Nate Thayer: Journalist Who Chased Stories Across the Jungles of Southeast Asia

From a Washington Post obit by Brian Murphy headlined “Nate Thayer, journalist who landed Pol Pot interview, dies at 62”:

Nate Thayer, an American journalist who chased stories of conflict across the jungles of Southeast Asia and was the last Western correspondent to interview the Khmer Rouge’s genocidal leader Pol Pot, has died in Falmouth, Mass.

Robert Thayer said his brother’s body was found Jan. 3, but it was not immediately clear when he died. Mr. Thayer wrote last year that he was in declining health, including developing sepsis after foot surgery and was told by doctors he “will never walk again.”
