poker. I knew him to say hello to. So anyway he seemed very smooth at first but eventually hooked up with a sketchy chick and somewhere along the way got into meth/ice whatever. Then he fell off a balcony and busted his leg and went to jail. Why did he fall off? Maybe because he had somehow murdered his Vietnamese girlfriend a few days before and hidden her body under the slats of the bed. When the smell got too bad he tried to set it all on fire and hide the evidence but the smoke was too much so he dived off the balcony. He was in jail for a few months but when he got a 10 year sentence he hung himself. What a fucking mess.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

Another "let's put the corpse under the bed" case:

https://english.cambodiadaily.com/news/ ... enh-49781/
“This is murder, because the victim got killed and the suspect put the body under the bed,” said Phnom Penh municipal penal police chief Eng Sorphea. “Never has a person died under a bed by themselves.”
A guy named Stuart James Green, who fled the scene.

Body of a Male Foreigner in a Suitcase - from 2015.
newsworthy/body-male-foreigner-found-su ... tml#p96516
Seems like it was never resolved ? From what I remember it was from the Russian wars in Sihanoukville era.
Warning- may be some dead body photos in spoilers. Like here: newsworthy/body-male-foreigner-found-su ... tml#p96534

That link seems to be working but here's another in which he is identified as being from Eccles UK.

Yeah, looks like he killed himself after he went on the run.
