So we all remember the gruesome Bob Woolmer story, right? The cricket coach who died in his hotel room after losing to Ireland? Well, now cricket officials in Pakistan are disputing the Jamaican police's assessment of the case as a murder.

Pakistan cricket board officials suspect that the death of coach Bob Woolmer was due to natural causes and that the Jamaican police acted hastily by declaring it a murder.

A senior official of the board, who asked not to be identified, said they had received information that there could have been mistakes in the first autopsy on Woolmer's body.

Naturally, the cricket officials are experienced crime professionals who all have experience as coroners working on corpses on the other side of the world. Let's look back on this fun quote from an earlier part of the story:

Blood, vomit and diarrhea were splattered over the walls and floor of Woolmer's hotel bathroom, said Pakistan's team spokesman Pervez Mir Wednesday afternoon.

Yeah, natural causes. Like ebola.
