A reliable source who doesn’t want her name in print said:
A close examination of her body revealed a lot of lacerations.
In fact, I noticed that the head had a deep cut. When other colleagues also saw her, they said there was a deep cut on her skull, because they saw pierced bone.
Her colleagues, especially the female doctors, were stunned when Dr Thomas was rushed in.
