      Second autopsy: Hampton's death likely murder
      Sunday, November 1, 2009

      A doctor who carried out a second post-mortem examination on the body of Timothy Hampton says the nuclear expert's fall from the UN building in Vienna was murder.

      The 47-year-old British scientist, who was involved in monitoring nuclear activities, was found dead last week at the bottom of a staircase in the United Nations' building.

      The doctor who first examined Hampton's body concluded that there were 'no suspicious circumstances'. Following objections raised by his widow, Olena Gryshcuk, and her family as to the reliability of the assessment, another physician was asked to repeat the autopsy.
      The new doctor, Professor Kathrin Yen, of the Ludwig Institute in Graz, Austria, says she has found evidence that Hampton did not commit suicide.

      She believes one possible theory is that Hampton was carried to the 17th floor from his workplace on the sixth floor and thrown down from the height.

      "In my opinion, it does not look like suicide. My example is that somebody took him up to the top floor and threw him down.

      "At the moment I don't have the police reports. We did a CT scan.

      From the external exam, I saw injuries on the neck but these were not due to strangulation," she explained.

      At the time of his death, Hampton was an employee of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), which monitors tremors around the world to uncover illegal nuclear tests.

      Initial reports said that Hampton may have been involved in the Vienna talks between Iran and world powers in the Austrian capital, but a CTBTO spokesman later said that he was not connected with discussions.
