Teacher’s death: Cause yet to be found, say officials

A committee investigating the alleged murder of US citizen William Glenn has not yet determined a cause of death, a toxicology department official in the capital’s municipal police department said yesterday.

The body of Glenn, 43, was found bruised, bound, wrapped in a curtain and dumped in a trash heap in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district early on Wednesday morning. Police and Ministry of Interior officials investigating the case have not mentioned any suspects.

The director of the Ministry of Interior’s Penal Department, In Bora, said yesterday that little is known about Glenn: “He entered Cambodia sometime around May and was living in a guesthouse in Phnom Penh.”

Glenn was married to a Thai woman, according to former employers and the Interior Ministry, but lived here alone.

Heng Sokuthy, manager at Golden Gate American International School, where Glenn taught as a substitute for about four weeks, said the school’s employees were still in shock over the incident.
