A TEENAGE girl was found raped and murdered on Wednesday morning in Kampong Cham province’s Tbong Khmum district. Several villagers said they saw the victim go on a walk with a 40-year-old man from the village late on Tuesday night. Several people who knew the girl panicked when she had not returned by about 2:30am. Police said the victim, 15, was found strangled to death with her T-shirt the following morning, just outside the village. Police have launched an investigation into the whereabouts of the missing man, whom they have tagged as the prime suspect in the case.
