Death of US defense contractor in Saudi Arabia questioned
Christopher Cramer, 50, an American defense contractor, was found dead three stories below his hotel room in the Saudi town of Tabuk, while on assignment to provide technical assistance for the sale of advance defense systems. Saudi authorities initially classified his death as suicide. His family disputes the claim, citing frantic text messages begging for help shortly before his death. Former coroner Dr. Michael Baden says his injuries point to homicide rather than a fall.
