Ferguson, Missouri, Police officer Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown with the intent to kill, according to an autopsy conducted by Dr. Michael Baden. The New York Times reports that Dr. Baden was hired by Brown’s family to conduct a private autopsy.
Dr. Baden’s autopsy revealed that Brown was shot at least six times by police officer Darren Wilson. Brown was shot twice in the head. One bullet entered through his right eye, exited his jaw and re-entered his collarbone. He was also shot in the top of his head. Dr. Baden revealed that there was no way Brown could have survived the shooting.
Brown was also shot four times in his right arm with each bullet entering from the front. The autopsy did not suggest that Brown was shot in the back.
Dr. Baden has performed autopsies on notable individuals such as President John F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King. The crime is being investigated by St. Louis County and the F.B.I. Each agency will perform their own autopsy.
Police officer Darren Wilson has yet to be charged with a crime.
