Forensic Autopsy Bill, SB 1189, Clears Senate, Moves to Assembly.

 

SB 1189 by Senators Pan and Hannah-Beth Jackson passed the state senate on 2 June 2016. This bill was the subject of two previous stories in The Weinmann Report, 5/23/16 and 5/30/16. We told how an unusual death was discovered at Patton State Hospital where the decedent was found with his head shoved into a barrel, immersed in 13 inches of water, and how the decedent "had a cloth bag over his head and face." The manner of death appeared suspicious and unlikely a suicide. The examining pathologist said that the cause of death was probably drowning but that the "manner" of death was "undetermined." No specific mention was made that the death may have been at the hands of another. Homicide as a possibility wasn't mentioned.
