Jeffrey MacDonald - The Autopsy Reports
E-mail Discussion Lists

Thomas Noguchi, MD was the pathologist hired to do an Independent Review of the reports of the victims, he writes the following report.

"Based on my review of the autopsy reports, photographs, and investigative reports and at scene and the reviews of others, the following is my opinions and medicolegal interpretation of the wounds and injury patterns.

Colette MacDonald:

(1) Three types of weapons were involved in the attack on Colette

(A) A blunt object with a square contact area
(B) A knife
(C) An ice pick

(2) The wounds were inflicted while she was alive.

(3) The three types of wounds were inflicted within a short interval of time.

(4) The blunt force injuries are on the right side of the face indicating that the assailant
was left handed.

(Regarding the above, it is interesting that Jeffrey was right handed. However, Greg Mitchell was left handed.)

Kimberly MacDonald:

(1) Two types of weapons were involved in the attack on Kimberly:

(A) A blunt object with flat surfaces.
(B) A knife

(2) The wounds were inflicted while she was still alive.

(3) Most of the injuries are found on the right side of the body.

(4) The blunt injury to the right side of the face was inflicted first.

(5) The blunt force injury was delivered by a left handed person.

(6) The wounds were inflicted within a short interval of time.

Kristen MacDonald:

(1) Two types of weapons were involved in the attack on Kristen:

(A) A knife
(B) An ice pick like piercing object.

(2) The injuries were sustained with she was still alive.

(3) The ice pick type wounds were inflicted first followed by the stab wounds on the chest.

(4) The stab wounds in the back were inflicted after the injuries to the front of the body.

Additional ice pick type wounds were inflicted on the chest as she was dying.

(5) There are linear wounds on the neck which appear to have been caused by a constrictive force delivered by a ligature, such as a thin rope or a heavy string.

Based on the sequence of injuries and the types of injuries on the three deceased, my opinion is that there were multiple assailants, at least one of them whom are left handed, and carrying a blunt object, a knife and an ice pick type object are involved. The activities appeared to be well coordinated."
