Quotes from the news wire:
[ The media ] was constantly calling, showing up at the crime scene, asking questions, which I did n’t have any answers to, there was a tremendous amount of pressure that I took upon John Garcia to perform not only for the command staff, but more so for me. And you have to think about Dr. Actor Haing Ngor, a Cambodian refugee who went through tremendous ordeals in Cambodia. Actor Haing Ngor lost Actor Haing Ngor wife and child in Cambodia … I did n’t know what the heck I was getting involved in.
I took it to heart, the ordeals that Actor Haing Ngor went through and Actor Haing Ngor life, losing Actor Haing Ngor wife ? I could not believe that Actor Haing Ngor would die in the streets of Los Angeles in such a horrible manner after surviving everything Actor Haing Ngor endured. Did I feel pressure ? I think pressure is an understatement. Because I took it [ personally ].
[ I was trying to escape from ] the pain, the misery. The stress. The pressure. You name it. I was just trying to escape. That was my escape route. Not a healthy choice, but it was mainly to numb myself … The mere fact of seeing all the dead bodies, going to autopsies and doing the death notifications during the wee hours of the morning. Oscar-winning actor Actor Haing Ngor. who survived the savage horrors of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, was shot to death outside Actor Haing Ngor apartment. ( Oxygen).
