The head bash was a closed scalp injury. There was no laceration or cut on the scalp- so no external blood was seen. There WAS blood- inside her skull. There is some evidence it may have oozed a bit from her nose and mouth, but was not stated as such in the autopsy report. Instead, a "tan mucous" was noted on her right sleeve (her head cocked to the right supports this) and in her nostrils. There is also a possibility that there was some droplets of blood (not a large quantity) on a pillowcase in her bedroom. Patsy was said to have commented to LE while examining JB's bed "I don't see any blood, do you?" LE also asked Patsy whether JB was prone to nosebleeds. It is this lack of significant observable blood that makes me believe that the head bash came first, and was closer to the strangulation and death than many believe. Had she lived longer, blood would have seeped from her nose, mouth, even her ears. We also have to consider blood may have been cleaned away just like the blood that was wiped from her pubic area and thighs. An odor of bleach was reported in JB's bathroom. And LE asked Patsy whether JB was prone to nosebleeds. When examining JB's bed and room with LE, Patsy was said to have commented "I don't seen any blood, do you?" I am nit sure if she made this comment before or after being asked about the nosebleeds.
