The Murder of Dr David Kelly


Dr David Kelly, British microbiologist and biological weapons expert, was found dead in woods near his Oxfordshire home on July 18th 2003.
(1) His death marked the pinnacle of a spectacular row over the British governments justification for a war on Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.

Officially, Kelly killed himself.

However, many people think the man who blew the whistle on the case for war just wasn’t the kind to commit
(2) suicide.

In late May journalist Andrew Gilligan told BBC Radio’s Today show that a high ranking Ministry of Defence source had informed him that the government had ‘sexed-up’ the September dossier that claimed Iraq have and are willing to use Weapons of Mass Destruction.
(3) Angered by this leak, the government insisted that the BBC should reveal the source of these claims and on July 8th they themselves claimed to have discovered who the leak was.

In a controversial move the MOD named Kelly as the source to the press – by letting the members
(4) of press read out a list of names, Kelly’s name was the only one the MOD spokesperson didn’t respond to with an answer of ‘no’ (as in ‘no, he/she wasn’t the source’).

As a result of this Kelly was interrogated by the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee and by
(5) numerous Intelligence Agencies.

The next day Kelly left his Oxfordshire home and set out on his daily evening walk.

His body was found a day later.

The official autopsy report stated that Kelly was found with his left wrist slashed and he had also taken a large
(6) quantity of Coproxamol painkillers.

The obvious verdict was suicide.

This verdict was set in stone after the Hutton Inquiry (presided over by senior judge Lord Hutton) agreed with the official circumstances surrounding Kelly’s death – stating that this deeply private man
(7) couldn’t handle the exposure to the MSM and the possible damage it was doing to his career/reputation.

However, this is far from an open and shut case.

Let’s look at why...

The body.

Louise Holmes and Paul Chapman, the two volunteers who found Kelly’s body, stated that
(8) it was propped up against a tree when they discovered it.

On their way to report the gruesome find they met three plain clothes police detectives who told them to head straight to the nearest Police station.
(9) The three detectives carried on towards the scene of Kelly’s death.

Witnesses later placed the body lying flat on its back away from the tree.

Later tests proved that Kelly had died on his back - so how did he come to be propped up against a tree?
(10) And who had moved it back to a lying position?

Significantly, it emerged via a Freedom of Information request in 2008 that a police helicopter with heat-seeking equipment which searched for Dr Kelly on the night he disappeared did not detect his body.
(11) At 2.50am on July 18, 2003, the helicopter flew over the exact spot where Dr Kelly’s body was found by a search party less than six hours later, at 8.30am.

Yet the pathologist who took Dr Kelly’s body temperature at 7pm on the day his body was found determined that
(12) Dr Kelly could still have been alive at 1.15am on July 18 — just 95 minutes before the helicopter flew over the patch of woodland.

Why didn’t the helicopter pick it up?

Was it because Dr Kelly did not die where his body was found?
(13) Not only that but there was a distinct lack of blood at the scene (nowhere near the five pints predicted that a fatal haemorrhage) and Kelly’s body was covered in scratched and bruises – evident signs of a struggle.

There were no signs of struggle at the scene.
(14) Near the top of all British death certificates is a box headed ‘Date and place of death’, in which a doctor or coroner should declare the exact location of a death, if it has been established.

Dr Kelly’s certificate gives his date of death as July 18, 2003.
(15) It then states in reference to place of death: ‘Found dead at Harrowdown Hill, Longworth, Oxon’.

Why was the word ‘found’ used?

Why was the crucial question of ‘place of death’ not answered?

The death certificate should be precise about the time, cause and location of
(16) death.

The doctors who have investigated the case believe the failure to answer this question leaves open the possibility that Dr Kelly died somewhere other than Harrowdown Hill, the wood where his body was discovered.

If this was the case, they are concerned the law
(17) may have been subverted over Dr Kelly’s death.

These same doctors also raise suspicions about the ‘fatal’ wound that Kelly supposedly inflicted upon himself.

Somehow Kelly had managed to perform the dexterous feat of slashing his ulnar artery, not the radial one, and
(19) Doctors from all areas of medicine – anaesthetists, trauma specialists, radiologists, vascular surgeons, pathologists and public health consultants – all agreed that the stated primary cause of Kelly’s death was “highly improbable”.
(20) The idea was “against classical medical teaching”.

