A copycat thing

Details begin to emerge following the death of Timothy Hampton, a British nuclear expert working with the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO). It transpires Hampton may not have committed suicide by flinging himself 17 floors down the stairs; he may have been flung.

Under a year ago, an American died at the IAEA in strikingly similar circumstances, his body being found at the bottom of a stairwell.

A UN spokeswoman said an investigation into that case continues, though Austrian police have concluded it was suicide. She said: ‘This might have been a copycat thing in the CTBTO.’
