    There have been two autopsies performed on the bodies of Maria Lauterbach and the baby. Onslow County and the Marines have done separate Autopsies. It is expected the family could possibly request a third independent Autopsy performed.

    MARINE AUTOPSY RESULTS:

    Initial autopsy findings on slain Marine: Fetus not born alive

    (CNN) -- A slain Marine's fetus was not born alive, according to preliminary findings from a military autopsy, an Onslow County, North Carolina, district attorney said.

    "The initial opinion is that the fetus was not born alive," Dewey Hudson told CNN.

    The military asked to conduct a second autopsy on Lauterbach following a state performed autopsy.

    Lauterbach's family gave its approval for the Marine autopsy, which was completed Tuesday, Hudson said.

    Hudson also said the military autopsy involved some procedures not done by the state, including reconstruction of Lauterbach's skull. The state autopsy indicated that Lauterbach died from a blow to the head, contradicting a note Laurean left for his wife saying that Lauterbach slit her own throat during an argument.

    The military is performing further tests on a lung tissue sample to determine whether the fetus' lungs contained oxygen, he said.

    If oxygen is found, it would mean the baby took a breath. In that case, Hudson said, Laurean could face a second murder charge. North Carolina does not allow murder charges for suspects accused of killing a fetus

    Additional tests are being conducted to determine if Laurean was the fetus' father, Hudson said.

    --->>>Great thread SS. Wonder how this would affect Mexico and its standing on not returning the POS for TWO murders instead of one, for death penalty for each one?

    Can't wait for updates on this NEW turn of events.

    Nothing in the findings will affect how International Laws are going to be upheld. It is a "done deal" with Mexico now. If Cesar had killed his entire unit...the outcome would be the same for him crossing over into Mexico. No Death Penalty could be used if they agree to extradite.
