Okay. So now he's still laying on his stomach and now we have an image of the left forearm and we can see an injury here. I think if you go on we can actually get a better picture of that. Perhaps, okay, a little bit better here.
So we actually call this a superficial incised wound. In our opinion, a sharp force injury, it is not blunt.
Whatever caused this was something sharp, like a piece of glass, a piece of jagged metal, a knife, something like that, something sharp. The way that we can tell that is the edges of this are very clean. We don't see any abrasion along it.
I think what you see here that is kind of dark along the edge of this is actually some vital reaction, he is getting a little inflammation from it. It doesn't take long for a wound to become inflamed. I think that is what we are seeing here.
And again, it is a little dry, it is eight days later, he has been embalmed, so it is a little different than it would look during the first autopsy.
And then along the same trajectory right here, you can pick up kind of a faint scratch along with it. So again, this is consistent, in our opinion, with something sharp.
