Forensics exam wraps

Police in Siem Reap said yesterday that the examination of remains believed to be of Canadian journalist and author Dave Walker is complete, but that definitive test results wouldn’t be available for several weeks.

“The body of a foreign victim was already examined by a specialist doctor who was sent from Thailand, but the results of the examination of the body were not released yet,” Chao Mao Vireak, chief of Siem Reap Provincial Immigration Police, said.

According to Mao Vireak, the body was preliminarily identified as Walker’s by associates who recognised his clothing and shoes, but the specialist had taken skin and bone samples for more definitive testing.

“The doctor has completely done this work, and he has already left for Thailand,” he said. “According to the doctor, the results of body’s examination will be released within four or five weeks.”

Neither the Canadian Embassy in Bangkok nor a representative of Walker’s family could be reached for comment yesterday.
