Letter: In memory of our slain son

Dear Editor,

Please print the following tribute in the July 2 issue of the Phnom Penh Post It

is a memorial for our son, Douglas Wayne Hosier, who was shot and killed by a robber

on July 2, 1997, at 9:35pm on the corner of 125 and 242 Streets in the Prampi Makara

District of Phnom Penh.

If there are any costs for the printing of this memorial, please submit them to the

Phnom Penh Police Department, who have made little or no effort to apprehend the

thief who took our son's life, even though they knew (we were told) in July 1997

to which gang the young Cambodian robber belonged.

We feel it is the very least the police can do for us in lieu of justice for our

son's murder two years ago in their city.

In Loving Memory of our Son, Douglas Wayne Hosier

murdered in Phnom Penh on 2 July 1997;
