Until very recently, I was under the impression that the chain of events in this case could be deduced from the autopsy report. Dr. Wecht (yes, Wecht) feels that JBR's death occurred as a result of strangulation during a sexual assault, and that the blow to her head came after that, at a point when she was already dead or dying, and states that it could not have happened otherwise, and he explains the reasoning for his conclusions. If his deduction is correct, then ST's theory is wrong, but it would support either the JDI or BDI theories, Singular's viewpoint, as well as a different PDI theory (and a weird one at that). Without having read the book, my assumption is that Dr. Lee feels that JBR appeared to be dead from the head blow, and that she was alive (but appeared to be dead) while being sexually assaulted, and that strangulation was the actual cause of death. Is this a correct synopsis? If he feels that she was dead while being sexually assaulted, that would definitely support ST's theory, but I don't know how he could come to that conclusion based on the autopsy report. But I'm surprised he believes the head blow occurred first, considering the very small size of the hematoma. Does he state how he came to the conclusion that the head blow occurred first, and is this based on the findings in the autopsy report? Does he explain how she could be alive when struck and yet the hematoma be so small? Does he give an opinion of what she may have been struck with? Does he mention anything at all about the maximum amount of time between the head blow and the strangulation and/or sexual assault, and whether he believes that she was alive at the time when she was sexually assaulted? -- Just trying to make sense of it all.
