Kenneth Robert McMordie, the man who impersonated the author of Jed McKenna books, passed away on Wednesday the 6th of July 2021 in a Phnom Penh hospital.
He travelled there from the town of Kampot after some illness and after apparently having taken the chloroquine for what he thought was Covid.
It wasn’t, it was thought at first. The death was reported as resulting from cardiovascular disease.
Some expats in Cambodia were apparently aware that Ken bilked people for money. However, I don’t know what other means of parting folks with their cash Kenneth deployed in Cam, so cannot comment on that.
I tried to post on his forum (which I have not visited for over a year). All comments and posts require a moderator’s approval, which means ‘never’, as there is no one to approve them now. The forum participants may never learn about his demise.
I have quite mixed feelings about the news, because I told Kenneth once how I am going to learn about his death, and it proved true to the letter 😦
I don’t know if I will revive the site; I’ve come to greatly dislike the WordPress (un)usability, and other concerns have taken priority in the past few months. But I would like to at least confirm the name of Jed McKenna. Here, nothing new, truly an open secret:
Peder Sweeney, currently known as Peter Johnson, is jed mckenna.
I have traced his life and the life of his family as far back as the birth of his parents, both New Yorkers, like he was for the first few years of his life. The details.. well, IF I revive the site.
Peter Sweeney (Johnson) is Jed McKenna
