Timothy Hampton

Saturday 24th October 2009

It's odd how little coverage there has been of this story:

A British nuclear expert taking part in disarmament talks with Iran has died in mysterious circumstances at a UN building in Austria.

Timothy Hampton, 47, plunged to his death from the 17th floor and was found in a stairwell just hours before high-level discussions were due to resume in Vienna.

Investigators said they have not ruled out murder or suicide, but local sources said no suicide note was found.

Police are also investigating the death of another Brit who fell from the same building four months ago.


Note that I have absolutely no theory or further information about this: but I would have expected to see it covered by the Times, Guardian and BBC, but as far as I can see it hasn't been.

Given the stakes involved, it could be very significant.
