Police find man’s best friend, not man, buried
Police in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district set out on Tuesday to dig up what they suspected was the body of a murder victim; however, they found a dead dog instead. The presence of incense sticks and candles near the gravesite led police to believe it contained the body of a recent murder victim, but they changed their minds after seeing paws and a canine snout protruding from the soil.

‘Too much’ love for girlfriend prompts rape
Police arrested a 28-year-old man accused of raping his girlfriend in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district on Sunday, and the suspect told police he carried out the act because he loved the victim “too much”. Police said the couple were attending a friend’s birthday party when the suspect became jealous upon seeing his girlfriend chatting away with friends. He then drove her to a rented room, where he beat and raped her, threatening her with a knife so she wouldn’t tell anyone. As soon as he drove her back to her house, however, she shouted to relatives that she had been raped.
