My belief would be that there is no evidence to connect prior abuse to the murder. There could still be a connection, but theres no evidence for it.<quoted text>
OK, I will buy that. The autopsy report is very vague as far as the sexual abuse and prior sexual abuse, so, that is the reason for my stand also, about the sexual abuse at the time of the murder.
So, it is your belief that IF there was prior sexual abuse, it had nothing to do with the murder? IF that is the case, there must have been some very strange things going on in that house prior to the murder.
The autopsy report is essentially a collection of facts and a cause of death. As a collection of facts, the autopsy report is pretty clear; the problem is with how those facts are interpreted. However, I think everyone agreed that the victim penetrated with a finger, or missing end of the paintbrush at or near point of death. Im not aware of any dispute regarding this. The interpretation of prior abuse is controversial and has not yet been settled one way or the other.
