Jack from Belgium. (Nick's Bar) is dead. RIP

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.

Yeah, and he was also advised where to get off
And Trolled mercifully. A man who was extremely vulnerable.

It all depends on the circles you move in. The Daun Penh neighborhood is full of desperadoes. 172, 136, 104 an 51 are all packed with creepy fuck-ups who think they are living the Phnom Penh life. Most people I know live far from that area. Some of us might come into the Riverside the odd time to hit whatever restaurant or bar but generally stay away from that area. It's funny when people talk about bubbles when the only experience they have is living in one of the most obvious ones.
Exactly this. The point being Pieman thinks everyone here is the same as those he knew from his time going from one 50 cent beer bar to the other across 136/130/172 and therefore a find should be set aside as we are all on the brink of financial disaster. As JB points out many don't live around that area much less frequent it these days. Save for a trip to Larry's or Garage once in a while I rarely go there.

Additionally most people I know are settled and have good jobs and know how to save money and are far from being destitute and would have the family or friends to assist if they were in a pinch.

This is some poor soul's death thread.

Not a place for you tossers to play, "My hangout spot and friends are better than your hangout spot and friends."

Back on topic: I'm beginning to wonder why there are no reports of his death anywhere, except for the OP. I mean, the way he was apparently living should have made headlines like "Foreigner found dead on the street" or similar. Nothing...

Who can confirm the news as reported by OP?

Before the known XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXX gentlemen derail this thread again:
Independent confirmation could be obtained from:
The Belgian honorary consul of Cambodia, Mr Thierry Dalimier, phone (+855) 12 840 056
The Belgian embassy in Bangkok
Calamet hospital
The Immigration Police in Sorya
Or generally every other holier-than-thou alcoholic that saw him on the ground before he was carried away, That is if they can remember that evening.

And that's exactly why this normally would have been reported elsewhere, as it always is, except in this particular case.

Lots of people die here without it being "reported".
Just call the consul if you are that curious about your old pal Jack. Just let him wake up first, it is 2.30am in Cambodia after all. I am certain he's got a regular life to attend to, unlike some others.
