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

On none of the other injuries did we see any soot, stippling or unburned gunpowder particles. No evidence of close range discharge of a firearm on any of these gunshot wounds except for the one you had just mentioned on the hand.

And again, we have to preface that by saying I did not have the clothing to inspect at the time of this autopsy. And furthermore, this could have been the third autopsy, the body has been embalmed, washed several times. A lot of that stuff can start to wash away. Stippling doesn't, but soot can.

And the other thing to say is the gunshot wound to the top of the head, Michael Brown had pretty thick hair. So a lot of times hair can actually prevent deposition of soot, stippling.
