Kon Mom district police on Sunday were searching for two murder suspects after a body was found at a banana plantation. The man’s throat had been slit.
The victim was found dead on July 24 at the Hoang Anh Gia Lai company in Serei Mongkol commune, Kon Mom district, Ratanakkiri province.
Kon Mom district police chief Pouk Borith said on Sunday that the victim, Kim Saroeun, 26, lived in Boeung Nay commune, Prey Chhor district, Kampong Cham.
Police said it is possible that more than one assailant was involved but declined to reveal the suspect’s identity.
“I am searching for the suspects. We will not reveal their identities so as not to alert them,” Borith said.
The body was found around 3pm on July 24 by workers who notified Serei Mongkol commune police.
A witness told police that at around 8pm on July 23, the victim was drinking alcohol with another man. Around 10pm the men went hunting for frogs and didn’t return.
Police found two pairs of shoes and a knife, Borith said.
