Bob Woolmer - Was It Murder!

(BBC Online)
Doubts have been cast into the handling of this investigation and some are begining to wonder if he was murdered at all - The broken bone in his neck could be due to the handling of his body by police for example!
It would be made easier of course if he had a second autopsy, but that apparently isn't going to happen, but it seems that his body has already been embalmed.
All in all there is a whiff of incompetence into how this has been handled and if I were a member of his family I would find it heartbreaking and distressing to think it was a heart attack, then murder, then to cast doubt on that again. I would also be extremely angry with the police handling this, so God knows how his family are feeling right now

Smacks very much of the Di Coverup. Same modus operandi - Express Embalm etc.

Well you and I are going to disagree on this as I don't think there is a cover-up in either case. There are two types of theory with these sort of matters. The conspiracy theory and the cock-up theory, I am erring towards the latter with this

It should be "Was it murder?" not "Was it murder!"

Going to an ex poly is no excuse for bad grammar.

Thanks for that. What would we do without people like you?

Since it is reported that Woolmer had a bottle of whiskey, my theory is that he may have died from a combination of acute alcohol poisoning, diabetes, and a loss of consciousness causing a fall.

I know this is a bit of a long shot, given that we (the public) don't know his blood alcohol and glucose levels, but it would not surprise me.

Frankly, he had the physical look of a boozer, and it is well known that long term drinkers may have liver damage that reduces their ability to deal with alcohol. Add to that his diabetes, which shows that he had metabolic problems, and what more do you need.

In any case, drinking a whoe bottle of whiskey alone (if this is in fact what he did) is enough to cause death alone.

I am very willing to be proved completely wrong, but so far no proof has been made public.

None of the murder theories really add up.
