Grand Jury Testimony of [Michael] Newman [physician's assistant student] on 08/27/74
Q And what did you observe when you removed the sheet?
A I observed that he had three wounds. He had two wounds on the chest, one on the left upper arm and he also had a knot on his left forehead that had an abrasion on it. And he did have a pair of blue pajama pants that had some blood on them, and they were torn.
Q Now when you say they were torn, in what manner were they torn?
A The seam was ripped out.
Q This was not a tear in the fabric but the seam had opened up?
A Yes, sir. There was no tear in the fabric, the seam itself had come loose.
Q At what point was the seam opened?
A Approximately mid-thigh and --
Q That's from the crotch down to the mid-thigh?
A Yes, sir. On both sides on both legs of the pants.
Q You say there was blood on the pajama bottoms. How much blood would you describe as being on the pajama bottoms?
A Just a moderate amount, sir. I -- they were not soaked.
Q They were not dripping with blood?
A No, sir, they were not dripping with blood.
