Manhunt on for suspect in slashing

Police have begun a nationwide manhunt for a British national suspected of slashing the throat of a still-unidentified young Cambodian woman found dead under his bed in a Phnom Penh guesthouse on Sunday, said Lieutenant Colonel Mom Sitha of the capital’s foreigner police.

Suspect Stuart James Green, 47, is still thought to be in country after fleeing his hotel Saturday night, Sitha said.

“We have also sent his name, photo and a copy of his passport to all our immigration police checkpoints and other relevant police at Cambodian international airports, and at the borders of Thailand, Laos and Vietnam,” Sitha stated.

Daun Penh district police officer Seng Kosal, meanwhile, said police are still hoping to hear from friends or family members who can identify the victim, whose body remains at Stung Meanchey Pagoda.

The victim – described as thin and 1.53 metres tall – had been seen in the past walking with foreign men near Phnom Penh’s riverside, Kosal added.
