A Joint Task Force has been established with Prey Veng Police Command to investigate the horrific rape and murder of a little 5yr old girl. At about 10am on the 17th of April , little Chan Sreydat, 5 years old, left her home with her 2 sisters to walk approximately 150 meters to their local Wat to enjoy the final day of partying during Khmer New Year unfortunately she did not make it. Chan Sreydat became separated from her sisters. At about 1130 her sisters returned home hoping to find their younger sister at home. Upon realising that she was not home family and friends commenced to search for the child. At about 1.30pm the body of Chan Sreydat was found floating in a pond on the grounds of the wat. She had been brutally raped and murdered. Local police attended and the CPU notified. Evidence was found in a nearby crypt that suggested the child had been raped and killed before being taken to the pond where she was located. This crime has been particularly brutal in its nature and the CPU and Prey Veng Police Command will use all possible resources to apprehend the offender. CPU is appealing for any person that saw Chan Sreydat on the morning of the 17th of April in the vicinity of Wat Sithearam to contact them of Prey Veng CID. Task Force members will not rest until you have been arrested. RIP little one another angel taken to soon.
