hymen injury - from autopsy
THAT was an interesting subject that was covered during my discussions with Doctors Dobersen and Krugman as well. Dr. Dobersen went over a book with me, sorry but the name of the book eludes me at the moment. It was a book used in ER's and clinics - and it documents the many different sizes and shapes of hymens. At 45 years of age, I had no idea how diverse they were. ANYWAY, both said the description of the hymen with no evidence of scarring (as if it had been torn apart) was NOT evidence of any damage. That was probably just the way her hymen was formed. That does NOT negate the injury done to her - - she WAS sexually assaulted that night and that is described in detail in the autopsy. Read the autopsy carefully - - the abrasion may have involved the hymen but the hymen was not "torn" that night.
From the autopsy:
"The hymen itself is represented by a rim of mucosal tissue extending clockwise between the 2 and 10:00 positions. The area of abrasion is present at approximately the 7:00 position and appears to involve the hymen and distal right lateral vaginal wall and possibly the area anterior to the hymen."
