Bob Woolmer's last email before his murder is set to become the focus of police investigations after friends of the Pakistan cricket coach expressed suspicion that it may have been sent by his killers to cover their tracks.

According to a report in The Sunday Telegraph, the Jamaican police is "very interested" in the email, which was Woolmer's resignation from the post of Pakistan coach sent to the Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Nasim Ashraf.

Woolmer's friends suspect that it may have been sent by his murderers as the language in the mail was not familiar to what the late coach used.

In a part of the e-mail, Woolmer reportedly wrote, "I would like to praise my association with the Pakistan team but now I would like to announce my retirement after the World Cup, to live the rest of my life in Cape Town. I have no lust for the job and I will not like others to make personal remarks at me." His friends say the wording was clearly not of someone whose first language was English.
