Some unexplained deaths are murder: researcher

Ten people in Amsterdam whose death was officially described as natural actually died of poison or an overdose of drugs, according to forensic researcher Kees Das on BNR radio.

Das looked into 1,000 deaths and found two possible murders and eight overdoses. He wants the health board to introduce far more screening of the blood and urine of people who die an unexplained death.
