A British nuclear expert who fell out of the 17th floor of a United Nations building did not commit suicide.
The doctor said Timothy Hampton may have been hurled to his death.
The 47-yr-old nuclear scientist was found dead last week at the bottom of a stairwell in Vienna.
Professor Kathrin Yen, of the Ludwig Institute in Graz, Austria, believes one theory is that Hampton was carried to the 17th floor from his 6th floor office and thrown to his death.
Hampton was "not the suicide type."
He had been working for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO) at the UN building and the Austrian Times has been told that Mr Hampton may have been involved in talks discussing nuclear testing in Iran. The UN has strongly denied the claims although Mr Hampton's title - processing engineer - meant he was "part of the team maintaining and operating the International Data Centre Division application software to generate and distribute data products and services to CTBTOs 182 Member States".
This meant he was responsible for monitoring a vast array of technical data from hundreds of monitoring stations around the world in the hope of discovering any illegal nuclear activity - including Iran. In fact although CTBTO officials were reluctant to admit it, of the 300 plus monitoring stations set up globally there are at least two in the geographical area of Iran sending data back to Vienna.
Mr Hampton's body was discovered last Tuesday at about 8pm. Friends said it was usual for him to work late into the night.
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.’
Maria DiBiase, who worked with the Austrian Consulate, was discovered in the complex's rear courtyard by horrified UN staffers about 8 a.m., police said.
DiBiase, who lived in a dormitory on W. 34th St., apparently jumped after showing up for work at the UN early Sunday, police sources said.
Maria DiBiase: www.waynemadsenreport.com has learned from UN sources that the 19th Floor from which UN employee Maria DiBiase plunged to her death in the early morning of February 17, houses the Department of Peace-keeping Operations/Field Administration and Logistics Division (DPKO/FALD). The offices also house the code machines used for the encrypted fax machines used for DPKO activities in addition to a spare set of code machines used for DPKO rapid response teams. DiBiase, an Austrian national, was a computer specialist for the UN and a former Conference Services staff member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, Austria.
WMR has learned that the UN Special Commission (UNSCOM) maintained in a special UN's computer database all the files on Sadaam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction program retrieved from compact disks provided to UNSCOM by Saddam's government prior to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. The database is said to include all the black market nuclear suppliers involved in providing materials to Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, and Libya via Turkey and the A Q Khan smuggling network. The list reportedly includes front companies in Switzerland linked to Marc Rich, the American fugitive pardoned by President Clinton, and Dick Cheney. DiBiase is said to have arrived at work Sunday morning to finish a project that was due on Monday morning. WMR has been told that there may have been a "black bag" operation taking place on the 19th floor at the same time DiBiase arrived at work.
According to UN staff members, four months ago, an employee, who was also believed to be British, lost his life in a similar case when plunging down from a comparable height.
In July 2006 Baker claimed that evidence showing David Kelly's death was not a suicide had been wiped from his hard drive
I am convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that this could not be suicide. The medical evidence does not support it and David Kelly's state of mind and personality suggests otherwise. It was not an accident so I am left with the conclusion that it is murder.

I do not know if THIS is the similar case? OR YET A fourth !
The similar case they said was AMERICAN. This leads me to believe we are talking about a 4th suspicious suicide.
His widow, an inspector for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), was working in Japan when her husband died.
