A journalist, film maker and former member of a British Army anti-terrorist squad, who went missing in Cambodia ten weeks ago, has been found dead near the Gate of Death at the country's ancient Angkor Wat.

The body of 57-year-old Canadian David Walker was discovered outside the temple by a passer-by who alerted police.
Although it has been impossible to tell from the state of the body exactly how David Walker died, a statement made on behalf of the family clearly implied he was murdered and called on whoever was responsible for his death be brought to justice.

Officials at the Australian Embassy, who represent Canadian interests in Cambodia, have been informed as have the Australian Federal as has the Canadian Embassy in Bangkok.
An Australian Federal Police officer is going to the scene to assist the Cambodian National Police and a pathologist is being called from Bangkok in nearby Thailand.
Walker's body was found near the east gate, known both as the 'Gate of Death' and Victory Gate, shortly after dawn.
The ancient Khmer temple Angkor Wat is Cambodia's biggest tourist attraction and was the major location for the Angela Jolie film 'Tomb Raiders'.

Body found in a very public place, but appears to have been dead some weeks..

Obvious dumping after the fact.

I read elsewhere that David was there to research material for a film about the Khmer Rouge era.
Still a very sensitive topic.
