A Jamaican analyst said genetic evidence found in a hotel room where Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer was discovered unconscious matched the coach's DNA profile. Woolmer (58) was found on the floor of his room's bathroom on March 18, a day after Pakistan was eliminated from the Cricket World Cup.
The Jamaican government pathologist who performed an autopsy on Bob Woolmer defended his ruling that the Pakistan cricket coach was the victim of foul play in a testy exchange on Monday with an attorney representing the sport's governing body.
Jamaican police investigating the killing of Pakistan's coach at the Cricket World Cup have received results of toxicology tests but released no information about the findings on Saturday. ''We have received the toxicology report but we're not going to go public with it right now,'' Deputy Police Commissioner Mark Shields told reporters.
Two Pakistani detectives are helping investigate the mysterious murder of the country's World Cup cricket coach after Jamaican police failed to make a breakthrough more than three weeks later. The investigators arrived in Kingston on Monday to help solve the murder of Bob Woolmer.
Pakistan's cricket coach Bob Woolmer was strangled in his hotel room after the team's shocking World Cup loss to Ireland and police are investigating it as murder. ''The official report from the pathologist states that Mr Woolmer's death was due to asphyxia as a result of manual strangulation,'' said police commissioner Lucius Thomas said in a statement.
