The death of David Kelly - Nicholas Hunt's evidence doesn't add up

Have you noticed how Nicholas Hunt's evidence doesn't add up?

In his postmortem report of 25th July 2003, Post mortem examination report, Nicholas Hunt gives the following causes of death:

la. Haemorrhage
lb. Incised Wounds to the Left Wrist
2. Co-proxamol ingestion and coronary artery atherosclerosis

It is well known that a number of doctors have disputed whether or not it is possible to bleed to death from transection of the ulnar artery.

But if you are to believe Dr. Hunt, you have to conclude that David Kelly bled to death in "minutes" from transection of the ulnar artery and surrounding tissue.

Point 9 of his conclusions (on page 14 of the postmortem report) reads:

9 Many of the injuries over the left wrist show evidence of a well-developed vital reaction suggesting that they have been inflicted over a reasonable period of time (minutes rather than seconds or hours) before death.

Take a moment to consider the implications of that assertion.

"Minutes" before death Dr. Hunt asks us to believe that David Kelly was still cutting his wrist!

If David Kelly was doing that there is only one plausible explanation - that the wrist wasn't bleeding enough.

But if the wrist wasn't bleeding enough when those cuts were made "minutes" before death, Dr. Hunt asks us to believe that David Kelly died of haemorrhage over "minutes".

I'm sorry, I just don't believe what Dr. Hunt is asking us to accept.

  1. Andrew, a blog on a very recent (Nov 2010) German newspaper article is the result of a Swiss toxicologist analysing the drug levels in the body of the NOrth German politician Uwe Barschel who , the story goes, committed suicide in his bath in GENEVA IN 1987.
    However, the evidence now points to Barschel having been suicided, with tablets inserted into his stomach by tube and, as an insurance measure against him be stomach pumped, rectally too. The pharmacokinetics were, as with the Kelly case, all wrong.
    The key findings are
    1. it is certain that the deadly dosage of cyclobarbital was applied later than other strongly sedative drugs, most likely at a stage of lost capability to act,

    2. it is virtually certain that the strong hypnotic Noludar was applied rectally, briefly before death occurred, which is incompatible with the assumption of…suicide,

    3. because of the complexity of the murderous event it has to be assumed that this was the work of a team of professionals, as opposed to a single person.
