St. Louis County Medical Examiner: Michael Brown Was Shot Six to Eight Times, Had Marijuana in His System
St. Louis County medical examiner Mary Case told the Washington Post this morning that their autopsy on Michael Brown’s body found between six to eight gunshot wounds in Brown’s head and chest (and according to Baden, in his right arm as well), and also detected marijuana in his system.
And the next question from many observers is going to be, what did police officer Darren Wilson have in his system. and was he even tested after the shooting?
While Case declined to comment further, citing the ongoing investigation into Brown’s death, another person familiar with the county’s investigation told The Washington Post that Brown had between six and eight gunshot wounds and was shot from the front.
In addition, Brown had marijuana in his system when he was shot and killed by a police officer on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, according to this person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.
St. Louis County said tox report would take 6-8 weeks. Michael Baden releases his autopsy, suddenly hey! Tox report says marijuana!
