We are sorry to report that yet another cancer researcher/doctor has been found dead. This young doctor was from the UK (as were a few others we’ve reported on in recent weeks).
Despite being found dead in a field by a passerby and the fact that the autopsy was inconclusive, the death is not being treated as suspicious.
This comes as no surprise as many of the doctors who have been found dead have had their deaths ruled out as suspicious right away (including one UK researcher found hanging in a tree in a rubber suit).
We’ve actually traveled through this area and it’s a beautiful, quiet countryside that is one of the safest places I can think of. I have family in the UK and Europe and have been in this region more than once without incident.
From the article:
“The body of Dr Nadeera De Silva was discovered on a patch of land at Old Buckenham, near Attleborough, on Thursday after he had been reported missing.
“Yesterday police confirmed his identity and said his death was not being treated as suspicious. (Editor’s notes – how can they say that?)
“Dr De Silva, 34, who lived in Stacksford, near Old Buckenham, was a clinical researcher at the MRC Cancer Unit linked to the University of Cambridge.
“On behalf of the cancer unit, a university spokesman said: ‘He was a caring and skillful oncologist and, in the third year of his PhD, was already making a great contribution to cancer research, investigating new methods for blood monitoring and treatment for cancer of the oesophagus.
“He was above all, a valued colleague and friend who had an open, kind and generous personality and a wonderful laugh. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.’”
Reported missing on Monday, March 7th, his body was discovered on March 10th. A Norfolk Police spokesperson reported that as the initial examination was inconclusive, further tests will now be carried out.
