Pakistani Cricket Coach (Bob Woolmer) was Strangled!

A murder inquiry is under way after it was confirmed that Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer was strangled.

A post-mortem examination showed his death was caused by asphyxia as a result of manual strangulation, Jamaican police said.
The death sparked speculation that it was linked to alleged corruption in the sport.

Woolmer, 58, was found unconscious by staff at the Pegasus Hotel in Kingston at around 10.45am on Sunday, the day after Pakistan's shock World Cup defeat to cricketing minnows Ireland.

It is understood the coach was found in the bathroom area. Despite numerous attempts to revive him on the way to hospital, he later died.

Jamaica's deputy police commissioner Mark Shields said police were ruling nothing out in their inquiries, including the possibility that more than one person had been involved in Woolmer's murder.

He said: "It would take some force, because Bob was a large man, It would have taken some significant force to subdue him, but of course at this stage we do not know how many people were in the room at the time. It could be one or more people involved in this murder."

Mr Shields confirmed Woolmer had shown no signs of life when he was found in his hotel room and said there had been no signs of a struggle.
He said police had delayed announcing Woolmer had been murdered until the results of the pathologist's report was known.

He said: "In these particular circumstances we had to make sure because there were no visible external signs (of his murder). Not until the report was concluded were we able to draw conclusions."
