Canadian Man Commits "Suicide" by Hanging (suspicious)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

If I decide to depart this mortal coil I don't think I'm going to pick slow strangulation. All I'll have to do is pick up some alleged cocaine from a tuk tuk driver. Works every time.

Wow, in that case it's probably wise to flush your dead customers down the Mekong.
Und der Haifisch der hat Tränen
Und die laufen vom Gesicht
Doch der Haifisch lebt im Wasser
So die Tränen sieht man nicht

In der Tiefe ist es einsam
Und so manche Träne fliesst
Und so kommt es dass das Wasser
In den Meeren salzig ist

One man and one woman 2 - 3 weeks ago found floating on the Tonle Sap.

Those photographers are relentless. I'm sure they try to find the goriest angle. But both Cambodian. Maybe they sink them with weights?

I also immediately wondered if he'd died elsewhere and been moved. Any reasonable coroner (I know, I know) will be able to determine if he was hanged elsewhere, unless it was in remarkably similar circumstance - the damage is quite specific. Mind you, a local coroner will probably rule heart attack or slipped from a balcony.

The passport says he was born in New Westminster, which is in British Columbia, on the Pacific coast. The family name is clearly Japanese and there were a lot of Japanese in BC since before WW2.

This is actually a very common way to commit suicide. You take tranquilizers and you set the rope up in such a way that when you lose consciousness you suffocate.

The other similar method involves a plastic bag. It's supposed to be the easiest way to go. I had a friend who checked out the same way. We found out after the fact that he had done extensive research on the topic.

The only reason we don't get to see it back home is because the newspapers don't print the pictures.

Apparently an oxygen mask hooked to a slow flow of NO2 is the departure of choice at the moment, combination of non-air environment and happy times. Truly sad that anyone gets to this point, but so common. I've probably ranted before about our home town in Oz being the earner's capital ($100,000 minimum income on the mines) but an ex-proportionately high number of early check-outs. Loss of hope for the future, mostly.

Nembutal is the drug of choice for a peaceful way out I thought
