Ladyboy strangled with the handle of a purse

A 44-year-old ladyboy was killed in a rental house located in the Kilometre 6 commune of the capital’s Russey Keo district by an unidentified individual late Sunday night.

Yin Sopheak, a police official at Kilomet 6 commune said yesterday that the victim, Ros Sophanith, 44, was strangled using the handle of a purse around midnight on Sunday.

“His death was a murder, because authorities have seen scars on his neck and the purse handle left with the victim,” Sopheak said. Ploch Plek, 41, the owner of the rental house, said that the victim was likely killed by one of his sexual partners.

“I do not know who his partner is, because he has various partners and most are taken at night,” he said.

Authorities said the investigation is ongoing.
