Dead Brit scientist was found with "4 electrocardiogram pads" on chest

Is this a standard procedure when you're committing suicide nowadays? ?????????

Blair to face Hutton inquiry


The judge investigating the events surrounding the death of weapons expert Dr David Kelly has opened his inquiry and confirmed he intends to call Tony Blair as a witness. Lord Hutton began by telling a packed court room that the inquiry had been prompted by a "very tragic death" and that it would be fitting to stand for a minute's silence.

The senior judge spent the first 35 minutes of the session explaining how he will conduct the inquiry and who he will call to give evidence, including the prime minister, the Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon, BBC journalist Andrew Gilligan and Dr Kelly's widow. ...

He also revealed that Dr Kelly's body had been found with four electrocardiogram pads on his chest - one of the issues he wished to resolve.

Dr Kelly had a coronary artery disease which may have sped up his death though not caused it, the pathologist reported.
