Police Blotter: 10 August 2007




JULY 29: Six people escaped after killing Seang Samang, 43, while he was sleeping

at midnight at his house in Mouk Kras village, Kampong Cham province. Samang's wife

told police the six forced and opened the front door of the house and shot her husband

four times with an AK-47 then escaped after stealing a mobile phone. Police said

robbery was not a reason for the murder, it is a revenge attack as Samang had recently

argued with people.

JULY 31: 48, Tim Vanarin, a military colonel at the Ministry of Defense, was

found dead in the early morning on the sidewalk of National Road 5 in Boeng Por village,

Kampong Chhnang province. Vanarin had been chopped many times with a knife. Police

said revenge attack was likely the motivation of the killing rather than robbery

as Vanarin recently told people that someone threatened to kill him. Police are looking

for a Land Cruiser because people had seen the car parked there the previous night.

Police are looking for a man who escaped after they arrested six people.
