A young British backpacker has been found dead inside a budget hostel in Cambodia alongside one of her best friends.
Natalie Jade Seymour, 22, from Stotfold, Bedfordshire, had been travelling in Asia for at least two months.
She was found dead this morning on a bunk bed at the Monkey Republic guesthouse in Kampot. Over-the-counter medication was found on the floor.
Friend Abbey Gail Aisola, 27, from Winnipeg, Canada, was found dead in the room next door.
Police told local media that the two victims were taken to hospital and were later pronounced dead.
Post mortem examinations are being carried out on the two women.
A worker at the Monkey Republic hotel who answered the phone said today: ‘’I know what you’re calling about but we cannot talk about it. Please send an email.’’
The guest house has yet to respond to requests for comment and the tourist police in Kampot were unavailable for comment.
