UN Nuclear Expert's Death 'Not Suicide'

(4TH such U.N. jumping "suicide" in last year. 3 in same complex of buildings. 1 in NYC)

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."

Very interesting... He was working on the nuclear-test-ban-treaty?

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.

UN Vienna Offices

Austrian Times: Mystery deepens over Vienna UN death

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.’

A year ago someone died in the same facility of buildings in the same way?!

As of yet... I have not been able to find the NAME or EXACT DATE of the American Suicide at the Vienna IAEA building mentioned above. But here is another one I found out about in my initial search. This one seems FISHY too!

Other recent UN "suicides". An Austrian Connection?

The Death of Maria DiBiase FEB 18, 2008:
Crytogon: Austrian UN Employee Dies in Fall from 19th Floor
Reuters: Body found at U.N. likely suicide victim-police
AUSTRIAN UN employee dies in apparent suicide fall from 19th floor

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.

NewsFollowUp: Clinton/Bush Suspicious Deaths

Maria DiBiase: 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.

I am not finding ANYTHING about the "strikingly similar" suicide mention.

They mention that an "AMERICAN" died from apparent suicide fall in a stairwell in the IAEA offices across the street from where THIS suicide took place LESS THAN A YEAR AGO.

I have been SEARCHING MY BUTT OFF and so far cant find A DARN THING.

No name, date.... nothing.

Very fishy!!!!

I just had a powerful thought!!!


Logic tells me: No one!

Suicides by jumping seem to take place outdoors, from a bridge, or exterior of a building.

Jumping down a stairwell seems to risky to the suicidal's goal: in that it might not 'get the job done' like you only break a leg and hit the next level down.

UK Expert Involved in Iran Talks Dies Mysteriously

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.

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.

Yes, I have been keeping tabs on this since the latest story broke last week. Seems all very fishy to me, especially the "suicide" down a stairwell.

Brings to mind the "suicide" of Dr Kelly in the UK, who apparently killed himself in a wood near his home, even though the drugs he suppsoedly took would have knocked him for six leaving him unable to move, let alone walk the mile to the woods, only to slit his wrists and leave no blood...

EDIT: He too was working on Iraqi WMD monitoring for the UK Government...

I believe I am on to something. I found a PDF document with WHAT I believe to be Timothy Hampton's name attached to it.

Actually it just says T. Hampton, but it is for the (CTBTO) Comprehensive Test-Ban-Treaty Organization which he worked for.

He was found to have taken up to 29 co-proxamol tablets and death can occur from them within an hour of ingestion of as little as 20 tablets. Depends wether he took them in his home or with him, which also begs the question if he took so many, why slit his wrists too and what about the reports of little to no blood being found?

My MP, Norman Baker has been on a quest to get behind the truth to David Kellys death..

In July 2006 Baker claimed that evidence showing David Kelly's death was not a suicide had been wiped from his hard drive

While In 2007 he made the statement

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.

So we have more of the same here... my understanding is that Tim Hampton was a sysmologist which would put his early working career at AWE Blacknest..

So what area could he talk authoritivly on that would have got him killed..

Should we be expecting sizememic evidence that he could have debunked/supported??

What secrets did he take with him?

I've been searching for this story for days and found ZERO. I remember there being report of a British scientist falling down a stairwell, (14 stories?). It can't be more than 4 or 5 months ago. I'm positive he was British. I'm also sure he had curly hair and glasses. It was said he'd apparently walked through a gap in the stairwell and fell to his death, so it was an accident. I remember thinking "why the hell would there be a gap for someone to walk into then fall to their death? 14 stories high?"

Why can't I find this on the net????

All very interesting. It's risky business to know things these days because someone always wants to determine what should be a secret.

I remember reading about this quite awhile ago...

I ran a scenario through my mind (a dangerous thing to do sometimes) and this is what I came up with...

As already noted, this isn't the first time this has happened at the UN.

And obviously, some attention to the location (United Nations) should also be noted.

Also, I don't think the husband should be the area of focus..

Lets look at his wife...

His widow, an inspector for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), was working in Japan when her husband died.

Source: austriantimes

Now, hypothetically speaking... If a bad person wanted a mother to keep quiet or cooperate. They would probably threaten her son, and demonstrate what they can do... ie: her husband.

I wonder what was on her itinerary???

Anyway... I know its old news... but, for some reason I was thinking about it...
