Coroner's Report -- Const.
"I have also examined the body of Michael
Scanlon, and found external wounds, apparently caused by the penetration of
bullets. One on the right hip, one on the top edge of the sternum, one on the
right shoulder, and one on the right side. On opening the chest I found a bullet
resting against the inner surface of the sternum, or bone of the chest; before
lodging in that position the bullet had entered the body on the right side,
crushing through the eighth rib, and passing obliquely through the right lung,
carrying with it pieces of fractured bone, making a large wound through both
lobes of the lung. Death must have rapidly followed such a wound from internal
hemorrhage. This closed the inquiry."
