News: Young Brit Peter Riley, 25, Dies in SihanoukvilleMay 27, 2015
The young western man found dead outside All Nations Guesthouse at Victory Hill, Sihanoukville yesterday has been named as Peter Michael Riley, a 25 year old British man from St Heliers, Jersey in the UK.
The British Embassy in Phnom Penh have confirmed that a British national died in Sihanoukville and have said they are providing consular assistance to his family.
Mr Riley is believed to have died from a heart attack. He seems to have been on an extended holiday in South East Asia. In April he became an internet sensation when a video of him dancing nude at a Songkran festival in Bangkok Thailand was posted to YouTube and went viral. At that time he was arrested by Thai police and fined 100 baht before being released.
Peter’s friends and family have launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to repatriate his body because he didn’t have any travel insurance. Six hours after being launched, 153 people had collectively donated GBP3835 or over $5000. More money is expected to be raised later this week when a fundraising concert is organised at his favourite bar in St Heliers.
