Jamaica police have scheduled a news conference for later today (Tuesday) in which it is expected they will confirm reports that Bob Woolmer died of natural causes and was not murdered.
The conference will be addressed by police commissioner Lucius Thomas, who will read a statement, outline toxicology results and give details of post-mortem examinations carried out on Woolmer's body.
He will reveal that three independent reviews of the post mortem and pathology reports have all rejected the original findings of Dr Ere Seshaiah which led to the launch of a murder investigation.
The fallout from the embarrassing about-turn by police will rumble on. Already, Mark Shields, the deputy police commissioner who led the case, and Reneto Adams, the senior superintendent, have crossed swords. Adams called for Shields to resign on national TV last week, but Shields fired back demanding that Adams step down for his part in other cases. The pair are old adversaries, stemming from Shields's investigation into a bungled police raid spearheaded by Adams.
