Haha, that guy is a druggie who tried convincing me he was working 'undercover' in lockstep with Cambodian police as an probate investigator. He was drunk as shit when telling me this. Every undercover agent usually spews off from the mouth telling people that, right?

Not surprising he's somehow missing. Has anyone checked the roadside ditches in Koh Rong?

Ex-special forces?

What would an undercover probate investigator be doing in Cambodia, and how would Cambodian police be involved?

I knew a whacky Thai gal who when I parted ways with her posted my picture and a lot of bullshit about her 'missing friend' on her facebook account asking for anyone who saw me to get in touch with her.
I had told her I was heading north to throw her scent off my trail...
A friend of hers who had my email address wrote me and told me about... I was not on facebook ...had no idea..
I saw the post and was shocked at the detail and seemingly sincerity it contained...
all the while it was just a pissed off gal whose meal ticket had gotten tired of her games and bad habits.

hope they are doing fine.

but that fits the definition of true backpacking...

disappear for a longtime, touch base with home occasionally and stay the hell off social media.
