A French woman in her mid-twenties who was vacationing with two friends at a tranquil riverside resort in Kampot province was found dead yesterday – naked and bludgeoned on the head – local police said.
In Chiva, deputy police commissioner in Kampot, told the Post that the woman’s body was discovered at about noon floating in the Kampong Bay estuary that runs through the town.
She was found some five kilometres from the Les Manguiers resort, which she and her friends had planned on checking out of yesterday following a week’s holiday.
Found without her clothes, the woman had marks on one wrist and had been bludgeoned on the forehead, according to Chiva, who believes she was murdered. Authorities are investigating, but there are no suspects yet.
