So...he was in Cambodia 3 weeks?
Where the fuck did this dying man have to leave?
Thailand?
Imagine dying of lung cancer and having to make a road trip to Batburg?
I feel for you Sir.
I don't want to be a burden on my young Khmer wife..but, I sure don't want to go back to the US and die alone.
Rest in Peace ..

I'm a bit surprised that he was able to enter Cambodia as a tourist on April 18th. All land borders were long closed, where could he have flown in from?

Well then again it doesn't really matter anymore. RIP.

I think there is a misunderstanding. The news item said he had been in Cambodia a year on an ER visa which expired on April 18, not that he arrived on that date.
