Summary
  • "No one has performed more autopsies in high-profile cases than Dr. Cyril Wecht. During the past four decades, he has dissected more than 16,000 bodies to determine how and why they died. He has testified in hundreds of trials and exhumed dozens of corpses. He's investigated the deaths of presidents and princes, coal miners and Hollywood stars."
  • "In this new book, Dr. Wecht and true-crime journalist Dawna Kaufmann present five fascinating mysteries. Why did Anna Nicole Smith's twenty-year-old son die? Was Anna Nicole's own demise just months later associated with her son's death? Dr. Wecht considers whether someone attempted to get one or both of them out the way. Who killed twelve-year-old Stephanie Crowe, found stabbed to death in the hallway of her home? Dr. Wecht's insight helped straighten out a baffling whodunit that had local law enforcement going down the wrong path. Should David Westerfield be on death row for the murder of his seven-year-old neighbor, Danielle van Dam? What were the mistakes and victories in this trial? During the horrific aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, did medical professionals at a distinguished New Orleans hospital purposely inject elderly patients with heart-stopping medications?"--BOOK JACKET
