Jamaican Police seek pathology files in Woolmer case: report


The Jamaican Police have requested a third pathology report on the death of former Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer, the Jamaican Gleaner newspaper quoted a senior police officer saying.

The officer, who did not want to be named, said Woolmer was not murdered. “Certainly, in my view it was not murder,” the officer said. It was also reported that the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) would not make an official comment until after the final toxicology results are in and, more important, the third pathology report has been received.

News broke last month, that Woolmer, who was found unconscious in his Kingston hotel room on March 18, the day after Pakistan were embarrassed by Ireland in a major upset at the World Cup.

A week after, the Jamaican police first reported suspicious, then murdered, but later turned to Scotland Yard for help in the case. Last week, the BBC reported that London’s Metropolitan Police reached the conclusion after studying work by a pathologist from Britain’s Home Office, who flew to Jamaica to probe Woolmer’s death, and disclosed that Woolmer was not murdered, but died of heart failure.

In the Monday Gleaner’s report, Dr Garfield Blake, president of the Jamaica Association of Clinical Pathologists, who earlier criticised Britain pathologist Dr Nat Carey, defended his local colleague Dr Ere Sheshiah, who disclosed Woolmer’s death was due to “asphyxiation as a result of manual strangulation” “The best of persons in any field can make an error,” Blake said.
