From news reports, it looks like they released his body to the family on the day itself. Why don't more people request for a full post-mortem, or insist on a coronor's inquest...

Because such things do not exist here. CSI Cambodia follow a rigorous flow chart if it isn't immediately obvious e.g. killed in a vehicle accident, gun shot wounds, stabbing etc :

1) are there drugs nearby?
- yes = died of overdose from drugs
No - go to point 2

2) are they western and in a hotel room or at home or in a massage palour with no drugs nearby?
- yes = died of heart attack*
No - go to point 3

3) are they dead in nature?
- yes = died of fainting due to the trees/lack of oxygen

If no go to point 4

4) are they found hanging?
- yes = suicide**

If no go to.point 5

5) are they found dead with signs they were ill e.g. some aspirin or cold medicine on the table?
Yes - died after a long illness

*also applies if no other reason can be deduced from the scene and only applies to foreigners

**also applies if hanging with hands tied behind back, fallen off a building or been decapitated then put their head in the trunk and drove into a lake (without their head physically attached)



Hope that helps

I met a man who called himself Rain whilst walking on riverside one morning a couple of months back. He was clearly suffering from an enlarged liver. We shared some tea, and he offered me liquor which he had almost finished.
He talked about his resignation to death, and that it would likely be soon. Like a cat who sensed their own death he seemed content on spending his final days near the river.
I wonder if he finally succumbed?
