I read in the Express that apparently, the pathologist (Dr Valerie Alexandrov ) who performed the first autopsy is 1000% sure that Daniel died of drowning and clearly stated that the body did not have any signs of violence. He also explained that in case of strangulation there are obvious signs in the neck and eyes and he made sure to have other pathologists with him during the autopsy because of the high profile nature of the case. He also said Daniel was alive while in the water.
He also said that he worked as a forensic pathologist in the United States, Russia and Germany and that his creditability (40 years of experience) is even accepted by the United Nations when he was involved in genocide cases.
HOWEVER, the third autopsy coming from Dr James Gill from the US gave a preliminary cause as "homicidal asphyxia" to Attorney General Anand Ramlogan.
This is getting more and more confusing as the time goes by...
Well, the new pathologist is reporting he was murdered so it seems like there is no doubt and now the police will have to classify the murder however it concerns me due to the fact that so many people "handled" the body if they do find the person who killed the boy, he may get a defense attorney that will request a mistrial.
Comments: To me, whether it was death by drowning or strangulation, it was still a MURDER! The boy was taken and killed! That is murder!
It seems like the police officer that is being questioned is saying that he has nothing to do with the death of Daniel and that he is just being used as a scapegoat for political purposes. Do you all agree?
It seems like this case has fallen through the cracks and maybe we will never know exactly what happened to Daniel.
The grandparents and family are asking the prime minister for foreign intervention on this case, I'm not sure if that's something that the PM should consider because then we will have to request the same thing for each unsolved case in the country, no?
Wow I didn't think the government will do it but I just found out that the government is bringing the FBI to investigate the case but what's going on? (Daniel wasn't a US citizen). They will do the same for each unsolved case in the country or is it because our PM is emotionally involved in this case?
I was reading in the news that apparently, little Daniel did not drown in the river where he was found. His body was too "clean" which is not consistent with a child falling into a river and then being swept for miles. So it seems to me that he was killed in another location and then his body thrown in the river.
