RIP.

Could this be the same Paul Clough from 8 years ago?

He has the same name, is the same age, and looks similar.

This Paul Clough was caught 8 years ago in Venezuela attempting to smuggle cocaine back to England.

"In February of last year, undercover police in Venezuela filmed the Samantha arriving in a warehouse in the port city of Puerto Caballo. Paul Stromberg and Paul Clough will be sentenced later 
Police seized the boat, and used X-ray equipment to examine it, the court heard. They discovered a substantial number of blocks hidden in the lower half of the boat beneath a false floor. The jury was told after drilling through the floor, they discovered 337 kilos of cocaine said to be "almost perfectly pure". 
Once "cut" with other drugs it would have had a street value estimated at more than £40m.

I know linking an international drug smuggler with the same name, age and appearance as someone who ends up in Cambodia is pretty far fetched though.

Yes, well, the accountant actually, been here more than a decade I believe. Real nice guy. Somebody I liked very much and can still hear our last conversation in my head. I do not recognize the person in the post above.

I think it's farfetched to say they have the same appearance. Also, the news reports from the UK say that the drug smuggling Paul Clough was 44 in May 2008. The deceased Paul Clough was only 43 in May 2008.
