American James Robert Keith Found Dead From Apparent Drug Overdose in Sun & Moon Urban Hotel, 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.

Question to the locals, what is Mall Dolphin? Is that something that to get in Cambodia, or is it a nick name for an American drug. In looking it up, I found nothing, just Dolphin Mall in Miami, Florida, US. A big shopping plaza mall.
:ugeek: Welcome to the awesome world of Googl Translate which when mixed with Khmer news creates time and space holes - see the string theory and quantum physics lit for further explanations.
As a result of these holes in the matter, shopping malls appear out of nowhere, and sometimes even whole countries like Andorra or Liechtenstein; foreigners have their nationalities exchanged, their ages extended ( 50 year olds often become "old men" ) and for some reason this also creates heart-attacks.
Don't know why there is a mention of drugs, that usually gets swallowed into the vortex.

Hello new to the board. How does he get home???? Do you think the extreme heat has anything to do with it? Also what type of "drugs?"
I hope it wasn't a bad "ED" drug!

Rooms are supposed to be cleaned and ready by 12 -1 pm but depends on the day when they get round to doing it. If everyone checks out at 12 that day, it could take a while.

Very good point about him traveling alone and whether he may have had company with him. Seeing as Cambodia is a sex tourist destination , one wonders why so many of the expat/tourist dead are male and found alone, with no mention of company.

Combine this with the fact that a lot of them were hanging out in areas where prostitution is to be found ( 2 deaths recently in 136 street) and reports of people in girly bars drugging customers on the increase and the fact that some quite nasty drugs can be easily purchased for a few thousand Reil, one starts to rightly or wrongly put 2 and 2 together.

IMO most of the time they would be drugging tourists as opposed to expats, but there would be some cross over now and again.

I'm fairly sure most deaths are down to the customers drugging themselves, but I do wonder how a 40 yo man would be stupid enough to OD. Welcome to the KOW.

Really? this isn't 1998
i would bet its less than .001% of tourist that are in to the night life with girls when u consider most tourists are asians, couples or families heading to SR

Sorry no figures just my guess

PS guys that are doing drugs ( and than od) are not really interested in sharing with a bar girl

Your stats are interesting. I didn't say that all tourist here were sex tourists just that it is a sex tourist destination. You lost me there Richard? Care to elaborate? Are you saying that only regular drug users OD? I would have thought it would have been the other way round?


Anyhow, I wasn't talking about female tourists, although they have be known to fuck Cambodians too (sorry make meaningful love ) they don't seem to appear dead in rooms and tuk tuks etc very often. IMO any male that comes to Cambodia is susceptible to going into one of its famous bars etc. Even better if they have no previous experience. Fresh meat. Buy me lady drink wicar?

What also interests me is that you don't often hear of non-western tourists being found dead in similar circumstances. I can't remember many on CEO or TOF in the last couple of years,nor in the PPP or CD? I think there was a Turkish guy and an Iranian, and possibly a Pakistani?


Is your main point that a lot of these tourists found dead in guest houses were not the sort of people who would use prostitutes or go to a girly bar out of interest?

Nope,
1 a tourist "trying" out a new drug, i would bet this is minuscule amount
2, a tourist buying coke and using it like coke, but its not
3. a regular user not used to the purity
4. buying one drug thinking its something else or bad cut


IF u are used to say 40% purity smack an buy 75% or more and use the same amount , fuck , it hits u in the back of the neck/head so quick ur lucky if u don't die
( would account for od's found with the needle still in their arm)

Any male that comes to Cambodia is susceptible to going into one of its famous bars etc. Even better if they have no previous experience. Fresh meat.
Ur really generalizing here

Yep, I agree with your points about regular OD's (although I can't still understand why someone who has been an addict for years would not go easy on the first amount of a new supply?) That's why I said over 50% were caused by the customer administering it to himself.

I think the courts would prove me right on my demographics of who uses prostitutes. Lol How many males who have visited Cambodia have not been into a girly bar at some point, even if it was only once out of curiosity? I know of quite a few women that have anyway. You only need to go in once and buy a drink to get drugged, if that is what happens. What's the chances that it has never happened?

I'm trying, but failing, to see the big connection between sex tourists and drug tourists. Sure, they aren't mutually exclusive groups but why would you connect them in a case like this? JuanSweetPotato is trying to make out that these foreigner junkies who OD here have been poisoned by taxi-girls, just like he blames all his own problems on thieving local scum. Utterly pathetic.
