    & just to add to this, I think they said "traumatic asphyxiation" is strangulation...

    Thanks SeriouslySearching

    Thanks SS. Is the blood from the clothes found in ceiling tile, from the scratches on Clark's body then?
    In other words, since strangulation is the COD, do we assume there was no blood found from Le?

    traumatic asphyxia or crush asphyxia is usually used to describe compressive asphyxia resulting from being crushed or pinned under a large weight or force. An example of traumatic asphyxia includes cases in which an individual has been using a car-jack to repair a car from below, only to be crushed under the weight of the vehicle[2]

    Thank you static.

    I would also like to add this as a consideration too.

    It could be done by a forearm being held down on the throat with the victim back against the ground. A choke-hold. Or it could also be with the victim standing and the hands of the perp crushing the delicate organs in the neck.

    Annie was not a large woman. Quite petite. I don't imagine that it would take much force to cause a crush injury to her neck. JMHO.

    Not offensive at all Harmony. Very good power point slide show.

    I'd wondered if she could have asphyxiated while being in the cramped 2x2 space. If her knees were up to her chest or throat ... but it sounds like that would not have given enough force?

    No, COD was due to pressure strangulation vs positional strangulation, windpipe occulusion. Beyond confirming that the death occurred from the hands of another, that's the sum total of released aka leaked information. More MAY be released OFFICIALLY at a later date but probably not until after the next arraignment of Clark

    Fantastic demo. Death can occur 20 YEARS after act of strangulation? I never even imagined.

    Two details I caught from news shows/reports...

    The traumatic asphyxiation was described as something that could be done with an arm/choke hold or a pipe... so perhaps a pipe was some sort of weapon used? (why else say that?)

    I think it was on JVM last night that someone said clearly her body was cut up and stuffed in the wall... which would explain 1) how even a small person would fit in that duct and 2) the bloody clothes stuffed in the ceiling. I have not seen this detail any where else?
