Khmer guy in the article comments is confused why they would pixelate the dead bodies... why can’t they just let us have a look?

Named as 27 year old Canadian named Abby Gail Amisola and a 22 year old Brit named Natalie Jade Seymour at Monkey Republic guesthouse in Kampot.

All signs are pointed to an OD.

The presence of bunk beds leads me to believe it's a hostel, and there aren't many hostels in that neighborhood. The bed and ladder and curtains and light fixture and wall paint look similar to online photos of Monkey Republic, though I can't find a Monkey Republic photo of the purple bed in the photos.

Maybe someone should ask on the Kampot Noticeboard if two Money Republic guests died. I'm sure they'll allow a free discussion of that.

From Kampot Noticeboard

Sad case of possible overdose.
Two Cambodian young women, one Briton and one Canadian, have been sleeping in a "Money Republic" guesthouse, causing shock. The incident took place in the morning of November 14, 2017, at the forefront of the brand at 1 May Village, Sangkat Kampong Kandal, Kampot city, Kampot province.
The two victims were named AMISOLA ABBEY GAIL, born September 9, 1990, holding Canadian Passport No. HH472236 and SEYMOUR NATALIE JADE Date of Birth 9.6.1995 British Passport Holders No. 5029790.
According to sources, the two women were taken to Kampot provincial hospital to recover, but they had died in a guesthouse. Residents near the scene suspected they were using over-the-counter drugs to death. However, experts still do not dare to confirm yet, waiting for a forensic examination.


The post then shows 2 pics of the deceased with this link:

Fresh news now report there was prescription medicine all over the floor.

Kampot (FN), Nov 14 - A British and a Canadian young women were found dead in "Money Republic" Guesthouse in Kampot Province for no apparent reason at 4:30 am on Tuesday.

The local authorities said the two victims were taken to a medical center in Kampot province, but were already found dead in the Guesthouse.

The first victim was identified as Amisola Abbey Gail, Canadian, born in 1990, and the second one was Seymour Natalie, British national born in 1995.

The villagers living nearby suspected that the two young women died from excessive use of medicinal pills as the police found scattered drugs all over the floor in their room.

The death of the two victims is currently under forensic examination and research.

It almost sounds more like a joint suicide than an OD, unless they were taking drugs that were stronger than they thought or tainted; it could be bad drugs.

The noticeboard is not going to like this, either way...

What sounds like a joint suicide? Was there a suicide note? That's dumb speculation. "Oh, two friends died at the same time, it must be suicide."

They overdosed. It happens to Westerners all the time in Cambodia, there's no suggestion in the reports it was intentional.

It's possible but unlikely. It's also not difficult to die on benzo's (valium, xanax, take your pick) and alcohol if you have a low tolerance to both, choking on your own vomit and what not. But two in one night, that's highly unlikely, probably another case of sampling the local heroin and not realising how pure it is here.

I have a theory about the heroin overdoses here, and especially why there are often Brits involved. I don't buy the line that they are all sold it as coke, anyone who has done coke, knows that isn't coke.

Recreational heroin users in the UK rarely inject, they usually smoke it off of foil (chasing the dragon) as heroin in the UK is base heroin (browns) from Afghanistan, it's not effective when snorted. The heroin here is China white, it's more refined and can only easily be snorted or injected. I think the Brits buy it, plan on smoking it. Then when that doesn't work they decide to snort it but have no direct reference point for snorting heroin other than cocaine, so they start with what would be considered a very small line of coke, and that's more than enough to cause an OD with pure heroin and no tolerance.

That's my take too.

Yea, I was completely speculating and thinking out loud. I understand that Westerners OD here, but two at the same time is very rare. The last time it was two at the same time that I can remember were the two North Korean doctors that died from alcohol poisoning, and everyone certainly found that suspicious. What caught my eye here was the reference to prescription drugs scattered around.

Starkmonster's inputs are certainly more likely, and that's good background info I had no idea about.

Two thirtysomething British men died of "heart attacks" last year after going out to bars in Kampot:

Also last year, Martin Hale died and his buddy Dean McWilliams was taken to Calmette unconscious but survived:

And then in older news, pre-dating the North Koreans doctors, we have this:

The double death is not so unusual.
