American Man Attempts Suicide in Golden Sorya Mall

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

It seems an extremely odd method.
Suicide is normally not a public act.
Defies logic really.

With the accidental death of the security guy and now this- I would think the venue will suffer quite a loss in popularity given the belief in supernatural among the nationals.

I don't think logic has anything to do with it if the person in question had been smoking meth.

Besides many people who find themselves in what they feel is a hopeless situation will sometimes cut/stab/harm themselves in areas where they are sure to be found or even where someone can stop them/help them.

A sort of call for help.

But as I said before.. When meth/crack or whatever it is that he had allegedly smoked is in the picture, all logic goes out the window.
Alcohol is necessary so that a man can have a good opinion of himself, undisturbed by the facts

Remember when everyone said that about Koh Pich? Now it's the #1 teenage make-out spot in Phnom Penh.

Not really. He was just performing the double slit experiment.

many cutters do it for two reason

1. it allows them to feel something
2. a cry out for help

I realize he is in a fragile state but it seems if your going to off urslef you do where no one will be around to try an save you.
Sounds more like to me he did it to show his "love" to his gf. (Thai girls ( bar) often cut them selves for this reason
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

Sounds like it'll be a huge loss to the gene pool if he's successful next time

Damn. Sorry to hear. What's his condition? Sounds like he might not have been dead when we put this up.

From what I have been told from someone who has visited him at the hospital he will eventually walk out. The concern is he may try to do himself in again or someone else that's part of this whole thing. Mentally he's a mess.
