In Henri Paul none of that was present – his liver’s reported to be normal size, normal consistency, no evidence of fatty change ... There’s no mention in Henri Paul’s autopsy that there was any smell of alcohol in the stomach ... One would expect there would be heavy smell from the stomach in the course of the autopsy, and this was not recorded ... There is no evidence that Henri Paul was drunk or under the influence of alcohol. Dr David Posey, Forensic pathologist
The bottom line is we really do not have an explanation for where this carbon monoxide level came from. Dr David Posey, forensic pathologist

I see autopsy as the most exhaustive, and final, medical exam that a doctor can provide for a patient. I don’t see autopsy as something horrendous and macabre. Yes, it’s not pleasant, I can tell you. I don’t like it. It’s just that I know how to do it fast, effectively, cleanly and to get the most out of it. Dr Miguel Reyes-Mugica
