Celebrities Who Were Murdered
Academy Award winner, Haing S. Ngor was slain outside his home by a local street gang. The Cambodian actor, who was an obstetrician in his native country and had been tortured by the Khmer Rouge, parked his Mercedes when three members of the Asian American gang, the Oriental Lazy Boyz, shot him in a botched robbery. Conspiracy theorists contend Haing was murdered by the Cambodian government or Pol Pot supporters in retaliation for his role in the film, THE KILLING FIELDS, which depicted the Khmer Rouge regime that killed 1.7 million.
