The second day of the inquest into Vicky’s death saw evidence given by another 8 witnesses. The doctor who performed the autopsy explained the state of the body and confirmed once more that Vicky died by drowning.
The final witness for the day ranged over wider ground, speaking of Vicky’s previous ‘boyfriends’, that the woman had been suffering recurrent headaches at some stage – but not immediately before – she died, Vicky’s use of ‘holy oil’ and matters relating to whether or not long-service leave would be taken.
This evidence has already been given to the police during their investigation, and the long-service issue has been dealt with through the Labour Department mediation process. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see what the South China Morning Post makes of it tomorrow.
The final witness will speak again tomorrow, and two more witnesses will be called.
NOTE FROM THE BLOG ADMINISTRATOR: As the Thorough Investigation page on this blog might contain speculation capable of influencing those directly involved in the inquest hearings, I’ve removed it until the jury hands down its finding about Vicky.
