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.

American Man Attempts Suicide in Golden Sorya Mall

Postby General Mackevili » Tue May 20, 2014 7:30 pm

Looks like we have our first dead foreigner thread on CEO. [Please don't get carried away.]

I can only use Google Translate, but it sounds like this happened today around 10:30am. Also, Google Translate calls the title "American woman suicide," but it's clearly not a woman.

I'm assuming the only reason this one WASN'T classified as a "heart attack" is because of the bloody mess. His throat looks cuts in the NSFW picture.

And while the article calls it a "suicide," I think we all know there might be more to this story. Anyone heard anything about this? He's not identified yet, so could be a tourist or an expat.

I also find myself wondering how they know the person is an "American" if they can't identify him. He's not fat, and unless they found him barely still alive, he wouldn't have an accent to help them determine his nationality either.

Here is Google's near worthless translation:
Phnom Penh: Americans do not know the identity security Sorya spotted suicide Food. Suicide do not know why in a standard no vendors in the market place, Surya Mall.
Such an event caused surprise in 10 hours and 30 minutes on 20 May 2014.
According to correspondent Santhepheap confirmed that now Americans are emergency at Calmette Hospital.
Or read it yourself, in Khmer.

Thanks. I just didn't catch it because it was in the "spoiler" and I just glanced over the message. :bow:

Yeah... <ambo_hat> suicides don't cut their own throats, especially not like that. They cut their wrists. </ambo_hat>

Geez! That sure doesn't look like a suicide! And 10:30 am is a strange time for a murder there. Poor guy! Thanks for the translation General. Anyone try to recruit PorkyPig yet?

Well, if slitting your throat doesn't kill you, Calmette Hospital will.
