Teoh inquest Day 8: Pathologist says Teoh may have committed suicide

SHAH ALAM: There is a possibility that political aide Teoh Beng Hock committed suicide by jumping off a high place, an inquest into his death was told Friday. (Read here).

Dr Khairul Azman Ibrahim, 51, senior medical consultant at the Forensics Department, Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang, said his finding was based on the absence of any signs of a struggle near the window where Teoh was believed to have fallen from the 14th floor office of the Malaysian AntiCorruption Commission (MACC) at Plaza Masalam here on July 16.

"There was no blood stain, smashed glass or any items scattered near the window and an MACC pen, which was in Teoh's pocket, was still there.

"The DNA test also found no DNA traces from the MACC officers, and the injuries (on Teoh's body) did not show any signs of a struggle and were consistent with a fall, " he said when questioned by government-appointed lawyer Tan Hock Chuan who is assisting in the inquest.

Teoh, 30, who was political secretary to Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah, was found dead on July 16 on the fifth floor corridor of Plaza Masalam, after giving a statement in an investigation into alleged abuse of state government funds. -

Hmmm suicide? Kind of hard to believe.

So he was sleepy, opened the window, which was the height of his chest, stood on the window sill & jumped down.

Naah someone pointed a gun on his head and asked him to jump.

That would be more believable.

Hey! A pathologist is someone who conducts a post-mortem.He is not supposed to be an amatuer "Sherlock Holmes"Any theory should be based on
facts and logic i.e. evidence and logical deduction.Despite the fact that he took 2 days leave because he "was unwell" he was poorly tutored.
Any ordinary layman can tear his theory to pieces, not to mention trained lawyer like the son of "the Tiger of Jelutong"Can you sleep in peace "Dr."?

When one comes to court with an already biased opinion that it was homicide, Gobind cant accept the pathologist opinion that Teoh might have committed suicide.

Too bad, bai. And also to those who have made thir mind that Teoh was murdered.

Cant you all let the inquest proceed wthout having to give yr two sens and all those conjectures that Teoh was murdered.
