Or more likely, was hit in the head with something. But not by a Khmer, of course.

The Khmer autopsy specialist qualifies as the very top in his profession.
Where else in the world would you get this conclusion: "the victim committed suicide, because he died after he hit his head on something"?
Only in Cambodia, where the autopsy specialists are way better than anywhere else in the world!

And after his 'suicide' the victim of course rolled into the water of the river. All makes perfect sense...

I certainly hope it is not the poster who was scheduled to depart the Kow on the 22nd and is still here. Certainly, this fellow has both moved on and remained here at the same time.

UPDATE: Another Khmer source says that foul play is suspected. More details expected today.

Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: An unidentified foreigner aged about 30 years old, was found dead, floating on the Tonle Sap river, near the popular tourist area of Sisowath Quay in Phnom Penh.

Before the incident, local people near the river saw a body was floating on the river. They reported to the police immediately. The police and local people took the body to the land. The police identified that the victim was a foreigner, but he has yet to be formally identified.

After the examination of the body, the victim's head injury has led police to believe that the victim was murdered a few days ago. The preliminary theory is that the foreign man was attacked and murdered and then and the body was thrown into the river.

The police are presently searching for a murder suspect and looking for the victim's family.

179 metres tall? That should narrow down the identity search a bit! RIP

Dumping bodies in rivers never ends well. Go out to the sticks, dig a hole, fill the hole and scarper. If it is not found in 1 month you are 99% home and dry.

Fuckin amateurs...

True, they're either looking for Lurch or there's a decimal missing. RIP.
