Was gunshot w<l>und !atal wound? .

Original .autopsy did not indicate that particular guns'hot wound was a fatal-wO~-ad,? .. ' lPha-e' i-s true.

You re-evaluated and feel it could , have been the. fatal wound?

Yes. To clarify: The term "fatal wound" - it could be fat:al tha.t would be a division of the severeness of the wound, the inju'ry to the body. Naturally, when injury is extensive, th,ere are rnult.iple

.stab wounds involved, one would be most ,fatal' and otl1er . st,ab wn;tnds could be fatal by its,elf, if· ::c medical attention is girven. But. in ligntoI

addi tional stab wounds" by separat'ing wh~ch one is'the fatal one', we oiten find difficulty ,and \,,~ use the term, "could be fatal", and this .:.s a 'categorythat you might also use the~"'ords. "potentially fatal"(
