Canadian national murdered, police say

The body of a Canadian national was discovered floating in Ratanakkiri’s Yeak Lom lake by villagers yesterday afternoon in what police are calling a case of murder.

Lewis Ross, 63, was found with his neck broken, said Teng Savuth, deputy chief of the Banlung district police.

“This is a murder. His neck was broken and there were rocks placed in his backpack, which was tied to his body with nylon rope.”

Savuth said that Ross was a tourist who had spent the past two months in the province. Police are now attempting to gather information from the various guesthouses he had visited.
