American ARTHUR BELLUOMO Dies of Overdose in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Fri Sep 07, 2018 7:35 pm

Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: A 27-year-old American citizen, ARTHUR FRANK STANLEY BELLUOMO, died from a drug-induced heart attack after using too much on September 06, in Golden Home Guesthouse on Street 172.

On September 04 at 7:30 pm, Arthur Belluomo checked-in at Golden Home Guesthouse, where he was paying $6 a night. On September 05 at 10:30 AM, the victim took his girlfriend to the Phnom Penh International Airport. At 1:30 PM, the victim came back to the guesthouse, but he left again at 7 PM. At 11:10 PM, the victim back to the guesthouse, which was the last time the staff saw Mr. Belluomo alive. The next day, on September 06 at 2 PM, the guesthouse staff hadn't seen the victim go out of his room yet, so they went to knock on the door but nobody replied.

They unlocked the door and found him dead on the bed and naked. The guest house owner reported the American's death to the police and the forensics team concluded he died from a heart attack triggered by some sort of substance abuse, most likely OTC morphine and meth.

Arthur Frank Stanley Belluomo from New York was an expat in Hanoi, Vietnam, where he was a volunteer English teacher.

May he rest in peace and condolences to all his friends and family.

Golden Home Guesthouse is probably not a place you want to stay.

In 2014 a 21 year old Swedish backpacker John Kevin Kaya overdosed there.

In 2015 49 year old Finn Juha Tapio died there.

In 2016 German pedophile Udo Sabiniwicz was arrested there.

Sure. It's ok, but it's not to die for.

I cant believe that the sort of people who frequent 172 so often die there.

Barangs go to Street 172 to die, 178 to get robbed, and 136 to get laid.

To be fair, most of them only die once.

There is a forensics team? Must be a Cambodian first. Bravo on them (if true).
