Aust man found dead on street

R AYMOND Haslock, a 25-year-old Australian, was found dead in the early hours of March

18 by local police near the corner of 108th street and Norodom Boulevard.

Police suspected that Havlock's death was alcohol-related, but did not rule out the

possibility that it was drug-induced.

The Australian Embassy confirmed that the body was cremated at Ounnalaom Pagoda on

Tuesday morning, after Haslock was officially identified and his family contacted

back home. An embassy official said his ashes would be flown to Australia at an unconfirmed

date.

Haslock, who worked in Phnom Penh as an English teacher, was a well-known figure

around town. Some months ago, Haslock spent nearly a week in T3 prison on charges

of possessing an unlicensed AK-47 assault rifle. He was neither tried nor convicted.
