BANGKOK, May 2 – A renowned Canadian journalist who was reported missing since Feb 14, was finally found yesterday – dead at the ruins of the historic Angkor Wat temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The body of Dave Walker, 57, was reportedly discovered by a Cambodian child, following which the police there secured the area, pending further investigations. He disappeared from his residence “under very disturbing circumstances” in Siem Reap on Feb 14, according to a statement by his family, released by the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Thailand (FCCT). According to FCCT, Walker, who lived and worked in Bangkok for many years, was a popular member of the journalist fraternity in Southeast Asia.

Cambodian law enforcement officials from the Siem Reap provincial immigration police said initial investigations revealed the journalist had died several weeks ago. Walker’s family has urged the Cambodian authorities to continue their efforts to bring those responsible for his “senseless death” to justice. “He had devoted his life to bring justice to those responsible for the deaths of more than two million Cambodians in the 30 years he worked and lived in the country. “The journalist lived a remarkable life and was loved by thousands worldwide. We want to thank the Cambodian people for the love they had shown Dave. “Many thousands of Cambodians, like Dave, died under senseless and tragic circumstances,” it said.
