Woolmer Murder: What's The Hold-Up?

It has been eight full days since Bob Woolmer was found by a hotel maid/Inzimam-ul-Haq (nobody has answered this one yet), naked and unconscious on his hotel room floor. We have been told from day one that the Police will examine CC footage from the hotel's security cameras to glean the movements and/or identity of the murderer(s).

So what's the hold-up? Why hasn't someone got around to examining the said tapes yet? Why is taking so long to jolt the wheels of justice into action? For all we know, the killers have most probably already fled the island.

I dear say, this police examination is fast looking line one of those classic goof-ups reminiscent of the Delhi Police's performance in many a high-profile case over the past 10 years.

It took three days for the autopsy to be conducted and the results to be communicated. IMHO, that was two days longer than it ought to have taken. It should have been treated as a murder from the outset, in order to speed up the investigation.

Mark Shields should be doing all he can to ensure that the investigation is as effective, efficient and timely as possible. That is his job and he owes it to Bob Woolmer's family to make sure that all known and confirmed leads are examined at the earliest, without any further delay.

Why does the whole world refuse to use common-sense when dealing with a cricket related issue. The ICC never possessed it and now the Jamaican Police are leaving us with plenty to ponder.
