Hello Trial fans,
Photo #1 called cone, is a 1:1 scale drawing to the medical examiner evidence introduced at trial. The bullet impact area was defined as 1/2" in diameter with the front teeth 2.5" in front of it. It was also stated that LC's mouth was 2" wide at the line of her teeth.
Photo #2 called gun & cone side view is a Colt Cobra identical to the death weapon and placed into the "cone" as far as the medical examiner stated it was.
Photo #3 called gun & cone top view is a Smith & Wesson .38 short barreled hand guns and I do not own a Colt Cobra and used the Smith as a demonstration only and again it is inserted into the "cone" as far as the medical examiner stated it was.
My question: If as the defense claimed there was an "explosion" of gas, blood, teeth and tissue expelled from LC's mouth, where was it possible to have been expelled from? There is only 1/8" maximum spare space surrounding the gun?
