It's not the contradictory opinions so much as the contradictory claims by the police. Did the woman PC perform the feat or no? Was there liquid or no? Were there signs of another person in the flat or no? Was the man a bondage fan or no?Spookdaddy said:Expert witnesses having different opinions isn't really that rare, especially, I suspect, with something as specialised as locking yourself in a piece of luggage. What does surprise me is that there are that many people who specialise in the subject, or even that there's such a thing as a 'confined space expert'. I mean, how do you get into that?AngelAlice said:There's been an awful lot of contradicting going on hasn't there?
As to medical opinion - people are weird, I know, and they do weird things, but I don't easily see how a man would lock himself in the bag and then just lie there suffocating without trying to get out. And if he'd tried to get out his hands, and probably all of his body would show signs of a violent struggle. He'd likely shred his nails and gash his fingers to pieces trying to claw his way free.
I guess all things are possible, but the locking-himself-in theory does not seem the most probable from anything i've read.
