It's at moments like this one when I both lament and rejoice in the fact that I'm illiterate in Cambodian. If I could read the language I most likely would know what happened. On the other hand I would miss out on "a waiter at the inn above the scene found the victim to eat "or "After cops suck urine out of the body..." and "and found the door was deposited inside suitcases next to the bodies left lying in a pool of tingling in fertility a fillet knife. "

All of which does very little to contribute to the genuine pathos of the victim's demise.

Very sad.

It seems Robert Durkin was in Calmette Hospital in bad shape days before taking his life.

He was desperately looking for someone to help him with translations, offering any amount of cash, and he says he had a perforated lung, which caused his face to swell, making him look like "Fat Bastard" from the Austin Powers movies.

Rest in Peace.

And why is his passport only valid for 2 years? It was issued in 2016 and expires in 2018.

Emergency passport or something?
