Meanwhile, a special investigative team of the Scotland Yard has been dispatched to Pakistan to investigate the incident. “Yes, we know about the team. Actually, the case is quite simple and straight. McBride was found dead with no injury mark on his body, so we pronounced the incident a natural death,” a senior police investigator said on the condition of anonymity.
Earlier, the City Police were confronted with a unique situation when they tried to reach the family of the deceased lawyer and his friends asked them to contact his gay-partner in Scotland.
McBride had arrived in Pakistan along with his two American-born Pakistani friends,namely Fareed Mehmood and Muhammad Aamir Anwar, to attend the marriage ceremony of a friend’s son. However, he was found dead in his room at the hotel.
Police recovered the body and shifted it to the City morgue, but an autopsy could not be performed without the permission and presence of the deceased’s heirs.
However, the officials working with the morgue said they could not conduct an autopsy without the presence of a family member. Further investigations are underway.
