Michael Brown’s Autopsy Report – Shot Six Times
The New York Times just reported the results of Michael Brown’s autopsy. Michael Brown is the 18-year old shot dead by Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson on August 9, 2014.
The report is based on the preliminary private autopsy performed today, August 17, 2014. Michael was shot at least six times, including twice in the head.
Dr. Michael M. Baden, former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, flew to Missouri today at the family’s request to conduct the separate autopsy. Dr. Baden found that one of the bullets entered the top of Michael’s skull, suggesting that his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused the fatal injury. Michael was also shot four times in the right arm. It does not appear that the shots were from a close range because no gunpowder was present on Michael’s body. Dr. Baden does not have access to the clothing that Michael wore when he was killed.In addition to the autopsy performed by Dr. Baden and local officials in Missouri, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said Sunday that the Justice Department would conduct its own autopsy, because of “the extraordinary circumstances involved in this case and at the request of the Brown family.”
Only three bullets were recovered from Michael’s body, and Dr. Baden can clarify the autopsy results after seeing the X-rays for where the bullets were found. Some of the bullets entered and exited several times, including one that left at least five different wounds.
Dr. Baden stated that the police should be examining the automobile to see if there is gunshot residue in the police car.
The video of the complete press conference with Dr. Baden is below.
