Two Naked American Tourist Sisters, Lindsey and Leslie Adams, Arrested in Siem Reap, Cambodia for taking nude photos at Angkor Wat Cambodia.

Siem Reap, Cambodia: 2 American sisters, Lindsey Adams and Leslie Adams, have been arrested for taking nude pictures at the Angkor Wat Temples Complex. They have been arrested but no charges have been filed yet. [UPDATE: LINDSEY ADAMS AND LESLIE ADAMS HAVE BEEN CHARGED AND DEPORTED TO THAILAND BY BUS]

(More pictures of Lindsey and Leslie Adams below)

Apsara Authority has confirmed that that Lindsey Adams and her sister Leslie Adams were caught at Preah Khan temple taking pictures of each other with their pants down.

"They lowered their pants to their knees and took pictures of their buttocks," said Keat Bunthan, a senior heritage police official in northwestern Siem Reap province.

This is clearly very upsetting to many Cambodians and comes just weeks after a series of naked foreigners have been arrested while naked in Cambodia. This includes three foreigners riding around on their motorbikes naked, three french guys taking completely nude pictures from behind in the Angkor Complex, a Western couple having sex on a tuk-tuk, and even a Japanese girl releasing pictures of herself posing topless in the Angkor Wat Temple.

The temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia are holy places for Cambodians, so they are very offended when foreigners run around them naked like they are on Spring Break in Cancun, Mexico.

A spokeswoman for Apsara Authority, Ms Chau Sun Kerya, told AFP, "Perhaps they did not know Angkor is a holy site. But their inappropriate activities affect the sanctity of the place." She considers the American tourists actions to be very offensive because Angkor is considered to be sacred ground.

Lindsey Adams and Leslie Adams, the 2 tourists from America have already admitted they have made a mistake by taking nude pictures of each other.

The Lindsey Kate Adams, 22 years old, and Leslie Adams, 20 years old, are both from Yuma, Arizona, but it seems Lindsey lives in Prescott, Arizona, where she just graduated university, and according to her Facebook is "retired" as of January 17, 2015. And Leslie Adams seems to be living in Tempe, Arizona and studying at Arizona State University.

They seem to be on a long holiday and have also done some previous traveling, at least to Europe.

Here's some photos of Lindsey and Leslie Adams in Cambodia:

However, the punishment was suspended in accordance with Article 107,109,111 of the Penal Code.

Are you sure those were the photos mentioned as a "topless selfie by a Japanese girl"? Bummer. :(

1. I don't recall the women in the OP photos being identified as Japanese.
2. For it to be a selfie, one must have taken the pic of themselves by themselves... those pics were taken by a second person.

That is why I thought there must be another separate case being cited.

As I write this there are over 270 non-registered viewers reading this one thread. Interesting. :thumb:

Edit 4: now nearly 3000 viewers reading this thread.

Ok, I'm finally getting somewhere on my quest for naked photos of Lindsey and Leslie Adams naked near the Angkor Wat Temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia...

First, some G-Rated ones...

Lindsey Kate Adams and Leslie Adams on push bikes, possibly in Cambodia:

Image

Lindsay Kate Adams at the beach, but I have no idea which beach:

Image

Lindsey Adams looking happy, which I'm going to guess was taken BEFORE she was arrested in Cambodia and deported:

Image

Lindsey Adams in what appears to be a beach hut:

Image

Lindsey Kate and Leslie Adams, presumably on their way here:

Image

And, just like the French guy's arrested in Cambodia for nude pictures in Siem Reap, they also came to Cambodia via the Hello Kitty airport in Taiwan (i honk it looks like Leslie, not Lindsey:

Image

And last, but far from least, a picture that allegedly appears to be Lindsey Kate Adams naked in Cambodia, or somewhere, I don't know. Technically I guess this nude photos of Lindsey Adams is a half nude or topless photo, but who knows:

Image

^Anyone have a clue where that is?

Oh, and another photo of Leslie Jan Adams and Lindsey Adams in the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia:
