NO JOKE HOWARD aka BRAETON HOWARD Dies in Mexico After Leaving Cambodia

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.

I met him shortly after he got flack for teaching his class how to flip the bird. I like giving people the benefit of the doubt so I got to know him. He was a great guy and we met up three times a week at the Olympic Stadium to train. He always pushed me to do more, try harder, go further.

You were a good man, Braeton, safe travels.

I can 't say I was a big fan of NJH, though I will give him credit for his honesty and openness. I am told it is better to burn out than fade away however I would prefer a long time on this earth as I don't have much faith in an afterlife.

I am sure he will be missed and condolences to his family and friends.

This is ridiculous. RIP man. wtf! How did even you go by "heart - attack". For sure, you were fitter and younger than me... I truly hope... it's a better place there.

Terrible news.

Because it's easy enough to find out it's true...click on his mother's Facebook to see her tributes to him from the last 24 hours.
RIP NJH...met just once but seemed to be a decent enough guy but had his demons.

I don't have any link but if you watch his videos of when his mom was here she mentions her name. She seemed really nice in his vids and obviously liked Cambodia a lot. I'm still wondering what the hell happened to him, I thought he used to look very solid. Was he doing steroids? How do Mexican Police compare to Cambodian Police on a scale of competency? In one of his recent videos (a few days ago) he talked about problems with neighbors. That could become an issue in a country where every village seems to have its own death squad. I'd like to know more somehow. 8-)

JB, I also watched Braeton's last vid and wondered the same thing about his neighbor and what became of that incident he described in detail.

I was indifferent to him, but intrigued, and I watched way more of his video's than I could justify. As a dad of a boy his age, this really strikes me hard, and I feel very saddened upon hearing this news.

Braeton did have a lot of intestinal fortitude, grit, and was not stupid. He had a broad range of interests and from his own self research he could speak his opinion on many topics. He wasn't afraid to put himself out there and be ridiculed for it, neither to take a chance and be wrong. We could see it clear; his own demons, and even there, he was willing to speak of it, to be honest to himself and to us. Not many people are like that, and for that I admired him.

The Cambodian expat community could do wise to take pause (I know this will never happen) and reflect on how they spoke (and speak) of this young man, because while he was an in your face colorful character, he was after all, a brother, a son, a friend to many, and a child of God; a human being, with feelings and flaws like us all.

To Braeton's family and especially to his mom. I cannot imagine your grief, and I commiserate with you at this tragic time in your life. My sincerest condolences to you and your family, and to all that knew and loved Braeton.
