Western Man in Fatal Motorbike Crash in Phnom Penh

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.

Does anyone know the name of the victim?
The information coming out is he was called Randell "Tex" Penrod and he didn't crash but pulled over feeling unwell and collapsed and was unable to be resuscitated. RIP
Pedantry sorry, but I ride a similar sized bike & there's no way that is "pulled over" and at 300kg or thereabouts it'd take about 3-4 blokes to lift it into that final resting position as seen (but why would you move a parked bike, and worse lay it down instead of using the kick stand?). Looks as though he was unwell on the bike, slowed down & shunted it up & into the mound of dirt there and then collapsed afterwards. No foul play I'd agree & RIP.

To be more constructive, it seems Mr. Penrod was in Pattaya around 2002, so a longer term expat out this way - perhaps somebody over in Thailand would know him better since Cambo expats don't appear to know him? More particularly also moved in golfing circles there:

As I understand he was known by many people here, perhaps not forum members and was a well liked guy. Some of the bigger bike riders (BMWs, Harleys) normal MC club members (not rebels!!!!!). And I had heard second hand he was somewhere and left feeling unwell and the eyewitnesses say he pulled up and fell over which perhaps where my post was not accurate.

Very sad news I knew Tex and he was a fine man who loved his motorbike and I am very sorry to hear he has died. Rip Tex and condolences to the family.
Who ever it is after his possessions fuck off they all belong to his family you greedy little man.
In no way was I attempting to make a claim on any of his assets. However, for a long time, I've always felt that there ought to be some sort of general barang estate legal entity where possessions of foreigners go to in the event of their death. Then an administrator of such entity could sell them and return proceeds to the family overseas, or to specified people, perhaps Khmer, as one had previously directed, assuming such a thing could be done.

A hell of a lot better than the fucking Cambodian police claiming everything for every barang that kicks off here, don't you think?

You need to rely on the honesty of the people who access the room. Some people will just take anything valuable, then leave what's left to be sorted out. You wont know how much cash was in the room, or if anyone has taken some, or if they took a phone or computer, etc.
