BR: That the positioning of the duct tape as it was found you can seein the photos there in the scene and the medical examiner's officethat the duct tape is in two different positions, and a completelyskeletonized remains, unless it is in a buried context, once cannotmake a absolute finding as to the exact positioning of the duct tapeas has lost its effectiveness, and stickiness, one cannot make adetermination as to the restriction of that duct tape, and certainlydecomposed remains which they have skeletalized that soft tissue towhich that duct tape was attached, and the movement of those remainsby animals basically precludes anyone from making any scientificconclusion as to the actual position of that duct tape, whether itwas around the areas of the eyes, did it cover the areas of the noseand the mouth, did it just cover the area of the mouth... I in casesthat I've had have only been able to conclude the actual positioningof that duct tape in a case of a burial in which basically it is heldin context by the soil, or in a mummified body in which the softtissues have basically dried out and the duct tape is still adhering.JP: Okay. Doctor, when did you formulate that opinion that you'vejust shared with us?BR: Early on when I saw the pictures.JP: Okay. Specifically what do you mean by early on?BR: When I received the first pictures by Mr. Baez.JP: I don't know the date, Doctor, so I--BR: The photographs were given to me earlier this year, right priorto my report, which was dated February 21st.JP: Was there any particular reason why you did not include thatportion that you've just told us about in your report, sir?BR: I didn't mention it because I just, it wasn't, a non-issue.Because in looking in these types of cases, you just, there's noscenario where you can make a definitive answer, so basically itwasn't asked at that time anything about the duct tape It was justsomething that I noted in my examination.JP: You noted it in your examination, but you didn't include it inyour report.BR: That's correct, sir.JP: Okay. Did you share that opinion with anyone on the defense team?BR: I did.
