Search on for killers of flirtatious man
A search for the killer of a 57-year-old man, shot dead in Kratie province’s Chhlong district, has been launched. Police said the man was shot while sleeping alone on the ground floor of his home. Nothing was stolen from his house and police believe that revenge was a motivation for the crime. They added that the dead man was thought to be “innocent” and had few problems with anyone, except that he sometimes flirted with the wives of his neighbours.
