The coroner investigating the murder of Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer has confirmed a date for the start of his inquest.

Patrick Murphy will begin proceedings into the case on April 23rd although authorities warned that the procedure could take several weeks.

It was originally ordered by Jamaican police commissioner Lucius Thomas last month following the suspected strangulation of the former England international cricketer in his hotel room.

He was found dead on the morning of March 18th, the day after his Pakistan team were sensationally eliminated from the cricket World Cup by minnows Ireland.

Closed-circuit TV footage has since been sent to the UK for further analysis by the authorities in charge of the investigation in Kingston but Woolmer's body remains in the Caribbean pending the coroner's inquest.

In addition, two senior police officers from Pakistan have now been flown in to the Caribbean to oversee proceedings on behalf of their country's government.

Two memorial services have already been held for the 58-year-old – one in Cape Town, South Africa, where Woolmer's wife and two sons live and another in Pakistan.

Despite the widespread mourning over the sudden death of the popular coach, the World Cup has continued and is now midway through the Super Eight stage.

The Pakistan team has since flown home, although they managed to complete their full list of fixtures from the group stage and assisted the police with their enquiries before being allowed to leave.
