Title: The autopsy pathologists: entrance in head was anatomically lower than exit
Post by: Micah Mileto on June 09, 2018, 06:05:55 PM
On the night of the autopsy, the pathologists sure weren't thinking "above and behind". Anybody who wants to think the small head wound described in the autopsy report was 4-5 inches above the external occipital protuberance and that the autopsy pathologists decided to lie to the Warren Commission about the wound being right next to the EOP to cover up their personal embarrassment for describing the small head wound as an approximation too anatomically low, this is a reminder that we have information from the NIGHT of the autopsy showing that the location of this beveled exit on the skull bone was anatomically higher.

The arrow is clearly pointing UPWARDS, indicating a proposed upwards trajectory

And a summarized autopsy "conclusion" by Sibert and O'Neill in a 2 AM 11/23/1963 teletype, freshly written after departing the autopsy around 11:00 - 1:00 AM and driving to the FBI lab from Bethesda Naval Hospital, reads "TOTAL BODY XRAY AND AUTOPSY REVEALED ONE BULLET ENTERED BACK OF HEAD AND THEREAFTER EMERGED THROUGH TOP OF SKULL. PIECE OF SKULL MEASURING TEN BY SIX POINT FIVE CENTIMETERS LATER FLOWN IN FROM DALLAS HOSPITAL AND XRAYS BETHESDA DISCLOSED MINUTE METAL FRAGMENTS IN THIS PIECE WHERE BULLET EMERGED FROM SKULL.". https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=680 (https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=680)

Again, upwards. The outward beveling on the fragment they received fit onto an area anatomically upwards than the small entry wound in the back of the head they reported.

Dr. Finck arrived late to the autopsy, after the top of the skull was been opened up and the brain was removed. He always said that he could examine the small wound in the skull as an undisturbed perforation in the occipital bone, the perimeter of which was not separated during the examination. But the HSCA claims that both their proposed beveled entry 4-5 inches above the EOP AND a beveled exit notch on the edge of the frontal bone are BOTH visible in the empty-cranium photographs. Their proposed entry and exit were only 5 inches apart. So how can you physically remove a brain through a skull cavity only five inches wide? As neuroscientist Joe Riley pointed out, the HSCA's interpretation of the empty-cranium photographs is anatomically impossible. Also, Humes and Boswell repeatedly described how fractured and brittle the area around the large defect was, and the HSCA's proposed higher entry is right beside the large defect. Would that portion of the skull bone not be among the rest that separated naturally on the autopsy table with "virtually no" sawing?

Some have  tried arguing that this "higher entry wound"  in the parietal bone could survive intact if the pathologists just carefully sawed around it. Some brain removal procedures can indeed happen where the occipital bone remains intact and careful maneuvering of the brain can allow it to be fit through the front. But in those cases, not only is a lot of frontal bone separated, but enough of the left side of the skull to fit your fingers under both temporal lobes of the brain. We know from the best and earliest evidence that the autopsy pathologists officially concluded the single head trajectory was anatomically upwards. Which means that if you believe the entry wound in the autopsy report was actually 4-5 inches above the EOP, then you must also believe that not a lot of frontal bone was removed, otherwise you'd have to explain the beveled exit notch on the open-cranium photographs. And also the open-cranium photographs shows a lot of the left side of the skull intact. No room to explain these issues by saying there was an exit lower near the forehead unless you want to say that was a totally separate lie from the pathologists.
