American Tourist WILLIAM RICHARD DAVIS JR Dies of Drug Overdose at New York Hotel in Phnom Penh, Chinese Girlfriend Says

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.

Another dead druggie in Cambodia
That sort of damning statement isn't really helpful. We are in a country where proper examination of crime scenes is rarely followed. Only the most rudimentary forensics and post mortems exist, if they are even done at all. So we have it on the word of his girlfriend that he did drugs, that seems about it. She could well be right, she probably is, and that's good because that's pretty much all we'll ever know about it. I'm not talking about this case in particular, but it would be all too easy to cover up a death here by throwing a few syringes and pills around the room. Dead druggie - case solved - send the cadaver off to be burned before it starts stinking. 8-)
I suspect his embassy will investigate, or at least try to confirm the circumstances if it is at all suspicious.

This was sent to CEO from a friend of his friends, but they didn't know him personally:

"Not an OD. I didn't know him but we had common friends. And I have his gf statement on my phone. According to it they were both got sick during the flight, doctor recommended a rest and he never woke up after check in. Heart stopped."

We asked if they had any additional info, and they replied with this:

"Not really, but it all sounds really weird. My friend living in China knew him well and I am getting really mixed messages about this whole thing. I will let you know if I will learn something for sure.""
"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."
