Male skull traumatised by at least one gunshot wound, entrance in the left inferior segment of the parietal bone with a left-right trajectory and probable exit on the right parietal.

During the excavation of this individual I gat the skull bone fragments from the bottom of the burial, there was a few parts of decomposed soft tissue in liquefactive phase. So  the reconstruction of the skull was primordial to ensure the reason about the cause of the fragmentation, post mortem or peri mortem?

The answer is: at least one entrance in the left parietal bone and then, during the  decomposistion occurs the post mortem fragmentation. the burial was transformed by animal like coyote

it is absolutely disgraceful as a member of today’s society, social networking generation and general TV watcher that I am able or even my two boys are able to turn on the television these days and see an athlete that they look up to knock his girlfriend unconscious and drop her out of the elevator. As it replayed six times in the middle of us watching of last nights football game. TMZ is completely out of control and out of line! As Americans as human beings we should have certain rights to privacy. Domestic violence is something that is very serious and very trumatic to go thru for people all over the world. To simply be able to turn on the television and watch what happened over and over again has got to be the most embarrassing thing for two young people that were obviously under the influence have to watch. Not only that but watch it with the rest of the world. We are all make mistakes as humans and we are able to go through things and hopefully we learn from them and grow. But for no dollar amount should anybody else be able to embarrass someone to the extent TMZ has. We should be boycotting this type of media. They should be fined and someone should have to suffer in someway like these two young people. It’s senseless to think hashtags and retweets are more important than the embarrassment you could potentially cause someone. There are laws that should be made somebody should be in jail for years and years. I went through situations very similar to what I just watched on TV in my early adult hood and if I ever had to go through that with the rest of the world staring at me I have no idea what kind of lifestyle I could continue to live. I pray for this young couple I pray for their family and I pray for their strength but this is out-of-control and has to stop.V.Jackson.

The gunshot wound in the cranium is one of the most interesting aspects of my forensic work. Just for looking how the impact force penetrate the bone and then the observation of the penetrating marks behind the features of entrance and exit.

But for that you have to reconstruct the fragmented skull, That’s the challenge!!
