Riga - A medical examiner who claimed that a leading cause of death amongst lesbians 'is hair balls' has been struck off from his country's register of approved coroners.
Dr Zigfrids Leedskalnin said today he stands by his theory after performing thousands of autopsies at the Riga National Mortuary.
A descendant of Latvia's famous philosopher Edvil Leedskalnin who built Coral Castle in Florida and claimed to have cracked ancient Egyptians' magnetic levitation secrets that were used to construct the Egyptian pyramids, Dr Leedskalnin is suing for unfair dismissal.
Attorneys acting for the 60-something medic issued a statement today saying their client has retrieved and kept 'several hundredweight' of hair-like material extracted during post mortems on behalf of the State.
However whistleblowers at Riga Veterinary School insist that the man's a usurper who failed his final year examination circa 1962 involving the autopsy of a run-over domestic cat 'and has been bonkers ever since'.
Under the EU's strict anti-gay bashing directives Leedskalnin faces dismissal from his government post, a maximum fine of 50,000 Euros and possible imprisonment for up to five years.
Commenting on his sacking a Latvia-LGBT Collective spokesperson said 'WTF?' today.
