The Victorian state coroner Iain West has concluded an inquest into the deaths of Australians on board MH17.  In an 11-page judgement issued on Wednesday morning at the Victorian Coroners Court in Melbourne, West ruled “it was not feasible to conduct a complete autopsy of all deceased”, and “in the absence of autopsy there is no other evidence to establish individual causes of death. To attempt to do would be speculative and hence not a basis for making finds of fact.”  He then proceeded to endorse the conclusion of the Dutch Safety Board that the passengers and crew of MH17 had been killed by the detonation of a [BUK missile].  West’s ruling contradicts testimony given in his court yesterday by AFP Detective Superintendent Andrew Donoghoe, who told the court that the DSB finding on the Buk missile was uncertain in the ongoing forensic and criminal investigation.
