Sihanouk Ville: Frenchman kills self in guesthouse

Sihanouk Ville
A 30-year-old Frenchman was found dead on Friday night in Preah Sihanouk province in what local officials said was a suicide. Sihanoukville police Chief Man Sour said Monday that the man was discovered at the resort town’s DD Canada guesthouse, having apparently hanged himself. Laurence Bernardi, first secretary of the French embassy in Phnom Penh, identified the deceased as Hyacinthe Navas, and said embassy officials were in contact with his family. “There is every indication that the cause of death is a suicide. We will of course wait for the police report, which will confirm it,” Bernardi said. Navas’s body was taken Saturday to Calmette Hospital, Man Sour said.
