Police investigations at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel

The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica won’t be relishing the media coverage it’s getting right now.   For it was here – in room 12-374 – that it’s been revealed that Pakistan’s cricket coach Bob Woolmer was murdered less than 24 hours after they exited the Cricket World Cup.   It was originally thought that he may have had a heart attack, but post mortem results have shown that he was strangled. It’s believed Mr. Woolmer may have known his killers as there have been no signs of forced entry, and police are currently wading through video footage from the hotel.   The Cricket World Cup is continuing despite the incident.
