Dr Paul Norman, Chief Scientist for Chemical and Biological Defence at Porton Down (Dr Kelly's role a decade earlier) met his sudden death in July 2004, almost exactly a year after Dr Kelly was found dead on Harrowdown Hill. Here is the BBC report:
Air crash man was weapons expert
The pilot of a light aircraft who was killed along with three passengers when his plane came down in a Devon field was a chemical weapons expert. Dr Paul Norman, 52, of Salisbury, Wiltshire, died when the Cessna 206 crashed shortly after taking off from Dunkeswell Airfield on Sunday. Dr Norman, a married father-of-two, was chief scientist for chemical and biological defence at Porton Down. He travelled the world lecturing on the subject of weapons of mass destruction. Dr Norman's Porton Down colleague Steve Eley said: "Paul was a great deal larger than life, and has left an enormous number of friends, all of whom have lost an irreplaceable part of their lives." Passengers injured Dr Norman's hobbies included parachuting, flying and looking after his small collection of old cars. Richard Smith, 42, and his daughter Claire, 17, from Winkleigh in Devon, also died at the scene of the crash near the village of Beacon. Parachute instructor and Royal Marine Major Mike Wills, 44, died later in hospital. The aircraft's other two passengers, 16-year-old Daniel Greening from Kingsteignton, Devon, and a 23-year-old from Taunton, Somerset, are still in hospital. The flight was organised by the Devon and Somerset Parachute School, which has temporarily suspended its operations. The crash site was examined by officials from the Air Accidents Investigation Branch and the wreckage of the aircraft was moved to the organisation's base at Farnborough.
Many more scientists have been murdered in Iraq:
310 Iraqi scientists murdered by Mossad
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.
