Sources Used and Why?
The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher by Kate Summerscale
The Great Crime of 1860 by Surgeon J.W. Stapleton
Suffocation
Around lips, eyes, and looser textures of the face there were marks of suffocation.
Slight discoloration of the skin was not noticed at the post-mortem examination
The small vessels would gravitate towards the head and face, filtering downwards slowly through the muscles attaching
"The whole aspect of the face bore witness to the suddenness of death, and bid defiance to the supposition of a suffocation struggle."
Nor on any other part of the body was there found one evidence of suffocation; No mark, no bruise to indicate resistance.
General Wounds
• Sharpe blade passed diagonally over fifth rib near nipple area; (Left side of the body)--> Causing severing of cartilage of sixth and partially seventh rib.
• Thrust into chest cut membranes covering heart (though only grazed w/o entrance).
• Penetrated diaphragm.
• Blade when taken out of the body twisted or wrenched around --> clear through the torn appearance of muscular fibers and the scarped irregular appearance of exposed ribs.
• The angle of the cut done with harsh movements.
• This single cut drained the large vessel of blood.
• Little blood came from the stab wound --> None found stuck to the side; None was found on the nightshirts
• Blood flowed unto his hair from left temple: shows that body was found on left side and wrapped in blanket.
• After death head was found at a downward position.
• “The child’s face wore an expression of repose.”
• Boys face was at peace; Repose= Peace
CONNECTION TO CONSTANCE KENT
To make it very CLEAR this is symbolism not created by either Kate Summerscale or J.W. Stapleton. Both books written by the authors are non-fiction therefore the connections that I found between the wounds on Saville's body and Constance Kent are just merely unfortunate.
Excess Wound Description
• Knife grazed the stomach (similar to heart wound)
• Was done by using a knife to thrust down the body of the child into the closet
• Blood remained in the child's capillaries when thrust and enveloped in the blanket, head foremost, head downward, into the filthy grave that yawned for him
• Upper lip; retracted by a mortal spasm; had stiffened around upper teeth, unbruised, unhurt, unpressed.
• Tongue not forcibly protruded, no fixed between teeth, not bitten by teeth
• The tongue had fallen slightly forwards on its separation from its attachments to the throats.
• On the left hand; hanging lifeless from the body there were two small cuts
• One almost down to the bone; the other just a scratch - upon the knuckle of the forefinger.
• "But upon the forefinger of the left hand - strange, most strange they should be there.

Description of Wounds on Saville Kent's Body
By: Marife Baragano R1
Medical Examination IOP
Review of General Wounds with connection to Constance Kent:
• “The child’s face wore an expression of repose.”
• Boys face was at peace; Repose= Peace
Suffocation: Loss of Voice
Around lips, eyes, and looser textures of the face there were marks of suffocation.
Slight discoloration of the skin was not noticed at the post-mortem examination
The small vessels would gravitate towards the head and face, filtering downwards slowly through the muscles attaching
"The whole aspect of the face bore witness to the suddenness of death, and bid defiance to the supposition of a suffocation struggle."
Nor on any other part of the body was there found one evidence of suffocation; No mark, no bruise to indicate resistance.
Penetrated diaphragm.
"In not one organ of the body was there found a trace of disease or poison."
- J.W. Stapleton
