The Death of David Kelly - Is the reddening a red herring?

In this post I want to briefly flag up another issue where it is possible to question Dr. Hunt's conclusions as to the cause of death.

In his postmortem report Dr. Hunt states the following:

There was extensive reddening around the whole injury complex indicating that they had been inflicted whilst the victim was alive.

It is possible that the wounds were inflicted while the "victim" was alive, as Dr. Hunt contends.

Equally, it is possible that the "victim" had been restrained using the left wrist leading to obvious reddening around the wrist and the wounds were inflicted after death in an area already reddened during life.

Each of the two hypotheses is credible, I suggest.

As an aside, I find it interesting that Dr. Hunt refers to the deceased as the "victim" when, so we are asked to believe, no crime had been committed.

  1. Dr Hunt again seems to be exhibiting his loose use of the English language! It was very much in evidence in his report to the Coroner, something we wouldn't normally see of course. I wonder just how bad his other work has been.
