American Steven Simonsen Jumps to his Death From 4th Story on Street 136 in Phnom Penh (Next to Spider-Man Bar)

Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: A 52 year old American tourist from California, STEVEN MATTHEW SIMONSEN jumped to his death on Street 136, from the 4th floor of Amari Watergate Hotel, right next to Spider-Man Bar.

He was instantly killed when he landed on the top of an Toyota Highlander. He had only been in Cambodia for a few days before he tragically took his life in front of a crowd of people in the country's capital.

May Steven Simonson rest in peace and condolences to his friends and family.

Not yet. We've added more pics in the Darknet Cambodia News forum, but he's not identifiable.

RIP.
