I want to relate a small experiment which I finished today. I want to share this here before I mention it at Topix in order to get some feed back. I have taken the dimensions of the skull depression which was given by Dr. Meyers in the autopsy report. I've had this drawn on a piece of paper in my desk drawer and I've tried to match it to the various possible murder weapons. I devised an experiment. I selected a smooth barked tree to mimic a human skull. Without telling him what I was doing this for, I asked my 8 year old grandson to take his dad's 7 iron golf club ( I don't play golf so I had to "borrow" a club) and to swing it at a birch tree. I asked him not to swing his hardest....just to take a moderate swing at the tree using of course the end of club. This left a definite depression in the bark of the tree which was very close to the dimensions of a 7 iron. I wanted to see if an 8 year old could swing something hard enough to depress a skull and believe me, it is more than possible with a golf club. I believe it would be almost as easy to punch out a piece of skull as it would be to make a sizeable depression into a smooth barked tree. The only negative factor in this experiment is that a tree is immoveable while a child's head would give some with the blow.
