Finn Arto Rantonen Dies of Suspected Drug-Induced Heart Attack in Phnom Penh Guesthouse

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.

Actually a very plausible explanation. Getting anything more than paracetamol in Finland is hard and expensive.
The pictures from the scene don't show any signs of drugs. The drug paraphernalia pictured only shows a drug test and a urine sample but there's none of the usual indications you'd see, for example there are no needle marks on his arm, his weight is normal and there is no pills or powder found (published). Remember Jani Raappana?

How so? Finnish culture is pretty far away from Cambodia...
It was a sarcastic joke aimed at the general in response to the post where I thought it sounded funny that the Cambodian wife was visiting from Finland, sorry.

Ah, the syringe was a urine sample. That makes my previous comment obsolete.

:beer3: there are many Finns in Cambodia,a very tight community and every one seems to know one another.Drugs do play a part of their culture over here,but that goes for at least 50% OFF the ex-pats here.R.I.P :hattip:

I've never met a Finn in Cambodia but they seem to grace the premature death notices here pretty often.

When you do meet one, you'll get it.

Are we allowed to joke around in death threads again? It appears so.

No. I moved a couple posts. Image
