SUICIDE – they cried!!!

By Masterwordsmith

Let's face it. Each one of us probably has an evil streak lurking within us, much as we may fail to mask it. 

Perhaps that is why many are so fascinated with the murder genre that allows them to understand characters, solve puzzles or mysteries with much thrill and action. At the end of a tale, justice is served after the mystery is solved. However, in Malaysia, true life drama has a different turn when a MURDER they wrote, results in a cry of "SUICIDE" – until an independent renowned Thai pathologist gave her professional opinion about the tragic 'death' of Teoh Beng Hock. 

The Malaysian Insider reported today at THIS LINK:

Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand told the Coroner’s Court this morning that there was an 80 per cent probability that Teoh Beng Hock’s death was a homicide and not suicide, and suggested that some of his injuries were sustained before his fatal fall.
She said that Teoh’s injuries showed he could have been strangled and that he sustained anal penetration before he fell to his death earlier this year.
The stunning testimony made by the pathologist, who gained prominence from her work on identifying Tsunami victims and in the recent death of Hollywood star David Carradine, appeared to suggest Teoh was assaulted before his death.
Using a graphics presentation, she told the court that not all the injuries sustained by Teoh were consistent with that of a fall.
The skull fracture on Teoh’s head, she said, was not typical of an injury from a fall, but more compatible from blunt force applied directly to the skull.
She also noted round marks on Teoh’s neck which could mean “manual strangulation” with fingers.
