The suspect was arrested on June 1 2017 in a PTT petrol station situated in Chongkaosou village, Sok Raam commune, Siem Reap.
The victim arrived in Siem Reap on May 31 2017 at 6AM by bus from Vietnam. Esin, who has since confessed to the crime, approached her pretending to be a Khmer national and to know several tourist places.
