Cambodia Breaking News (Phnom Penh): On July 05, 2019, at 2:40 am, a 41-year-old American man, CHRISTOPHER DAVID SMITH , died of a heart attack caused by a drug overdose, in room 102, in Nisai Apartment, on street 516, Sangkat Beung Kok 1, Khan Toul Kok, Phnom Penh.

The American arrived in Cambodia on 4 July from Vietnam, and traveled from Bavet to Phnom Penh that day. That night at 8:00 pm, when the victim and his Australian wife checked in to the apartment, staff report that the victim was drunk. At 8:40 pm the same evening, the victim went out drinking and came back to the apartment at 11:00 pm. His wife was waiting for him in the room, then he went to the bathroom and locked the door.
After that, his wife heard some loud crashes in the bathroom, so she went to ask the staff to open the door. They saw the victim had collapsed on the floor, and the sink had fallen on him.
The American man was sent to the hospital immediately, but the doctor said that he was already dead on arrival. It is reported that the victim had a 15 year history of struggling with depression and drug use.

Not the best idea he ever had with his history to travel to PP and have a night out>
sad for his wife, must be devastated.
