A 41-year-old-Brithish national died on Tuesday from a drug overdose in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district, police said.
The tourist, who was identified as Nolan Games Peter by district police, died at about 7:30pm at the Home Town guesthouse in Daun Penh district’s Chey Chumneas commune, district police officer Hong Sothy said.
He had arrived in Cambodia via the Poipet international checkpoint along the border with Thailand on September 2 and had stayed at the guesthouse since then, Hong Sothy said.
“He lost consciousness three times at the guesthouse before he died,” Hong Sothy told the Post yesterday.
“He died on his bed at the room. According to our examination, he died from a drug overdose,” the officer said.
Police found a small package of crystal methamphetamine on a desk in his room, Hong Sothy said.
