Im not sure where they are getting the $20K figure to exhume a body?!!


You can hire a backhoe, and operator for roughly $150 per hour. If the body is buried at the full 6ft depth, it would take about 20 minutes for a backhoe to reach it and lift it out...take the samples they need right on the spot and then lower him back down and have the backhoe move the dirt back in.

My impression, is that someone placed him there, and positioned him to look like he was resting or sleeping. I don't know what the enlarged liver and spleen, and internal bleeding could indicate, other than poisoning, if there are any other possible interpretations. I could be wrong; it's just a hunch.

I agree with the poisoning. The coroner also thought so. I don't think it's suicide--why go to such a public place to kill oneself?

It seems there are two main theories: espionage, or love triangle. They don't mutually exclude each other, though. The guy Alf Boxall in the interview in the last video above looked suspicious.

The other thing is, the first people who found him on the beach, they saw his right hand making a movement (raising?), then dropped, so it sounds like he died right there and then.
