Anything suspicious about Bob Woolmer's death?
Kingston - A former Pakistan cricketer has speculated that his country's coach, Bob Woolmer, who died in his hotel room on Sunday, could have been killed by gambling interests.
Former Pakistan fast-bowler Sarfraz Nawaz said he suspected Woolmer had been murdered.
Nawaz said: "Woolmer's death has some connection with the match-fixing mafia.
"I've been saying for days that Woolmer's death is not natural- it's murder."
Jamaica police, however, said there had been no evidence that it had been murder.
Woolmer, who was 58 and lived in South Africa, was found unconscious in his Kingston hotel room on Sunday morning and was pronounced dead after being transferred to a hospital.
The previous day, Pakistan had been stunned by Ireland in a St Patrick's Day victory that assured Pakistan's early departure from the World Cup, which is being played in the Caribbean.
A 10-man forensics team was working in the 12th-floor room where Woolmer died.
'He was perfectly fit'
Woolmer's wife, Gill, was interviewed on Indian television and discounted conspiracy theories.
She confirmed her husband had Type 2 diabetes, but said he had not been on prescribed medication for it, but had been on prescribed anti-inflammation drugs.
She said that following the loss to Ireland, "he e-mailed me the following morning.
"He mentioned that he was really depressed and could not believe how this could have happened.
"The Pakistani team's poor performance affected him, as any other big tournament that he lost as a coach.
"He believed that what happened, happened. One has to move on."
She told the Cape Argus newspaper that he was healthy and regularly exercised.
"There was nothing wrong with him - he was perfectly fit," said Gill.
Deputy police commissioner Mark Shields said in Kingston earlier: "There's no evidence it's a homicide, but we're waiting for further information from the pathologist before make any more statements.
"We have sufficient information to continue a full investigation into Woolmer's death, which we are now treating as suspicious."
The obvious diagnosis is heart attack, second choice stroke. Too many factors tie together to make the death in the least suspicious.
On 18 March 2007 Bob Woolmer was found unconscious in his hotel room in Kingston, Jamaica. He was taken to the nearby University Hospital but it was later confirmed that he had died. A post mortem will be carried out as required by Jamaican law. Pervez Mir, the Pakistan team media manager said that Woolmer had suffered from an un-named medical condition although Naseem Ashraf, the Chairman of the PCB, later said that Woolmer had complained of breathing difficulties before the team left for the World Cup, and also revealed that he had been a diabetic. His son was subsequently reported as saying that Woolmer may have died as a result of stress brought on by his job or from a heart attack.
