After reading the autopsy report my thoughts focused on the vicious, savagely brutal attack on Shellie. She was murdered, but my focus was why and how did the killer attack her to savage her and purposely fixated on her head. The autopsy reveals “blunt blows repeatedly to the head.” This viscious and savage attack revealed “multiple blows to the head creating more than 20 lacerations consistent with twenty to twenty-five blows.”
In the account, he not only murdered her, he also nullified her face. She became unrecognizable. I kept thinking why and who had the motive to kill her as he did. I focused on the motive and put myself at the scene of the murder and thinking of all the suspects and why they may have killed her in the factions of destroying identification. Who had the motive and why? That question helped when I looked at the overkill and considered some of the suspects. Why would the murder be to make her unrecognizable when the LE will discover it from the finger prints, or many other ways?
I, myself, came to my own conclusions on the suspect and why.
What the question is, is who killed Shellie and what motivated the overkill portion of the murder? This overkill is new to us and may help us to focus more on the suspects when they ask themselves who had the motive to kill her and why she was murdered in with the added overkill.
The question of the overkill bay be associated with the person who discovered her body. If she could not be recognized, who benefits?
Tell us your thoughts of the autopsy report and your thinking.
