Trabek re-education camp near Phnom Penh, but later disappeared and is assumed to have been executed. According to family members physically present at the time, sometime in April 1978 (exact date can not be ascertained) a Khmer Rouge military truck arrived at the location where Prince Phurissara had been assigned to live. The Khmer Rouge took Prince Phurissara and his wife into the truck and drove away. They were never seen again. It is widely believed they were taken to the area (Odom) where other royal family members were believed executed (murdered). Sihanouk was later to express a fear that Phurissara, who he supposed to have been brutally tortured and killed, along with other members of his family, had been targeted specifically due to Sihanouk's refusal to continue as Head of State.
