Fingerprint doubt over UK scientist’s ‘suicide’

From the British newspaper The Mirror:

Newly released evidence adds to the theory that MoD scientist Dr David Kelly was murdered and did not commit suicide, an MP has claimed. Norman Baker revealed that the penknife Dr Kelly apparently used to slash his wrist did not carry his own fingerprints.

Lib Dem Mr Baker said: “The angle you pick up a knife to kill yourself means there would be fingerprints.

“Someone who wanted to kill themselves wouldn’t go to the lengths of wiping the knife clean of fingerprints.

UN weapons inspector Dr Kelly, 59, was found dead near his Oxfordshire home in 2003, days after he was named as the source of a BBC story that claimed the British government had “sexed up” a dossier on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction.
