The last CCTV footage of Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer shows that he was with two other persons in the Jamaican hotel lobby on the night of his murder.

The former England player was found dead in his hotel room on March 18, a day after Pakistan's shocking exit from the World Cup and his murder still remains unresolved.

According to the last CCTV footage to be aired by BBC, Woolmer standing at some distance from two men pointing with his right hand at one of them. One man is dressed in a white shirt and black trousers and the other is in a black dress.

According to the BBC, results of the toxicology tests have shown that there was a drug in his body that would have incapacitated him.

The results of toxicology tests mean that it now seems certain that Woolmer was rendered helpless before being strangled, the BBC's Panorama programme says.

"Those tests will show there was a drug in his system that would have incapacitated Mr Woolmer," Panorama's Adam Parsons said.

"It now seems certain that as he was being strangled, he'd already been rendered helpless - leaving him unable to fight back. The specific details of that poison are now very likely to offer a significant lead to finding his murderer," he added.
