On the evening of the 26th of August I made a post mortem examination of the deceased.
The body was that of a small statured male; it was dirty from a mixture of dirt and of a soot-like substance. The body was dressed only in woolen trousers, and was wearing a steel collar to which a electromechanical device had been affixed. The body also had manicles fastening each wrist, which was affixed to the collar by a chain. These items were removed by me. The skin was dry and greasy; the tissues immediately below the skin were of a clay-like consistency colour and smell, and were quite solid. The body as a whole was unnaturally rigid, and it was determined that there was a thin layer of normal tissues on the exterior of the body.
The body was three and a half feet in length. The fingers were rather long and slender, the middle finger of the left hand measuring three and a half inches along the palmar surface. There were no ring marks on any of the fingers; the nails were long and apparently bitten especially on the left hand. The head is devoid of hair, as well as the arms pits. The colour of the eyes was a yellowish amber. The ears are pronounced and slightly pointed. There were no deformities or marks of any kind such as might be used for identification. The teeth were sound.
On examining the head there was not a normal skull but was a green stone of the appropriate size, printed with characters of an undetermined language or purpose. This stone was highly unusual and will require further testing.
Internally the condition of the body was as follows – – the torso was made of a claylike substance that was hollow internally, and contained a dark fluid of a viscous consistency that does not fully conform with human blood.. The hollow cavity extended into the limbs and through the chest cavity. No organs of a conventional nature were contained in the body. There was a puncture wound through the chest cavity, originating from the front just to the left of the median line of the body, at the level of the armpits. The weapon transversed the body, creating an exit wound in the back. The wound channel was of a diamond cross section, to approximate the blade geometry of the weapon used to inflict the wound.
The immediate course of death was haemorrhage from the wound.
