Australian English Teacher at Western University Jonathan Bond from Adelaide Dies at Home from Apparent Drug Overdose

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.

Helps to hide the blood stains.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

The bed sheets match the curtians? Oooh-lah-lah. So fancy. That just screams CLASSY. I bet there is not really a window behind those curtains.

:cry:
Only 24 years old. Are the deceased getting younger or am I getting old ? More and more under 40s seem to be having "heart attacks" in Cambodia. Is there something special going around ?
RIP. Sorry for the family - far too young.

Obviously some unadulterated double uo globe standard number 4 product is making it's way to Phnom Penh.
These poor children should be warned.

Far out. Fuct indeed.
Thats bad enough to merit some sort of warning like they did in Amsterdam when they had some nasty "coke" going around.
So everyone, tell your friends to be careful out there. And stick it on FB or whatever. Not sure if it's being sold as C or H, but spread the news to be extra careful.

And yeah, I know, drugs are baay'd m'kay.

I'm pretty sure most of these youngsters have already made their minds up about this stuff. My friends don't involve themselves in narcotics.

Here is Jonathan Bond on Facebook announcing his plans to move to Phnom Penh:

Image

"HEAR YE! HEAR YE! Due to some unforeseen changes in my overall life plan I have moved to Phnom Penh, Cambodia for at least the next year.

I'm teaching at a uni and I'm about to move in to my very own apartment. As I result I will be using fb considerably more and may even post photos to prove this is not a elaborate hoax.

If anyone is ever in the country or has friends that want insider tips just hit me up. I'd more then happy to show people the cheapest and/or best places to drunk (among other things of course)."

Looks like he's been planning to leave Australia and travel the world TEFLing since at least 2011:

Image

"well....i have moved down to campbelltown, still working in the same place but not for much longer coz i am studying TESOL at tafe which is a 10 week course and then i am hoping to teach english as a private tutor in adelaide while i wait for my girlfriend to finish uni (she's 20 so she only has another year after this one) and then off to see the world. so pretty much i am on the fast(er) track to a career and an adult(ish) life."

A shame how quickly drugs can ruin everything for you. He didn't even last a year in Cambodia. Image
