    Either he was killed or died of natural causes. What take so long to decide the cause of death. If he was killed either by being shot or stabbed, there would be blood loss.

    This isn't Sherlock Holmes, Gemba. What about strangulation, suffocation, inhalation etc etc? But on a separate note, the rise in deaths have increased after the war and no justice is being prevailed. Even if there is, in most cases it is just eyewash.

    Heart attack?

    People are dying of natural causes because of the pressures of high cost of living but most of all because they are unable to bear the unjust government and its family of rulers who are taking all for themselves and giving nothing to others.
    After all we all have a streak of jealousy do we not?
