Police probe dissected body found in plastic bag

Police are investigating a case of a dissected body that was found in a blue plastic bag at a plot of land in Kouk Roka commune’s Trapeang Por village in Phnom Penh’s Prek Pnov district on Wednesday.

The remains are speculated to belong to a Korean national. Chhouk Chamroeun, 39, reported to the police immediately after spotting the bag in which two pieces of the body was found.

Phnom Penh Municipal police chief Sar Thet said the police “do not have [any clear leads at present]” adding that “the body has been brought for DNA testing”.

Kouk Roka commune chief San Sin said: “the body is decaying and the victim might have been killed about two weeks ago.”
