The pathologist who performed the autopsy on Dr David Kelly has said his death was a ‘textbook case’ of suicide.
Nicholas Hunt said he found no signs of murder on the former weapons inspector after an eight-hour examination.
The Home Office scientist also said he was horrified at the way the Labour government treated Dr Kelly, 59, who was identified as the source of a BBC story claiming the Government ‘sexed up’ its now notorious dossier on Iraq’s supposed weapons of mass destruction.
Mr Hunt said he would welcome a full inquest into Dr Kelly’s death, called for by campaigners who question the suicide verdict recorded in the controversial Hutton Inquiry.
He told the Sunday Times: ‘I felt very, very sorry for David Kelly and the way he had been treated by the Government… I had every reason to look for something untoward and would dearly love to have found something.
‘It was an absolute classic case of self-inflicted injury. You could illustrate a textbook with it.
