Attorney: So, doctor, you determined that a gunshot wound was the cause of death of the patient? Doctor: That's correct. Attorney: Did you examine the patient when he came to the emergency room? Doctor: No, I performed the autopsy. Attorney: Okay, were you aware of his vital signs while he was at the hospital? Doctor: Yes, he came in to the emergency room in shock and died in the emergency room a short time after arriving. Attorney: Did you pronounce him dead at that time? Doctor: No, I am the pathologist who performed the autopsy. I was not involved with the patient initially. Attorney: Well, are you even sure, then, that he died in the emergency room? Doctor: That is what the records indicate. Attorney: But if you weren't there, how could you have pronounced him dead, having not seen or physically examined the patient at that time? Doctor: The autopsy showed massive hemorrhage into the chest, and that was the cause of death. Attorney: I understand that, but you were not actually present to examine the patient and pronounce him dead, isn't that right? Doctor: No, sir, I did not see the patient or actually pronounce him dead, but I did perform an autopsy and right now his brain is in a jar over at the county morgue. As for the rest of the patient, for all I know, he could be out practicing law somewhere.
