American Steven Simonsen Jumps to his Death From 4th Story on Street 136 in Phnom Penh (Next to Spider-Man Bar)

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.

Hmmm, HIV is not a death sentence any more. Anti-retrovirals are very effective. However, I'm going to speculate that, if he knew this, he maybe thought he could not afford the lifelong treatment and decided to end his life. Very sad, indeed. RIP.
Lets hope he didn't give it to anybody else!

Yep, I'm sure the owner will be taking it to the local Wat very soon, to have some holy water sprinkled on it and some red thread tied around the rear-views.

Khmer's are pretty prickly when it comes to ghosts.

Anyway RIP, tragic all around.

Wonder if this will be a trend with more people coming over from pattaya.
Foreigner jumping from buildings like this is something very rare here, as far as I can remember.

You think?
Suicide is pretty high up there in illnesses.

FYI: Cleaned this topic up a little bit.
"Life is too important to take seriously."

"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."

Interesting. Someone mentioned HIV in connection with this guy.

Do those packages look like antiretroviral medications or something different?
