WIFE UPSET HUSBAND WAS ALREADY MARRIED
Police in Kampong Chhnang are investigating the death of a 24-year-old woman after her body was found with a poisonous substance around her mouth Tuesday morning. Investigators have hypothesised that the woman killed herself after discovering that her husband, to whom she had been married for almost a year, was already married to another woman. The apparently polyamorous husband said he found his wife’s body atop a hill behind his house three hours after she had left home that morning. Police said the woman died because she ingested poisonous tablets and because she was sent to hospital too late. The woman’s mother is asking police to investigate.
