For many the sudden death of the government scientist and weapons inspector, Dr David Kelly, remains suspicious. The official verdict was suicide, but a public inquest was never held.

The Conspiracy Files investigates the suspicions that still surround Dr Kelly’s death in July 2003, when the controversy about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction was at its height. Doctors, lawyers, bloggers and politicians question the official account.

David Christopher Kelly, CMG (14 May 1944 – 17 July 2003) was a British scientist and expert on biological warfare, employed by the British Ministry of Defence, and formerly a United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq. He came to public attention in July 2003 when an unauthorised discussion he had off the record with a BBC journalist, Andrew Gilligan—about the British government’s dossier on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq—was cited by the journalist and led to a major controversy.
Kelly’s name became known to the media as Gilligan’s source, and he was called to appear on 15 July before the parliamentary foreign affairs select committee, which was investigating the issues Gilligan had reported. Kelly was questioned aggressively about his actions. He was found dead two days later.
