New probe closer in student’s death


The family of a British student killed in Germany in 2003 moved one step closer to a new review of the case.

A London court ruled Thursday that the case had "unusual features" and could proceed to a full judicial review, the Guardian reported.

Jeremiah Duggan died under mysterious circumstances in Wiesbaden after attending an event hosted by the Schiller Institute, a right-wing organization affiliated with Lyndon LaRouche, a controversial American political activist and accused anti-Semite. 

Initial inquiries into Duggan’s death determined that he had died of head injuries after being hit by a car. But Duggan’s family, who reportedly received a call from Germany shortly before the incident in which Duggan told them he was in "deep trouble," has refused to accept the findings and pushed for a new investigation.
