British RICHARD ANTHONY OWEN aka TONY WELLS Passes Away at The PUB Restaurant in Phnom Penh

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.

Had no idea my brother was even in cambodia.. Tbh we were not close, but thank you for anyone who helped.. No idea why he adopted the name wells.. it was our great grandfathers surname not his..
A lot of guys, um, reinvent themselves when they move to Cambodia. That's how "Rick Owens" from the UK becomes "Tony Wells" in Cambodia. It's suggestive that, for whatever reason, he was keeping a very low profile.

He appeared to be having some sort of stroke or fit at the bar. His breathing was bad with fluid collecting on lungs which may mean heart not functioning correctly.

Ambulance was called but failed to get there in time.

RIP.

Do you think it was because of his job? I don't know about low profile, man. What more could he write to make it more obvious?

R.I.P Rick, a lovely genuine man, who loved to travel. No many people knew he was in Cambodia, but the people who took the time to be in his life did.

whilst he was still fighting, if he gets attacked and cut or injured, it could effect an upcoming fight, or his career

being a boxer doesnt make you invincible lol Tyson as intimidating as he was/is, doesnt stop someone running up to him from behind and stabbing/shooting him once or multiple times, hence bodyguards

More information in our Darknet News Forum.
How do I access the darknet link, please? I knew Rick. When I click on it, I get this: 'You are not authorized to read this forum.'
