Police refuse to comment on Woolmer murder suspect
April 23, 2007 12:35 IST
Playing down media reports of a suspect's identification in the Bob Woolmer murder case, Jamaica police have refused to confirm or deny any such development.
Police have opted to keep mum on the issue despite having the CCTV footage of the hotel, where the Pakistan coach was found murdered, back in their possession after digital enhancement.
British media had reported that a suspect had been caught on the CCTV footage from the Jamaica Pegasus hotel where the incident occurred a little over a month ago.
The footage had been sent to Britain for digital enhancement and is now with the Jamaica police, who said they would inform about the result later.
"When that is so, the media will be officially informed," director of communications of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Karl Angell said when asked to comment on the reports.
"Yes, we have received from Scotland Yard some of the footage, but I cannot comment on the matter," another high-ranking officer was quoted as saying by The Jamaica Gleaner.
Earlier, the British media had given a new twist to the case by reporting that snake venom may have been used to poison Woolmer.
