Hi all - I am just now getting "into" this case... only on Part 2 of the 13 out there! LOTS to catch up on! LOL! but I'm getting there. I just saw this in the Globe - and thought I'd make a separate thread, as I really didn't know 'where' else to put it! Here's a snip from the article:
Brutual truth about tragic "NEW LACI":
While evidence indicates that pregnant mom Michelle Young was strangled by her killer, she also endured a beating so savage that her jaw and skull were shattered and several of her teeth were knocked out.
Newly released autopsy findings reveal that "blunt force trauma" to the head caused the death of the 29-year-old brunette, dubbed the "new Laci" (Peterson)...
Cops say they have no suspects, but their investigation seems to have focused on Michelle's 32-year-old husband Jason, who claims he was a five-hour drive away at the time, visiting his family.
Lawmen say they found two unidentified blood droplets on the seat and exterior of his Ford Explorer and learned he was the beneficiary of a "substantial" life insurance policy.
Police suspect Jason was having a "relationship" with another woman in the months leading up to his wife's vicious murder and he is now refusing to talk.
Now, the autopsy reveals the horror Michelle suffered in her last few minutes. Besides knocking out teeth and crushing her jaw and skull, the ferocious beating caused a brain hemorrhage and left 13 ugly gashes on the back of her head. The bloodied beauty was found clutching a strand of hair, which has been sent to a lab for testing in hopes it will nail her killer.
Hoping this "hair" will lead to the killer! Boy I have a LOT to catch up with... back to lurk mode...
