Summary and Comment: The autopsy report states:
- The identity of the remains was without question.
- Wounds #1 and #2 were the entry and exit wounds of a bullet that struck between left ear and left temple, passed through brain, and exited the back of the head just over the spinal column, causing massive damage to the brain and extensive skull fractures. No bullet or fragment was found in the remains.
- Wounds #3 and #4: Two bullet wounds to left shoulder. One would contained bullet fragments, the other no bullet or fragments.
- Wound #5: A bullet hit left thigh causing sever fracture to femur (thigh bone). partial jacketed bullet recovered.
- Wound #6: A bullet hit the left thigh just above the knee.
LeBleu was hit with a barrage of gunfire. But who fired those shots? Given the photographic evidence that the Davidians did not return fire during the initial assault of Feb. 28, 1993 (see Who Struck John?), the logical conclusion is that LeBleu was shot by expert marksmen who were not among the Davidians.
Note that the Officer Down Memorial Page states, "Weapon Gun; Unknown type" and "Offender: Committed suicide" without identifying the offender.
