Rathbun, McPherson, and Broken Glass TLR Broken glass had nothing to do with these Lisa McPherson autopsy photo's. A few months ago I asked a friend of mine who is a Medical Examiner to take a look at the autopsy of Flo Barnett (aka Marry Miller aka DM's Mother in Law) he returned with information that suggested that it was highly unlikely anything but suicide. Something seemed incomplete in the St. Pete Times' most recent article about Lisa McPherson. I would like to add that I normally do not comment on the Lisa McPherson case because I believe it has been settled, I am for the most part pleased with the result that caused years of scrutiny for the Church of Scientology, as well as a settlement that as far as I know was satisfactory to her family. The two things that stood out to me other than Mark Rathbun seeming to only implicate David Miscavige, and his admitting that he destroyed documents in the case to prevent a legitimate investigation. Both are things he would unquestionably have spoken to one if not many lawyers about sometime in the last 15 years, and would have known that the statute of limitations had expired for tampering with evidence. The two things that bothered me most about that particular article where: 1) He mentions broken glass for no reason. 2) The medical examiner had no comment when reached for questioning. And did not confirm or deny any of Rathbun's claims. I can only assume that 1) Rathbun may want to imply that a broken mirror had something to do with McPherson's condition. And 2) The medical examiner is not only smart but wants to move on from this case. The most common memory to me and others about the McPherson case was not that she died of dehydration, but the pictures of the body that seemed to many strange and unexplained injuries that from the original reports where called cockroach bites, or at least cockroach bites are commonly mentioned when talking about McPherson's death. Could Rathbun's claim of a broken mirror have caused those injuries to the body ? He did not go as far as to claim that but I saw no other reason to mention it unless it has something to do with the introspection run down process and for all I know it might. So a few days ago I wrote my friend who is a medical examiner and asked him if he would take a brief look at these autopsy photos and give us an expert opinion. I sent him these pictures: The SP Times article: Death in slow motion: Part 2 of 3 in a special report on the Church of Scientology - St. Petersburg Times and the wikipedia article on Lisa and asked him to take a look at both the "coroner's report review" section and "woods explanation of autopsy changes" section. Lisa McPherson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia with this question to him: I guess my question is : Do you see evidence from the pictures of injuries from : a) broken glass (or something similar) b) cockroach bites c) Both bites and glass d) Neither / something else or just gross dead people stuff. e) I can't tell much from the pictures. This was his reply to me it includes all the information about the question above. I did ask a few other questions but they do not have anything to do with this thread. The only thing that I was able to conclude from the pictures of Lisa being used to is that they where likely shown originally for shock value to get attention for the result of Scientology's insane medical practices. There is nothing in them that clearly shows cockroach bites but there could have been, and nothing at all in the above pictures that indicates broken glass from injuries from a smashed mirror. I will ad that I know of nobody at this time who has suggested that any injury occurred from a broken mirror or from glass. But having gone through years of news articles that interviewed Scientology spokesmen, I see nothing that would suggest that with new information surfacing about the mirror that some Scientology spokesmen would not try to at least imply that broken glass may have had something to do with her injuries. And I feel it is best to stay one step ahead wherever possible. This may be a tinfoil over reaction on my part but thought I would just put it out there.
