The transcripts of the Grand Jury testimonies about the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

Correct, like a bullet. Other things that are done, sometimes I do cultures, that is just looking for any type of bacteria or viral packaging that may be in the body, that may be the cause of death. Medical records, if they are present, I will review those as well and sometimes I have to use histology, which is looking at actual tissue that has been processed to be able to look under a microscope, where I look under the microscope and then I can make a diagnosis of different type of disease changes.

So those are kind of the basic things that go into an autopsy and as I said, sometimes all of those things are used, and sometimes bits and pieces are used, but more the most part complete external examination, internal examination and the toxicology, that's pretty much routine on all cases.
