These are scans of the 8 page autopsy notes appended to the Fiske Report. Pay special
attention to the wound list! Cover sheet for the autopsy report, listing cause of death by gunshot wound to
the head. Note that the cover sheet of the report is
signed and dated for the 28th, but a closer look at the lower portion of the eight reveals
a line which suggests the date was altered from a seven. Possibly an honest mistake.
Far more significant is the date on the page that describes the exit
wound out of the back of the head. That page is dated for the 21st, two days BEFORE the FBI teletype reporting there was no exit wound at all!
First autopsy drawing of the whole body. Foster's appendectomy scar is shown. Note the drawing
indicating the blood flow from the mouth. This pattern is consistent with the head lying to the
right with the blood flowing out under the force of gravity alone. IN a real suicide, the blood
pattern would be far wider and centered, as the blood would be pumped out both by residual
blood pressure and the heart's beating, which would persist for a minute or two after the head
This is the top view drawing of the head cross section showing the wound track. This track indicates
that the gun was placed into the left side of Foster's mouth. While not impossible, this position would
be somewhat awkward for a right handed shooter.
Second top view head drawing from the same point of view as previous, but indicating the top of
the skull and the location of the exit wound. While "generalized" the drawing is slightly
inaccurate as when the skull is viewed from directly above, the occipital bone is not actually
visible. This means that the exit wound may not actually involve as much of the occipital as
is suggested by this drawing.
This is the drawing of the head front and back. IN the rear view of the head, the exit
wound is indicated, above where the occipital bone would reach. There is nothing sinister
about this discrepancy, but it does indicate a high degree of sloppiness in the work.
The wound list. This lists the actual measurements for the location of the entrance and
exit wounds. On plotting these wounds onto the copy of Grey's Anatomy, I note that the front barrel
of the gun would have pressed on the soft palette, triggering a gag reflex. Note that
on the very bottom, above Dr. Beyer's signature, are the boxes which are checked indicating
that both photographs AND X-Rays were taken. Where are they?
Beyer's past history isn't the most reassuring. Indeed he seems to be
the Virginia version of the infamous Dr. Fahmy Malek, the Arkansas
M.E. under Bill Clinton who ignored clear evidence of homicide in the deaths of
and Kevin Ives and in one case ruled that a man who had been beheaded was dead
of natural causes.
Beyer himself, in the case of Tommy Burkett, ignored a broken jaw in order
to rule that Burkett had killed himself with a gun. Despite having shown
the autopsy photos to Burkett's father, Beyer later claimed (as he did with
the Foster X-rays) that they had never really existed. After a second
autopsy, the case was reopened as a homicide.
Likewise, in 1989 there was an autopsy on establishing the death of a man
named Tim Easley. Mr. Beyer, the coroner, ruled that Easley killed himself
by stabbing himself in the chest. He failed to notice a defensive wound on
the man's hand. The case was reopened, and, after an outside expert reviewed
the case, Easley's girlfriend confessed to murdering him.
In short, Dr. Beyer's consistent performance (indeed his "specialty")
appears to be the cover-up of murder by declaration of suicide!
