Michael Todd's 'murder' refuses to be cleared up.

Manchester police chief Michael Todd did not have a "huge" amount of alcohol in his blood when he died on Snowdon, the coroner said.

The coroner asked: "So, not a huge amount of alcohol then?"

Dr Caslin answered: "No, sir." - BBC NEWS - Todd inquest hears of drink level

The highly observant Postman Patel tells readers that Michael Todd's murder refuses to be cleared up.

At present there is an inquest into the mysterious death of police chief Michael Todd (ACPO head of terrorism) who was found dead on 10 March 2008.

Todd is reported to have sent text messages to friends.

According to Postman Patel:

The inquest contained many curious features ;

1. Recipients of the text messages sent by Todd were not identified other than by a coded alphabetical letter.

2. The time and location of the sending of those texts - especially on the fatal Monday have not been made public. This is important as press reports state that the initital searches were a wild goose chase based on wrong (?) information about the location of Todd's phone.

3. The finders of the body off the well worn track in atrocious weather (the worst storm in 10 years) were not identified nor it appears gave evidence.

4. The route (and crucially the timing) of Todd's police vehicle which will have had a tracker device - which could be confirmed by the NW Wales network of Number Plate Recognition cameras remains unpublished.The inquest was also told that Todd had visited suicide websites and drove to Cumbria on March 9 but had “bottled out” and gone home.

5. The role / activities / liason with the Police , of the Llanberis Mountain rescue team, and the various helicopters - "men in dark suits" remains still a mystery.


1. "His coat had also come off and some of his clothes were discovered nearby.

"The Mail report a source saying, 'There are no obvious injuries compatible with a fall from height.'

"The BBC News BBC 4 PM at 5.00 pm GMT made the odd announcement that Michael Todd sent texts on Monday aftrenoon which gave rise to concern that suggested danger to his life and that of others." - Michael Todd - A death has been reported - Curiouser and curiouser

2. "Sources at Greater Manchester Police said that among the items found with him were personal letters written to his loved ones, the BBC's Nick Ravenscroft said.

"No news yet of the heroic walkers, or their pictures, or their names, or why they were out there in that dreadful weather, or why the personal items were 200yds away, or why they hadn't blown away, or why they looked." - One of our policemen was missing - now we know he is dead. Did he fall ? ..... Or was he pushed ?

3. Top UK policeman Mike Todd could have been saved on Snowdon, says Mountain rescue boss Peter Walker.

Walker claims that a mysterious group of dark-suited men, believed to be from the security services, were seen at the bottom of Mount Snowdon after Mr Todd's body was found.

A mystery Chinook helicopter appeared above the body - but could not land. - 'Suicide' police chief: Why didn't they call us earlier say rescue services?

4. "Mr Todd had been leading a probe into claims that CIA 'extraordinary rendition' flights had been landing in the UK." - Shock as Manchester Chief Constable Michael Todd found dead

Assassination? "Let's not forget that one person has already been murdered who was reluctantly involved in approving a CIA kidnapping / rendition in Denmark ...Of course the Bromma airport incident in Sweden on December 18th 2001, is the most interesting of cases where approval was given because the lady (Swedish Foreign Minister Anna Lindh) who gave the approval for the kidnapping was murdered in public nearly two years later." - Michael Todd - Dead Men tell no Tales - The living are silent as well ... what happened to cop who investigated UK collusion in CIA Renditions ?
