Woolmer inquest opens in JamaicaNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:21 am ICT by admin
The coach was found unconscious in his hotel room on March 18, a day after Pakistan was eliminated from the World Cup, despite being tipped to win.
According to The Sun, more than 50 people are expected to testify at the inquest, which will be held in a conference centre and could last for up to two months.
A chambermaid found Woolmer dead at the Pegasus Hotel in Kingston.
A first post-mortem examination proved “inconclusive” and Jamaican police announced they were treating the coach’s death as “suspicious”.
A few days after Woolmer’s death police said that he had been strangled.
A worldwide murder hunt was launched, but several months later it was announced that Jamaican officers had closed their murder investigation following opinions from three independent pathologists from Britain, South Africa and Canada and reviewing a toxicology report.
It now falls to the Jamaican coroner to establish the official cause of death. (ANI)
