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

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Fri Apr 20, 2018 5:23 pm

Phnom Penh, Cambodia: On April 20 at 10am, American Tourist ROSS WESTCOTT CHAGNON, 28 years old, was found dead in room 211 at Kiyo Guesthouse on street 310, Sankat Olympic, Khan Chamkarmorn, Phnom Penh.

Before the incident, the guesthouse owner knocked on the door many times, but there was no response from Ross Chagnon, so they unlocked the door to get inside the room and found the victim dead on the the bed. After they discovered his lifeless body on the bed, the guesthouse's owner reported it to police immediately.

Ross Chagnon was born on July 28,1989 in Hartford, Connecticut and lives in Brooklyn, New York.

The police examined the body and determined that the victim died from "fainting." His corpse has been taken to store at the Soviet Friendship Hospital in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Note: Authorites say he died from "fainting," but Ross Westcott Chagnon said on Facebook just yesterday that he had Dysentery, which is now the most likely cause of death rather than "fainting."

And here is the last pic he posted on Facebook in Cambodia before his death:

More details of his death and graphic images from the scene of his room when he was found are in our Darknet Cambodia News Forum: darknet-cambodia-news/american-tourist- ... 19566.html

Condolences to Ross W. Chagnon's friends and family and may he rest in peace.

Wow, it does look very much like a young KiR, now that you mention it.

Seems he's been on a mission to visit all 192 countries, and had been to 1 68 already. Cam Nivag had some competition.

Here is his Instagram account, where he goes by the name baron.von_fancy:

He had also just been accepted into medical school:

What's a fetty wap?

Is it the same as a wetty fap?
wetty fap
To masturbate in the shower while your boo is in the kitchen cooking pies.
My lady was doin' the homemaker thing and didn't want to get nasty, so I took a quick shower and a wetty fap.
