Probe continues on death of US pilot in Colombo

bodyThe police are investigating the death of a US Air Force pilot whose body was discovered from a hotel room in Colombo last week.

Police Media Spokesperson ASP Ruwan Gunesekare told Xinhua that the victim’s body was discovered last Thursday night from a room of a five star hotel where he had checked in a day earlier.

Police officers conducting the investigations revealed that hotel employees contacted the police after they grew suspicious as several calls to the victim’s room remain unanswered.

“We are conducting further investigations into his death. Right now the Judicial Medical Officer (JMO) is conducting a post mortem and once this is completed we will have more details,” ASP Gunesekare said.

The victim had on Wednesday checked into the hotel after bringing a group of American tourists to the island country, Xinhua reported.
