The New York Times reports that a private autopsy has found that the unarmed teenager killed last weekend by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson was shot at least six times.
One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, who flew to Missouri on Sunday at the family’s request to conduct the separate autopsy. It was likely the last of bullets to hit him, he said.
Now you know why Ferguson police will not release the original autospy report.
Dr. Michael C. Baden, former New York City medical examiner, performed the private autopsy, and says that "In my capacity as the forensic examiner for the New York State Police, I would say, ‘You’re not supposed to shoot so many times.'" A family lawyer says that the position of one of the wounds, on the top of Brown's head, is evidence of an "execution-style" killing.
“That points to a higher likelihood, as witnesses corroborate, that he was surrendering to officers when the fatal shot was given,” said Daryl D. Parks, an attorney for Brown’s family. “That pretty much shows that the officer shot him execution style.”
Stephen Mader, a former police officer in Weirton, W.Va, was fired without severance because he decided not to shoot Ronald D. “R.J.” Williams Jr, who had threatened to kill himself and was holding a gun that turned out to be unloaded.
