American Tourist ROSS WESTCOTT CHAGNON Dies of Dysentery in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

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.

What are they hiding ? This is unusual, and the name of the guest house is already in the public domain.
Some interesting blurs in these photos from kohsantepheap daily news.

Hilarious! Trying to hide the name in the blue lettering. Never mind, the name is clearly visible in the red 'logo'.

Dysentery for some reason seems to me like an odd cause of death for a tourist in Phnom Penh.

Looks like he's lost some weight over the years:

"Ross Chagnon was a graduate of the first paramedic program class held at the Academy in 2012 known as the fabulous five. He took a risk on a fledgling program and remained a dear friend to us. He worked as a National Registry evaluator and championed the reality that life is too short so we should enjoy it while we are here. As Lt Morrone put it, “He was a kind, gentle, adventurous soul who loved traveling and spending time knowing and meeting locals.” You will be missed. Another great life cut short. His Instagram quote reads “legends never die.” We agree and those you touched will keep your legend alive and well. RIP."
