Expert says woman's Crete fall was 'possibly fatal'


A British pathologist has said a woman, who Greek police suspect was murdered on holiday, may have died as a result of an earlier fall.

Chelsea Hyndman, 21, from Castleford, West Yorkshire, died in Crete on 17 May.

Her boyfriend Luke Walker, 22, of Brierley Hill, West Midlands, is accused of beating her to death.

A Greek post-mortem test found Miss Hyndman's pancreas ruptured after multiple blows, but Allen Anscombe, a pathologist employed by Mr Walker's family, said a fall while out drinking 11 days earlier may have caused her death.

Miss Hyndman's family said they did not have the facts to either condemn or support Mr Walker. The family has asked for the matter to be left to the authorities to deal with.
