Can science silence the doubters on David Kelly?

"If you want to repudiate the group of people who claim that the death of Dr David Kelly has not satisfactorily been proven as suicide, despite last week's publication of the post-mortem report, the easiest and cheapest way to do so is simply to label them conspiracy theorists. Without addressing any of the evidence, the mere use of those two words belittles and dismisses more effectively than any forensic examination of their case ever could. But be careful. If it is a fatal flaw to see any inconsistency as a sign of a sinister conspiracy, then it is just as mistaken to see any suggestion of a conspiracy as a sign of irrational paranoia."
