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

What I did first was examine the outside of the body. And to examine the head, the front, the back is important to make sure that there was, there wasn't any kind of injury or perforation of the back that could be overlooked if one doesn't look at the back.

Then a second autopsy often is easier than the first because the incisions have been made, the ribs have been cut through, the skull bones have been cut through to get to the brain. So in one sense it is easier, of course, it doesn't tell you as much as the first autopsy necessarily. Because the first autopsy has changed things around a bit.

So in this situation, when I review the internal organs, they're pretty normal in appearance for the age and his build and all.

There were bullet perforations of the right lung that then coincided, correlated with gunshot wounds on the outside of the body. A large part of the autopsy had to do with reconstructing what the bullet wounds were, where they entered, where they exited, and then to my interpretation two bullet wounds could have been reentry wounds. I couldn't be certain about those until I saw what the official autopsy showed, which is one I received recently, yes.
