This really needs some careful studying to really absorb it all. I threw this chunk to the side years ago while cutting firewood with my bro. It was a maple burl with mushrooms growing on it. It didn’t even look worth burning. I sliced it, planed it and slapped a 1/2” round router bit in an air grinder, then held on to remove all the grey matter around the brain. The nasal passage, mouth and esophagus appear unobstructed. There is little spinal damage. There is however some damage to the lateral geniculate body of thalamus which leads me to believe that this body wood have experienced problems with the motor tracts that last left the cerebral cortex, possibly caused by extreme trauma after hitting the ground from the 100 foot fall. Notice also the hardening of the superficial temporal arteries. Upon close observation one can notice that the left internal jugular vein is constricted. The cause of death is therefore determined to be the complete severing of all capillaries causing excessive hemorrhaging and eventual oxygen depravation.
