Did that post mortem include a blood test check for fentanyl? Likely culprit.

Died of a heart attack, according to the postmortem examination conducted at the residence?!?

The coroners office must have some pretty state-of-the-art necropsy gear in order to be able to conduct an examination on the floor of the decedent's living room.

I can picture the scene...

...a mix of about a half dozen random and semi-relevant Khmer dudes standing around staring, sucking on their teeth and taking copious photos for Facebook. The HNIC shows up and with a deep sigh, starts complaining about how his KTV mistress is starting to be a pain in the ass....whilst he disdainfully waves his underling off to commence negotiations with the guesthouse owner on the body removal bribe price.....he then takes a dismissive scan of the room and body and declares..."heart attack"....

....and with that they head off to the corner cafe for some coffee and khuy tieu.

This, plus the advanced scheme used for examination:

1. Check pulse
a. Negative: cause of death: heart failure
b. Positive: call Calmette for further details

etc.
