Michael Brown’s autopsy was finally revealed on Saturday, and the results were shocking. According to Mediaite, Brown was shot at least 6 times, including 2 times in the head, by Officer Darren Wilson.
Shockingly, Brown was also found to have marijuana in his system at the time of his death.
The New York Times reported that the autopsy was performed by Dr. Michael Baden and Prof. Shawn Parcells. Here are some excerpts of their findings:
One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, who flew to Missouri on Sunday at the family’s request to conduct the separate autopsy. It was likely the last of bullets to hit him, he said.
Mr. Brown, 18, was also shot four times in the right arm, he said, adding that all the bullets were fired into his front.
The bullets did not appear to have been shot from very close range because no gunpowder was present on his body. However, that determination could change if it turns out that there is gunshot residue on Mr. Brown’s clothing, to which Dr. Baden did not have access.
The Times went on to say:
Dr. Baden said that while Mr. Brown was shot at least six times, only three bullets were recovered from his body. But he has not yet seen the X-rays showing where the bullets were found, which would clarify the autopsy results. Nor has he had access to witness and police statements.
Dr. Baden provided a diagram of the entry wounds, and noted that the six shots produced numerous wounds. Some of the bullets entered and exited several times, including one that left at least five different wounds.
The autopsy results seem to only further complicate a very strange story.
