Art 32 testimony of (Robert) Shaw (MP) on 07/23/70
Q Now you stated that you were present at the time the pictures were taken and you were present at the time Doctor Neal examined the body. Is that correct? What was the time interval between those two events, if you can remember?
A Well, some of the pictures, particularly those that depict the floor at the entrance to the room were taken prior to Neal's arrival. As we entered the bedroom, I heard Ivory say--
MR. SEGAL: Objected to.
A As we entered the room--
CPT BEALE: The objection is sustained.
A As we entered the room, Neal was asked to wait for a moment while another picture was taken.
Q Now, let me again hand you what was marked as Government Exhibit 53. When was the first time that you saw that exhibit or that portion of the house?
A When I first walked down the hallway and stood at the doorway of that room.
Q What does that picture depict--what did it depict to you at the time you initially saw it?
A A footprint of a naked human foot in reddish-brown liquid of some kind.
Q What was the condition of that reddish-brown liquid?
A It was glistening; I would say it was coagulating.
Q Now were you present when Doctor Neal entered the rear bedroom?
A Yes, sir, I was.
Q Would you please describe for the investigating officer what he did in that room?
A Doctor Neal moved to the side of the bed, as I said, approached the head of the child, and the first thing I saw him do was reach down and take the child by the shoulder and turn her over. He appeared to be looking for wounds in the back of the child and on front of the child.
