The title from the DM article here is misleading; for the moment, the information is simply that Cambodian police "could" reopen an investigation.

Cambodian police could reopen the case of British backpacker Amelia Bambridge after tests showed the date rape drug GHB was in her system when she died.

Amelia 21, from Sussex, was found floating at sea in October 2019 and an inquest later determined her cause of death as 'accidental drowning'.
But a bombshell toxicology report made public last month found traces of the drug in her system when she drowned in the sea off Cambodia, sparking fears her drinks were spiked.

If the British Government formally requests a review, officers in the Asian country say they will revisit the tragic case.

MDMA - commonly known as ecstasy - and the hallucinogenic drug MDA were also found in her body but Amelia's mother Linda Schultes, 53, says she would never have taken these willingly.

Instead, Linda believes her daughter was 'spiked' while partying on Police Beach on the Cambodian island of Koh Rong and passed out before she was swept out to sea.

The mother suspects there has been a 'cover up' and believes the culprit who allegedly spiked Amelia is still at large, accusing local cops of bungling the original probe. ... ridge.html
