David Kelly (May 17, 1944 – July 17, 2003) was an employee of the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (MoD), he was an expert in biological warfare was once a United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq.

Kelly's discussion with the Today Programme journalist Andrew Gilligan on his BBC radio show, about the British government's dossier on weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq inadvertently caused a major political scandal, and he was asked to appear as a witness before two committees of the House of Commons that were investigating the situation in Iraq. Only a few days after this appearance he was found dead in the woods, after taking some pills and cutting his wrists open with a pocket knife[1]. The legitimacy of this apparent suicide has been questioned many times since.[2] [3]
