Autopsy report (p. 2, para.V) refers to abrasions and contusions on JH, but not describing as post-mortem in that section.
Can anyone find ref to them as 'post mortem' elsewhere in rpt?
Never mind, I think we've got answer from below, that her abrasions & contusions, if made when LEOs moved her, were not post-mortem.
Based on A/Rpt's "Evidence of Medical Intervention" describing
in tech med lingo about ~4 procedures (presumably) by EMTs and/or hosp ER or OR, appears she was not pronounced dead at the scene.
Thx in adv.
The fact that the driver was not pronounced dead at the scene does not mean that she was alive, and the fact that medical intervention was attempted does not mean that she was showing signs of life. If the driver had been shot through the heart, I do not think it unreasonable for a layperson to describe her as being dead. As for the "post-mortem" term, the Denver Post said this:
This statement by the DP seems to be in error, as the medical report said that only some of the abrasions "appear postmortem"."The autopsy said Hernandez had an abrasion on her nose and two abrasions on her chest, all postmortem."
Whatever the appropriateness of the term "post-mortem", it seems likely that the driver sustained the abrasions after she was shot through her heart and not before.
