Phnom Penh : A male Caucasian foreigner fell 5 floors down the escalator well of the Soriya Shopping Mall to his immediate death, creating an uproar at 6:30 pm of the 20th of November, 2012, in Psar Tmey 1 Commune, Daunh Penh District.

The body of the man has not yet been identified, but he was attired in camouflage shorts ខោទាហានជើងខ្លី and a red sleeveless t-shirt អាវយឺតពណ៌ក្រហមវៀលក្លៀក ... presently police have cordoned off the area with yellow tape while they conduct an investigation of the body to determine whether his death was a suicide or an accident ជាការធ្វើអត្តឃាត ឬធ្លាក់ដោយការធ្វេសប្រហែស.

For further details, stay tuned to the Koh Santepheap Newspaper and the Voice of the Koh Santepheap, radio FM 87.75 Phnom Penh and radio FM 87.5 Battambang Province.

I can't see how. There really isn't much of a reason for a foreigner to be up on the 5th floor anyway. Roller skating?

But it's also not an expected place for suicide jump, because there's a good chance of not dying from that height. It really has to be a swan dive.

Lastly, it's a totally selfish dick move to jump from there because you could easily land on someone.

He wasn't dressed like Ian, so I think he's in the clear.

This is a very 'Pattaya expat' way to go.

I guess as more Pattaya types more here, we'll be seeing more unfortunate incidents of this nature.

Middle aged dude in a red wifebeater and camo shorts.

Straight from Pattaya expat central casting.

Plus the grey hair very definitely confirms it is not Ian. Thank Christ.

To be honest, they'd be doing exactly the same if it was a fellow Khmer on the deck.
