Just wondering how elaborate the post mortem exams are. Have they ever determined that a foreigner was poisoned?

Seems like everything is a heart attack, suicide, or natural cause death. I gotta believe that foreigners have been poisoned, right?

That would cause them grief if they had a suspect to chase. Crime states, less work, all kinds of reasons to give a quick easy cause of death me thinks

Thank you! People are dropping like flies! Old, young, it don't matter! And always males! Can't really compare Cambodia to Vietnam or Thailand, since they are far more advanced. How does Cambodia compare to Myanmar or Laos? Or to other countries in the region that are on the same socio-economic level?