As for the Coproxamol overdose – the official report could not confirm whether Kelly had taken 29 Coproxamol tablets (as was stated) and the toxicologist who measured Kelly’s Coproxamol level said it was just a third of
(21) what was usually considered fatal.

The Hutton Inquiry

We have already seen what Lord Huttons verdict was – Suicide.

However, this was not the verdict of an official inquest.

The Hutton Inquiry wasn’t even given the remit to investigate Kelly’s death as such, only
(22) the actions of the government and the BBC that preceded it.

Oxfordshire Coroner Nicholas Gardiner opened an inquest on July 21.

But on August 13 the then Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer, Tony Blair’s former flatmate, ordered it to be adjourned indefinitely.
(23) Falconer used an obscure law to suspend proceedings, and for the first time in English legal history he replaced an inquest with a non-statutory public inquiry to examine a single death, seemingly without any public explanation.

This was only the fourth time such an
(24) inquiry had occurred – in all the other instances the case in question had involved numerous victims – not just a single victim.

Because of this the public were led to believe that the investigation would be conducted more meticulously and

(25) so the findings would be far more accurate.

This was not the case at all.

He (Hutton) could not hear evidence under oath; he could not subpoena witnesses; he could not call a jury; and he could not aggressively cross-examine witnesses.
(26) Even more ridiculous is the fact that, three weeks into the Hutton Inquiry, Dr Kelly’s death certificate was mysteriously completed and the cause of his death officially registered as haemorrhage.
(27) Put another way, five weeks before the Hutton Inquiry ended on September 24, 2003, and while the judge was still taking evidence about Dr Kelly’s death from witnesses, the official record of the cause of death was written and the case effectively closed.
(28) The Hutton Inquiry was set up, not to investigate but to cover up the numerous discrepancies that were evident.

Amazingly, Chief Inspector (now Superintendent) Alan Young of Thames Valley Police, who headed the investigation into Dr Kelly’s death, did not even give
(29) evidence to the Hutton Inquiry.

And of the three hundred witness statements concerning Kelly’s death, only 70 were submitted to the Hutton Inquiry.

The number 70 has even more significance in light of new evidence:
(30) In January 2010, it emerged that unpublished medical and scientific records relating to Dr Kelly’s death - including the post-mortem report and photographs of his body - had been secretly classified so as not to be made public for 70 years.

Lord Hutton, who had been
(31) appointed by Blair, was responsible for this extraordinary gagging order, yet its legal basis has baffled experts accustomed to such matters.

What have they got to hide?

And don’t expect to see this classification overturned anytime soon – as Liberal Democrat MP
(32) Norman Baker found when he tried to use the Freedom of Information to apply to see the records – thanks to section 41 of the act known as an ‘absolute exemption’ there is no chance of them being made available.

It wouldn’t surprise me if they go ‘missing’ at some point
(33) in those 70 years.

The Masons - "Many dark actors playing games"

‘The Masons?’ I hear you ask.

Well yes, there is another theory coming straight out of left field that implicates the Masons and those members of possible secret societies at Oxford....
(35) So, did Dr David Kelly stumble across some sort of Masonic ritual and pay the ultimate price?

Had some of Oxfords movers and shakers been exposed as devil worshippers?

Did Kelly himself become some sort of ritualistic sacrifice?

It’s a theory that I’m sure will
(36) interest some but not one that I can take seriously.

There was enough reason for Kelly to be murdered without implicating the Masons and other occult ideas.

I decided to include it because I had never heard of it before - some might say for good reason, but it does no
(37) harm to look into it.

No matter what your personal beliefs are concerning the whos, whys and hows – I hope that one thing has been made evident – the official verdict is highly questionable.

What you must now ask yourself is could a modern day government kill someone
(38) like Kelly so audaciously in the midst of a media maelstrom?

Perhaps only a government also audacious enough to base its public case for going to war on shamelessly inadequate intelligence.

I leave you with the comment supposedly made by Kelly himself in February 2003...
