Suicide may be suspect in murder

Phnom Penh authorities on Monday found the body of a foreign national they believe could be the suspect in the brutal murder of a young Cambodian woman found in a guesthouse last month, municipal police official Mom Sitha said yesterday.

Sitha said the body was found without identification in a guesthouse in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district, where the man had apparently smashed a window, then used a shard of glass to cut his own throat.

Police, he added, believed that the man is British national Stuart James Green, the prime suspect in last month’s killing.

“The dead foreigner, we suspect 70 to 80 per cent that it is [Green],” Sitha said.

Police said the guesthouse owner reported that the room had been rented by a friend of the man at 3am on January 5, but that the friend had left soon after.

Sitha said that the British embassy was investigating, but an official there said yesterday that the embassy was not able to comment at this time.
