Bob Woolmer Was Strangled With A Towel

The killer or killers of cricket coach Bob Woolmer used a twisted towel to throttle him. //That perhaps explains the absence of any marks on his neck, newspaper reports from Jamaica, West Indies say.

Woolmer, reputed for introducing many modern techniques in coaching, was found unconscious in his hotel room in Jamaica, West Indies on March 17, less than 24 hours after Pakistan was knocked out of the World Cup by debutants Ireland. He was declared dead at the hospital.

After preliminary investigations the Jamaican police had announced it was a case of murder, though they would not go into any details.

Now a local newspaper, The Sun, has claimed that Woolmer was possibly strangulated with a towel, or ligature. It speculated it was perhaps a mafia-style killing aimed at preventing the coach from blowing the whistle on match-fixing.

The tabloid quoted Deputy Commissioner in Jamaica Police Mark Shields in its support. “If it is some form of manual strangulation and there are no physical marks, there may have been something between the hands of the assailant and the neck. That's as far as I will go," Shields has said. He also confirmed that towels were found in the room.

Forensic pathologist Ere Seshaiah, who incidentally hails from the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, said in his report that Woolmer had died of "asphyxia caused by manual strangulation".

Shields said the chambermaid who discovered Woolmer's naked body in a pool of his own vomit at Kingston Pegasus hotel was traumatized.

Meanwhile the police have also said that they planned to collect the DNA samples of every person in the 300-room hotel because it was "highly likely" the killer left behind his DNA in Woolmer’s room.

The deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is the material inside the nucleus of cells that carries genetic information. It is seen as a valuable tool in crime detection these days. It could be traced from bl ood, semen, hair, nails, teeth and the like.

Matching DNA from hotel guests to a sample from the room could give police the identity of the killer, Shields said.
