Initial cause of death as determined by the State medical examiner Fahmy Malak, was the result of falling asleep on a railroad track after smoking marijuana on August 23, 1987
MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT
Dr. Malak's testimony cannot be released at this time.
...At first, it became a story about former Arkansas State Medical Examiner Fahmy Malak's practically "off-the-wall" finding that the cause of the deaths was accidental, and that the two young men fell asleep on the railroad tracks in a marijuana-induced stupor and were run over by a train.

...Dr. Fahmy Malak, Arkansas' controversial former state medical examiner, has sought a similar $160,000 a-year job as chief medical examiner in Guam, a U.S. Trust Territory island in the southern Marianas.
But Malak's chances of landing the new job may have paled last week because of apparent inconsistencies in a resume he
presented to job interviewers on the 209 square-mile island.
...When questioned later about the resume item, Malak said he actually had been a lower-ranking assistant professor.Further checks by Dr. Hee-Yong Park, Guam's retiring medical examiner, revealed Malak had been an unpaid clinical assistant professor at UAMS in Little Rock.Upon Malak's resignation Sept. 10, 1991. from the Arkansas medical examiner's post, he began working for the state Health Department as a consultant and was paid $70,000 a year.Shannon Murphy, a reporter at the News, said Thursday that the question of Malak's employment had been deferred at least until Monday so Malak could respond to the panel's concerns about his Arkansas tenure.
