Kampot, Cambodia News: A 68-year-old American expat, PETER BUTERWORTH, was found dead on the side of the road next to a motorbike in the early morning on October 01, in Tadeb village, Kampot city.

According to local media, the police went to the scene to examine the body and determined that the victim died from a motorbike accident because he drove the motorbike while intoxicated and crashed, but friends that knew him said he was rushing to the hospital because of chest pains, and that he doesn't even drink.

Some kind words said about Peter Butterworth said on CEO's Facebook page:

'Peter was a real mensche. A friend. He was an improbably good guy, the gentle giant. He was a star athlete. Women were always hitting on him. He never had any gripes about his situation because he recognised his lot was privileged. He refused to fight in Vietnam and was subsequently jailed for it. He humbly worked as a nurse in a psychiatric hospital because he gave a shit. He wrote tirelessly book after book because he was passionate about raising his and the consciousness of others. Even when I was being an arsehole he wasn't phased and showed patience beyond what is normal. His interest in the world about him and knowledge of geopolitical issues meant that he was a truly righteous American. He said, "The world is on fire but we must do what we can." Always had something good to say. Measured and mature. He died tragically, penniless and foresaken, every day thinking, this is the day my credit cards arrive. His body lay on the side of the road from 2am till 10am despite the call to the cops. He had the pains on Saturday, that he attributed to stress, and died from a heart attack on the Monday. He did not drink. He was better than most but never showed any conceit. Vale Peter Butterworth.'

RIP

I think I have seen him in Kampot or PP. Sounds like he was a good guy.

A very heartfelt eulogy. Reading about his character made me smile. I hope he rest in peace.
