Jamaican Police spokesman Karl Angell announced at a press conference this evening that: "The pathologist's report states that Mr Woolmer's death was due to asphyxiation as a result of manual strangulation. In these circumstances, the matter of Mr Woolmer's death is now being treated by the Jamaican police as a case of murder."
What kind of cruel and callous World do we live in, where an honourable man can be killed over the simple game of cricket, which lives and breathes as a form of entertainment and enjoyment. It is a sad day for the sport and an even sadder one for the World. One can only hope that some good will come of this, but in reality what good can ever come from something as evil, senseless and wasteful as murder. We can only pray that Bob did not suffer too much and be comforted by the thought that he now is at rest. Taken from the World early, one of cricket's finest will certainly never be forgotten.
You are sadly missed Bob. Let justice now be done.
