    I went through a bunch of articles to try to build a timeline. There are some questionable dates, as some weren't specific dates. Please feel free to update/change or add to this. Think this will help in piecing things together.

    If she were refrigerated and never frozen, would that refrigeration be as easily discernable during autopsy as freezing would or less so?

    thanks,

    Simple answer.................MAYBE!................(see I can be "non-verbose"!)

    BUT.....not for long!


    I mentioned before what I ASSUMED might have occurred in the morgue: total DUHs& some "head scratching" as the scene pictures, evidence & body were examined.

    Starting at the scene: the OCME techs probably were stunned over the insect(s) present & missing! The TOD frequently can be supported by the specific "critters" present, modification of the body's storage/temperature CAN impact that proven entomological sequence. Then the mixed condition of the body also might lend a question as to where the actual death scene occurred.
    A forensic pathologist DID present @ the body recovery scene (inside info!) due to the "weirdness"!

    Refrigeration of the body would slow down the decomposition process BUT will NOT stop it (freezing will stop it), picking up the clues of it would be difficult & again be based on the culmination of ALL data. Refrigeration is NOT as easy to pinpoint as freezing as the changes in anatomy is more subtle (erythrocytes don't "explode").

    Another detail causing havoc with the examination is the effects of the H2O and the animal activity from H2O animals. Then add in the "greenhouse" effect of the bag as the body lay on a hot, sandy beach!

    I looked up a few of the entries above to get links for the mods.

    1/15 - TB last sees her niece at her house http://www.wcvb.com/news/bellas-aunt...niece/35356582

    3/12/15 - MF last sees Bella at her birthday party http://www.myajc.com/news/news/natio...t-polic/nnkTD/

    And I'm sorry, but I had to stop looking and reading the links for awhile. It's getting to me.

    Precious Baby Bella has her name back.
    Still waiting for Grateful Doe to get his.

    from the other thread:
    Sonya610:

    So if they checked the slides for evidence of freezing they wouldn't have said she died "recently" when they asked the public for help identifying the child, correct?

    And if they didn't check for freezing would the body of a baby doe be stored below freezing temps to preserve potential evidence when it has been unidentified for 80 days?


    My comment: (missed the closing thread door!):

    The LE determined what material would be released to the public & when, as mentioned previously....the slides are reviewed some time after the body examination, information from the OCME is provided in an on-going basis to the lead investigator.


    The body could be frozen (more for "containment" vs evidence per se as everything has been removed/organ samples too) or it could have been preserved for burial, I've seen both done.

    During the arraignment the date 5/29 was mentioned. I didn't quite hear why Making it of no use to the timeline lol Thought I would mention it anyway, someone else may remember what it was.

    Timeline is coming together pretty quickly. Some dates may stay tentative as they are based on second retellings of what RB said to various people.

    Big thanks to BUF for starting it

    It might be helpful to specify "MF last saw Bella at MF's birthday party" -- the "her" reference is unclear (most of us know that Bella's Bday is in Aug., but maybe not everyone does). The same for the "TB sees her niece at her house".
