No hard evidence that Woolmer was strangulated


The two Pakistani investigators, who travelled to Jamaica to assist the probe into Bob Woolmer’s death, have told the Interior Ministry that there is still no hard evidence that the coach was murdered.

According to sources, the two detectives - Mir Zubair and Syed Kaleem Imam - have informed the Interior Ministry in a 40-page report that Jamaican authorities are yet to find any conclusive evidence that could prove that Woolmer was strangled. They submitted the report to Interior Secretary Syed Kamal Shah in Islamabad on Saturday.

Woolmer, 58, was found unconscious in his hotel room in Kingston on March 18 and was later pronounced at a local hospital there, just hours after his Pakistan team lost to underdogs Ireland in a World Cup game and got knocked out of the event in the Caribbean.

Jamaican authorities later announced that Woolmer was murdered on the basis of an autopsy report that said that the Englishman died of manual strangulation.

Since then there have been several conspiracy theories but nothing concrete has been announced by the Jamaican Police on the case.

Mir Zubair, who was also the chief investigator in the 2002 murder case of US journalist Daniel Pearl in Karachi, said he and fellow investigator Kaleem Imam had based their report on whatever they had seen and been briefed in Kingston by the Jamaican authorities. Zubair and Imam had gone to Kingston on April 10 to assist the murder investigations.
