Death

Full article: David Kelly/Death

David Kelly was found dead days after appearing before the Parliamentary committee charged with investigating the scandal. A lot of evidence suggests that he was 'suicided', while the failure of the UK government to permit an inquest (the first such decision in a suspicious death case in several centuries) points to deep state involvement. Norman Baker MP stepped down from the shadow cabinet to investigate the death of David Kelly, and remarked that "the more I look into it the less convinced I am by the explanation and the more unanswered questions appear which ought to have been addressed properly by the Hutton inquiry or by the coroner."[5] A group of senior medical practitioners formed, including retired surgeon Dr David Halpin, formed and cited medical evidence claiming that for "all practical purposes" suicide using the means allegedly adopted by Dr Kelly "does not exist in Britain".[6]
