  1. What was the pattern of trauma in the gross necropsy, as opposed to the cranial necropsy that Joe performed? Surprisingly little detail has been shared about the initial necropsy (when tissues were presumably fresher).

    In fact, I’m not aware of a single photo of the right side of L-112’s body — the side which apparently was most damaged. Was the pattern of trauma on the whole body consistent with the glancing blow hypothesis? Was the hemorrhage associated with air-filled organs (lungs, intestines) in the body as well as the head (mouth, trachea, sinuses, ears), as one expects for acoustic trauma?

    I sure hope the final necropsy report provides a lot more detail then either of the preliminary reports have given us…

  2. Sadly, it appears a curtain has been drawn over the results of both the initial necropsy and the cranial necropsy, even to the point of reporting erroneously that “a host” of other explanations are possible (without describing any), and insinuating that anyone arriving at the most logical conclusion based on all the evidence is “scapegoating.”
