Bob Woolmer, Murdered to death ?

http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/images/2007/03/march/mb/BOB_-thumb.jpgOne after another shock, as latest reports coming form West Indies is that coach Bob Woolmer did not die a natural death.

Right now there is no info is pointing towards his murdered but the security of Pakistani team has been tightened considerably. We pray that it turns out to be a natural one as everyone, especially our nation has had enough of shocks now.

Considering what happened to Hansi Cronje is it that the match fixing gang is behind this?. According to Indian media Bob was receiving threats from someone.

    It’s all speculation right now. Toxicology reports might tell us if there were poisons or drugs involved, but even after all the tests we might not ever know what actually happened to Bob. Pakistan is already associated with everything negative in the world. We certainly don’t want us Pakistani to be helping such cause. The team didn’t win, but that doesn’t mean they murdered the coach or are in some way involved. Give them the benefit of doubt this time guys. The players didn’t need to fix any matches this time, because they were all going to make tons of money anyways as Musharraf had promised if they won. Unlike Paki way of life of being in everyone’s business all the time Bob was not Paki. Usually in western culture people like having their space and for that reason I don’t think the coach or players had to know where everyone was at 8 in the morning when they have just lost the biggest series. I think everyone was worried for themselves for what they have to face back at home. You all know how we treat our team when they come home losers right. We don’t respect them we don’t pay them enough then we expect so much. People do die for natural causes guys. Bob did have other illnesses and maybe died a natural death. So let it rest for now.

    You guys are all pathetic. I bet if this had happened with another team no one would have even cared so much. Since its Pakistan its obvious things have to be negative. There has to be conspiracy and murder theories involved. Guys just relax and let the story play on before making up your minds. Geo personnel can’t tell what they hear and report. It could say “Was Bob Murdered”, but Geo would thing “Bob was Murdered”. There are two different issues here. You guys really want to hear some conspiracy theories then look no further than any Indian media or news channel. I watch and read multiple news channels and websites, but nowhere have I read that Bob was murdered. It’s all speculation right now. Toxicology reports might tell us if there were poisons or drugs involved, but even after all the tests we might not ever know what actually happened to Bob. Pakistan is already associated with everything negative in the world. We certainly don’t want us Pakistani to be helping such cause.

    There is no need to jump to conclusions as yet but what do you say about this statement issued most recently:

    “A bone in the neck, near the glands, was broken, and this suggests that somebody might have put some pressure on it. We are now treating this as a homicide.” – The Gleaner quoted an unnamed senior police officer on the Bob Woolmer investigation as saying.

    And what about the fact that Scotland yard has confirmed that two detectives from London’s police service will go to Jamiaca to help in the investigation?

    Read yourself.

    Let us consider this piece of information based upon information that is worth reading.

    While I was expecting Zainub to jump in with some info, having an excellent blog of her own, either she is busy doing her own investigation or busy wither other work. Jus kidding.

    Here is the summary :

    He had scratch marks on his neck suggesting there might have been a scuffle before his death.

    However, police said Woolmer did not die of strangulation. The general belief is that Woolmer was poisoned as his body had turned blue.

    Woolmer’s wife Gill has confirmed that her husband would not drink, especially under stress. She claims that Woolmer was aware of his health problems and would not commit such blunders.

    One of the last e-mails that Bob Woolmer wrote is to the publishers of his forthcoming book on coaching which proves that Woolmer is unlikely to have committed suicide as he says “We will first play our game against Zimbabwe and then fly back to Pakistan”

    Woolmer’s wife had also received an e-mail saying how depressed he was after Pakistan’s loss to Ireland.

    The deputy commissioner of the Jamaican police, Mark Shields, said this might now be a hunt for more than one killer, and urged the perpetrators to hand themselves in.

    “Bob was a large man. It would have taken some significant force to subdue him,” he said, adding that police were ruling nothing out and had “lots of lines of inquiry”.

    “I have to say at this stage that it looks as if it may be somebody who’s somehow linked to him, because clearly he let somebody into his hotel room and it may be that he knew who that person was,” Mr Shields told the BBC.

    inzimam multani and mushtaq chohta are under investigation by the police –

    police want an undertaking from Pakistan Govt that at any stage if any of the tour members are required the extradiction will be swift – without that assurance passports will not be returned to team –

    seems like Raiwind lobby was eager and determined to make extra cash for their vested interest at the national level. Got tempted to make it easy way through very own team members and Poor non-muslim was the hurdle thus eliminated.

    Down to Mullayat, Down to Mullayat, Down to Mullayat – may the hell break lose on raiwind before it break lose on non believers

    @ALKHAN – check out how much a BENTLEY COST, and what is cost to become a Bahria TOWN stake holder cum Director –

    Try find out the family back ground of Inzimam family and multiplied prosperity gained in the captaincy years – compared to whole career of Inzimam.

    even imran khan the ONE who predicted that Inzimam WILL be captain of Pakistan one day is vocal about the CAPTAIN. – Waseem Akram the Notorious is himself in an awe on the series of events……….. pathetic yes ofcourse highly pathetic….

    The Mullayat of Cricketers…. Munafiq dar munafiq

    Now it does not matter Mr.Woolmer is dead. They will find it sooner or later who commited the crime, but its so sad to see our Team/manager/Captain etc are trying to Rush out of there if some thing fishy is going to happen with them.
    Why Inzamam or Team Manager could not have stayed there to get his body transported to his Native land.Thats how we behave for the person who was like a father figure to the team. SHAME on All of them that they left his body there with out comming to any conclusion.
