Cambóya is a Sector in the city of Santiago de los Caballeros in the province of Santiago of the Dominican Republic. The name "Camboya" is a translation of "Cambodia" in Spanish, as a moniker to the genocide that took place in that country, and how the neighborhood is similar on how deadly it is. Camboya is home to Santiago's most notorious Drug Lords of all time, like "Billy Boy" and "William" as well as his brother "Chuko".
