Some inconsistencies and anomalies in the Autopsy Reports, ID Matrix, and
other forensic material are here noted to make researching this material
a little easier. Though the Autopsy Reports are not directly linked into
this page, the individual references may be found through the numerically
Matrix (or List of
Autopsy Reports for HTML 2 browsers that cannot display tables) and
the alphabetically sorted Collated
List of Mt. Carmel Deaths.
Some dismembered corpses were assigned two Mt. Carmel Doe numbers, as the
body parts were found:
Mt. Carmel Does 33 and 47 B found two to three feet apart;
Mt. Carmel Does 67-5 and 69, approximately two feet apart. These remains
were eventually assigned the identity of Bobbie Lane Howell, 2 years old,
Mt. Carmel Doe 58, excavated from burial in the spent cartridges (allegedly)
between April 27-29, was identified as the fetus of Aisha Summers, Mt.
Carmel Doe 31, whose body was recovered close to the surface on April 22.
Mt. Carmel Does 50 and 61 ("Martin Child"), found approximately five feet
apart. Note: Autopsy Report for Mt. Carmel Doe 61 reveals that remains
were originally identified by fingerprint comparison as Rosemary Morrison.
Eleven commingled bodies were assigned Mt. Carmel Doe numbers, thus: 64,
65, 66, 67-1, 67-2, 67-3, 67-4, 76-5, 67-6, 67-7, 67-8. These remains are
said to represent Paiges Gent, unknown toddler, Lorraine Sylvia, Star Howell,
Cyrus Howell, Rachel Howell Koresh, Hollywood Sylvia, Bobby Howell, Rachel
Sylvia, unknown child, unknown infant.
Mt. Carmel Doe 68 vacant--this number was not assigned to any remains after
One body is identified with two names, by autopsy and by DNA analysis (Mt.
Carmel Doe 64, Paiges Gent/Kara Brittani Little).
Three sets of remains for which Autopsy Reports were written were not listed
at all in the Identification Matrix (31 DE, 31 F, 51 A),
Mt. Carmel Doe 48 was found to be a dog, and no autopsy report is on file
for that number.
Inconsistent use of names:
Koresh's legally changed name (Koresh) and his birth name (Howell),
inconsistent spelling of names (Bobbie Lane Howell vs. Bobby Layne Howell)
As of the date of the ID Matrix (circa August 1994), eight Mt. Carmel Does
had not been assigned identities (31 DE, 31 F, 51 A, 59, 60, 65, 67-7,
67-8). A telephone call in May, 1996, confirmed that no new information
had been added.
A child, identified as a female in autopsy, is assigned a male identity
by DNA analysis (Mt. Carmel Doe 53, "Isaiah" Martinez)
A year after the fire, four persons are missing for whom no remains have
Paulina Henry, age 24
Lisa Marie Martin, age 13
Sheila Renee Martin, age 15
Startle Summers, age one year.
Three extra skulls, catalogued in Autopsy Reports Mt. Carmel Doe 51 A,
Mt. Carmel Doe 31 DE, and Mt. Carmel Doe 67-8, remain unmatched to bodies.
A single dreadlock pony tail with scalp fragment is given an autopsy (31
F), including dental exam and fingerprint analysis, and identified with
MC Doe 31 C, for which an Autopsy Report is not on file with the keeper
of records, McLennan County Justice of Peace, and not listed in the ID
MC Doe 31 C is described in Dr. Peerwani's testimony as a "human leg" (Transcript,
pg. 5975 and 5976),
but no autopsy for Mt. Carmel Doe 31 C is on file with the keeper of records,
McLennan County Justice of Peace, and Mt. Carmel 31 C is not listed in
the ID Matrix.
Unborn fetus is given dental and fingerprint comparisons. An unborn fetus
would not have fingerprint or dental records on file. (Mt. Carmel Doe 58,
listed on ID Matrix, identified with Mt. Carmel Doe 31 B.)
Judy Schnieder's remains received a dental examination, despite the fact
that the head was missing from the body (Mt. Carmel Doe 51).
Inconsistent use of the term "globally charred." It is sometimes used to
mean the entire body is incinerated (as in Mt. Carmel Doe 32), and sometimes
used to mean an entire section of the body was destroyed by fire, (as in
Mt. Carmel Doe 51).
Mt. Carmel Doe 72, allegedly Serenity Sea Jones, does not appear on the
examiner's diagrams of Mt. Carmel body recoveries. However, the McLennan
County Justice of the Peace has stated that Mt. Carmel Doe 72 was found
in the concrete room.
As the bodies were recovered from Mt. Carmel, their locations were allegedly
recorded on diagrams. However, the diagrams contradict each other
concerning the recoveries inside the concrete room. See Map
1 and Map 2, and
note the difference in distribution patterns. Note also
the anomalies in the shape of the concrete room (opening into dining room
on lower left).
Map 1 shows Does 12
and 13 were found in the concrete room. According to Map
2, those bodies were not recovered in the concrete room.
Many people who distrust the mainstream media have turned to alternate
news sources, some of which are Internet based. Unfortunately, many
of these alternate sources of news simply promote an alternate series of
lies. These alternate lies are of course dressed up as "exposés."
But you can easily tell the phonies from the real thing. The information
in the Waco Holocaust Electronic Museum is an acid test.
Does your news source promote Mike McNulty's video, Waco: The Rules
of Engagement or wring its hands because the Davidian law suit against
the government failed? (See Waco
Documentary Is A Hoax! and Waco
Suits for Waco Suckers.) Does your alternate news source carry
promotional pieces about rebuilding the Davidian church in Waco and mouth
nice words about "healing"? (See The
Remember, since ancient times, inquiries into questionable deaths have
started with the bodies of the victims. If your news source won't
give you an honest and full account of the forensic information on Waco,
or if it does not have a link to the Waco Holocaust Electronic Museum ...
your alternate news has failed a fundamental acid test.
