malaysiakini REPORTS on the TEOH BENG HOCK Inquest

The story from malaysiakini is hardly surprising.
Gov't pathologist disputes Pornthip's findings.
Based on his so-called expert(?) testimony, he wants us to believe that both the head and anal injuries are caused by the fall.
This can happen if the body does a 180 degree somersault whereby the neck gets trapped in some narrow place; then releases itself and the body then continues to fall feet first and pierces some kind of pointed object that can penetrate the anus.
Now isn't that incredulous?
I don't believe that is possible unless the expert can show exactly what happened to cause the injuries and not simply claim that that was what occurred. Maybe a layman will describe it as such but for a professional, it hardly meets any decent standard of expertise.

Everybody knows that TBH fell and one reason for his death could be the fall.

What people want to know is whether there are other possible causes of his death. As a pathologist, isn't that his job to determine the possible causes of death ?
