The results of a private autopsy conducted on the body of Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old who was shot and killed by a Ferguson, Mo. cop on Aug. 9, shows Brown was not shot in the back as previously reported by witnesses.
The preliminary autopsy results show Brown was shot at least six times in the front — 4 times in his right arm, once in the right eye and one shot to the top of the head, according to the report obtained by The New York Times.
Renisha McBride’s autopsy reveals she was killed by a single shotgun blast to the face. The coroner ruled McBride’s death a homicide, but her killer, Ted Wafer, has not been charged.
McBride, 19, was shot when she knocked on a door in Dearborn Heights, Mich., seeking help after wrecking her car in the early morning hours of Nov. 2. The homeowner, Wafer, says his shotgun discharged accidentally after he mistook McBride for a burglar at 2:30 a.m.
The coroner is awaiting toxicology results to determine if McBride was under the influence when she was shot.
The Atlanta Journal reports that the body of a woman found Monday in southeast Atlanta might be Stacey Nicole English, 36, who was reported missing in December 2011.
“The decedent is an adult black female, consistent in age with reported missing person Stacey English,” said chief medical examiner Randy Hanzlick, though it remains unclear whether the body is that of the missing Buckhead woman.
According to the AJC, two men searching for scrap metal stumbled upon the body on Monday in a wooded area less than a mile away from where English’s white Volvo was found abandoned with the engine running.
The body was “in an advanced state of decomposition,” Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos told the AJC.
APD notified English’s family of the discovery. “If this is not her, I have to still be sad because it’s someone else’s child,” said Bernice English Hurks, English’s aunt.
“I can’t base my emotions on what I think,” English Hurks said. The hardest thing now, she said, “is not knowing.”
An autopsy is underway to identify the body and to determine the cause of death.
