(NEWSER) – Two different autopsies, two different conclusions: The official St. Louis County autopsy of Michael Brown, killed by officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, indicates the Ferguson teen was shot at close range in the hand—contrasting with results of a private autopsy released Aug. 18 that said Brown had no injuries suffered up close. "[The new report] does support that there was a significant altercation at the car," St. Louis medical examiner Michael Graham tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
He added that the report showed Brown's tissue was found on the exterior of Wilson's squad car on the driver's side, which "fits with everything else that came out. There's blood in the car, now skin on the car, that shows something happened right there." The autopsy's toxicology report also says that Brown had marijuana in his system.
