Dr Kelly's Final Hours Did
Not Indicate Suicide

The Scoop Editor

In the 48 hours since the death of UK WMD scientist David Kelly several key pieces of evidence concerning his final hours and frame of mind have now come to light. These are extracted from key articles and linked below.
Notably they do not point to a seemingly suicidal or internally tortured end for the scientist who has taken to the grave the truth about his relationship with the UK PM's office and the alleged "sexing up" of Iraqi WMD intelligence.
In the wake of some reports that the death has been "confirmed as suicide" it is important for news consumers to realise that legally neither the police, nor the media, have any power to make such a determination.
The cause of death will ultimately be determined legally by a coroner's inquest and that will probably be several weeks if not months away.
It is also important to realise that while the evidence that has been released about the death is consistent with suicide, it is also consistent with a murder made to look like suicide.
Moreover the alleged method of suicide a self inflicted knife wound to the wrist is 1) a method of suicide extremely seldom used by men, and 2) a method of suicide that is seldom successful as it takes such a long time to die.
Finally it is worth repeating some remarks from
"Why would he commit suicide NOW? And why try to commit suicide using the slowest method possible, out on the open, where he might be seen and stopped, as opposed to renting a motel room with a bed and bathtub? How could Kelly know that, once he was unconscious, a passer by might not spot him and call for an ambulance?"
And on that point, given his importance to the UK Government at this time, and his role in the affair as an alleged leaker of sensitive information (he gave evidence only last Tuesday about the most significant intelligence scandal in recent memory) isn't it also just a little bit odd that Dr David Kelly wasn't under observation by the intelligence services?
Postscript: Since publication another report has come to our attention shedding light on the issue of whether or not Dr Kelly was under observation. <,,30000-1097399,00.html>Sky News reported (CLICK FOR LINK- See 5th To Last Para) , "Mr Mangold also revealed Dr Kelly had been taken to a safe house but 'he hadn't liked that, he wanted to come home.'" Clearly someone considered that Dr Kelly was in danger of being attacked.
