Footage of the closed circuit television (CCTV) on the 12th floor of the hotel, where Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer was found dead on March 18, has been sent to a laboratory in the United Kingdom.
The Scotland Yard detectives, who are here to assist the Jamaican Police in the investigation of Woolmer's mysterious death, sent the tapes to UK last week and said the experts there would take a deeper look at the footage, among other items of interest.
"This was confirmed yesterday by a high-ranking officer of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF)," said 'The Jamaica Gleaner' in its report.
The four Scotland Yard detectives were invited to assist in the Woolmer case at the request of Police Commissioner Lucius Thomas.
Meanwhile, there were reports that the CCTV footage were not clear but Deputy Commissioner of Police Mark Shields, who is leading the probe, denied this claim, saying he could easily identify people who traversed the corridor on the 12th floor.
Local detectives spent hours recently transferring hours of footage from VHS tape into a digital format, the paper said.
