Heart attack just means dead young white person and no drugs found in his room.

Sure, anything's possible, but it's much more common that a sudden death occurring to someone of this age would be related to substance abuse, even if he died in his home country, without even adding in Cambodia's reputation as a place where Westerners abuse drugs.

There are those who think heroin is being sold as cocaine in Cambodia and that young Westerners are dying because of it. Maybe there should be more warnings about this. The U.S. State Department consular information sheet on Cambodia warns about the dangers of armed robbery with military weapons and unexploded land mines. It says nothing about the dangers of ingesting street drugs.
