Now 88 Dead Scientists
And Microbiologists
Compiled By Mark J. Harper
Updated June 16, 2005

While some of these deaths may be purely coincidental and seem
to pose no connection, many of these deaths are highly
suspicious and appear not to be random acts of violence. Many
are just plain murders.

Marconi Scientists Mystery

In the 1980,s over two dozen science graduates and experts
working for Marconi or Plessey Defence Systems died in
mysterious circumstances, most appearing to be 'suicides.' The
MOD denied these scientists had been involved in classified
Star Wars Projects and that the deaths were in any way

Judge for yourself...

March 1982 - Professor Keith Bowden, 46

-- Expertise: Computer programmer and scientist at Essex
University engaged in work for Marconi, who was hailed as an
expert on super computers and computer-controlled aircraft.

-- Circumstance of Death: Fatal car crash when his vehicle
went out of control across a dual carriageway and plunged onto
a disused railway line. Police maintained he had been drinking
but family and friends all denied the allegation.

-- Coroner's verdict: Accident.

April 1983 - Lt. Colonel Anthony Godley, 49

-- Expertise: Head of the Work Study Unit at the Royal College
of Military Science.

-- Circumstance of Death: Disappeared mysteriously in April
1983 without explanation. Presumed dead.

March 1985 - Roger Hill, 49

-- Expertise: Radar designer and draughtsman with Marconi.

-- Circumstance of Death: Died by a shotgun blast at home.

-- Coroner's verdict: Suicide.

November 19, 1985 - Jonathan Wash, 29

-- Expertise: Digital communications expert who had worked at
GEC and at British Telecom,s secret research centre at
Martlesham Heath, Suffolk.

-- Circumstance of Death: Died as a result of falling from a
hotel room in Abidjan, West Africa, while working for British
Telecom. He had expressed fears that his life was in danger.

-- Coroner's verdict: Open.

August 4, 1986 - Vimal Dajibhai, 24

-- Expertise: Computer software engineer with Marconi,
responsible for testing computer control systems of Tigerfish
and Stingray torpedoes at Marconi Underwater Systems at
Croxley Green, Hertfordshire.

-- Circumstance of Death: Death by 74m (240ft.) fall from
Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol. Police report on the body
mentioned a needle-sized puncture wound on the left buttock,
but this was later dismissed as being a result of the fall.
Dajibhai had been looking forward to starting a new job in the
City of London and friends had confirmed that there was no
reason for him to commit suicide. At the time of his death he
was in the last week of his work with Marconi.

-- Coroner's verdict: Open.

October 1986 - Arshad Sharif, 26

-- Expertise: Reported to have been working on systems for the
detection of submarines by satellite.

-- Circumstance of Death: Died as a result of placing a
ligature around his neck, tying the other end to a tree and
then driving off in his car with the accelerator pedal jammed
down. His unusual death was complicated by several issues:
Sharif lived near Vimal Dajibhai in Stanmore, Middlesex, he
committed suicide in Bristol and, inexplicably, had spent the
last night of his life in a rooming house. He had paid for his
accommodation in cash and was seen to have a bundle of
high-denomination banknotes in his possession. While the
police were told of the banknotes, no mention was made of them
at the inquest and they were never found. In addition, most of
the other guests at the rooming house worked at British
Aerospace prior to working for Marconi, Sharif had also worked
at British Aerospace on guided weapons technology.

-- Coroner's verdict: Suicide.

monoxide poisoning, in his Oxfordshire garage. The
circumstances of his death raised some elements of doubt. His
wife had found him on his back with his head parallel to the
rear car bumper and his mouth in line with the exhaust pipe,
with the car engine running. Police were apparently baffled as
to how he could have manoeuvred into the position in which he
was found.

noose around her neck. Her feet were also bound and her hands
tied behind her back.

MOSSAD (Israels Secret Service) Liquidates 310 Iraqi Scientists

More than 310 Iraqi scientists are thought to have perished at
the hands of Israeli secret agents in Iraq since fall of
Baghdad to US troops in April 2003, a seminar has found.

The Iraqi ambassador in Cairo, Ahmad al-Iraqi, accused Israel
of sending to Iraq immediately after the US invasion 'a
commando unit' charged with the killing of Iraqi scientists.

"Israel has played a prominent role in liquidating Iraqi
scientists. The campaign is part of a Zionist plan to kill
Arab and Muslim scientists working in applied research which
Israel sees as threatening its interests," al-Iraqi said.
