At 75 years old, couldn't they just say that he died of old age?

For a typical Japanese person, age 75 is quite young to die. It's geriatric by Cambodian expat standards though.

They could just say he died, nothing mysterious about someone popping their clogs at that age. It's the young-uns that are dying prematurely that concern me more.

75 is a good long run, no matter the nationality!
