Postmortem of Mr. Robert Woolmer



THURSDAY, March 22, 2007

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen of the local and international media.

Consistent with our approach from the time Pakistani Cricket Coach, Mr. Robert Woolmer was found in his hotel room on Sunday, March 18, the Jamaica Constabulary Force has updated the media on all developments concerning our investigations of this case.

The Jamaican Police are now in possession of the official post mortem report from the Government pathologist who conducted the autopsy on the late Mr. Woolmer.

The pathologist report states that Mr. Woolmer’s death was due to asphyxia as a result of manual strangulation. In these circumstances, the matter of Mr. Robert Woolmer’s death is now being treated by the Jamaica Police as a case of murder.

Steps are being taken to conclude these investigations which include collecting statements from all persons who in the opinion of the Police can be of assistance to these investigations.

In due course further announcements will be made as to the progress of our investigations.

The JCF is making an appeal to anyone who may have information that would help us to identify Bob Woolmer’s killer or killers to come forward in order that his wife, Gill and his family can begin the process of healing.

It is our belief that those associated with or having access to Mr. Woolmer may have vital information that would assist this inquiry. We appeal to these individuals to come forward now to assist us with our investigations.

Our condolences go out to Gill, Bob’s widow and their sons, family members, friends and members of the Pakistan team.



There is an on going murder investigation into the death of Mr. Robert Woolmer, coach of the Pakistan Cricket team. As a direct result, the security arrangements at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel will be part of that investigation. It is therefore inappropriate to give details of security arrangements.

However, security at official hotels connected with the ICC CWC 2007 is being continuously assessed and reviewed through a process supported by the intelligence community. We maintain appropriate levels of security around teams, officials, media and sponsors.

Since the death of Mr. Woolmer, on Sunday, March 18, we have increased uniformed security presence at the hotel with a focus mainly on control.
