Heart disease most likely killed coach

Thursday, June 14, 2007

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Heart disease likely killed Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer, authorities said Wednesday, while an opposition leader in Jamaica's parliament called for firing the pathologist who set off a global murder investigation by concluding he had been strangled.

Karl Angell, a spokesman for the Jamaican Constabulary Force, told The Associated Press that police are "99 percent sure" Woolmer died from heart failure but said it will be up to the coroner to issue the official cause of death.
