Chief pathologist on Evara’s autopsy

The cause of Rosalyn Albaniel Evara’s death cannot be established until all findings, including the tissues of the body that were taken to be analysed, are examined.

A full autopsy was conducted on the late journalist’s body yesterday. This was upon the coroner’s court order, says chief pathologist, Dr Seth Fose.

They will now prepare for the report that will be ready in two weeks’ time, while preliminary findings will be released to the coroner’s office at the end of this week.

Dr Fose also stressed that there is a possibility of facing difficulties in a full examination or analysis following the autopsy, considering that the body has already been embalmed.

The doctor reiterated that it is important for a body to go through autopsy as soon as possible to find the cause of death; this is to ensure that other procedures do not interfere with the analysis.

The homicide unit has also revealed that the case is now open and will follow through process after the report is brought out through the coroner’s office.
