A Radio Jamaica reporter, quoting police sources, claimed that deceased Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer could have been strangulated.
"I made contact with the ongoing investigation. Police will tell the public and journalists that the cause of death was strangulation", the unnamed reporter said.
"I have sources in Jamaican Police and I stick by my sources. Maybe they wanted to make some extra precautions (before announcing)," he said.
Woolmer, 58, was found unconscious in his hotel room on Sunday and was pronounced dead at a local hospital, a day after Pakistan was beaten by Ireland that knocked the former champions out of this year's World Cup.
It has been revealed that there was blood and vomit in the room and Woolmer was found by hotel staff on the floor with his mouth wide open.
The preliminary autopsy on Woolmer has proved inconclusive.
