A man's decapitated body was found in Phnom Penh's Kambol district on Monday after being run over by a train.
Police believe he had fallen asleep on the tracks of the Phnom Penh-Sihanoukville line.
Kambol district police chief Hang Monny on Monday identified the man as Ly Leap, a 37-year-old car mechanic from the district's Kantork commune.
Witnesses said Leap had been eating and drinking with friends on Sunday night until around 11:30pm, Monny told The Post.
He was later seen sitting on the railway tracks talking on his phone. His headless body was found the next morning in the same spot.
“According to witnesses and the nature of the bloodstains on the tracks, police have concluded the victim was drunk and fell asleep on the railway line, with a train then running him over,” Monny said.
