Murder, Money, Pesticide In Drink
Two Barbados forensic scientists have testified that they found the deadly poison cypermethrin in the body of Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer. Patrick Best and Cheryl Corbin told the inquest that they found the pesticide when they examined Woolmer’s body and stomach contents. Jamaican Government pathologist Ere Sheshiah testified that a small broken bone in Woolmer’s neck indicated manual strangulation, but his findings have been challenged by others.
Another witness, a maid at the hotel where Woolmer died, testified that she saw Bob Woolmer checking a thick coil of US money in front of an Indian man in a suit.
At first, the Jamaican police said they were treating Woolmer’s death as a murder, then they said he died of “natural causes”.
I’m still unable to get past the pesticide in Woolmer’s body and in the nightcap on the dresser. Doesn’t sound too “natural” to me.
The inquest is continuing in Jamaica.
