Search On for Missing Woman AMELIA BAMBRIDGE on Koh Rong, Cambodia (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.

Another poseur?
Tea Vichet did not find her.
Fishermen did, and alerted authorities.

Also, the reported 48k's seems to be incorrect - the quoted co-ordinates and other reports indicate further.

I believe in the interest of closure that there needs to be a detailed forensic autopsy completed on Amelia, water sample from lungs, any other fluid samples, DNA analysis and full screen toxicology including blood, urine and brain.
The family deserve to know without any doubt what happened to their daughter otherwise they will never be able to fully grieve and hopefully one day come to an acceptance of what tragic event took their daughter from them.
Maybe that crowd funding exercise and a bit of assistance from the UK foreign office could go a long way in getting Amelia home to the UK.

RIP Amelia. :(

Excellent news. Nothing gained by speculating what an official autopsy will find, but I too feel there's been some foul play. Amelia is said to be conscientious and careful, one clue being her bag that showed how well prepared she tended to be. I am more confident of a thorough investigation now that the CPU is involved.
