Even putting aside the weasel words ("on balance", "more probable&quot the key
point in this "statement" is the phrase "when Gareth died".

It completes a nice hand-wave over the minutes immediately before he died
in order to project the impression that the entire thing happened while he
was alone.

The coroner was right. The corrupt copper is involved in yet another cover-up.
