Cyril Wecht is DEAD to US!

Somewhat famous coroner and forensic pathologist who researched several famous cases including the JFK assassination.

He was 93 but it seemed like he'd been around forever.

How could I have overlooked that he did Jon Benet's autopsy?

If he did JBR’s autopsy, perhaps his death wasn’t by natural causes after all?

He wanted to join the corpses he loved studying.

93 is "around forever".

He died on Jim Jones 93rd birthday. What a day. I forget if he used to be a good pathologist but then became a "celebrity" one like Michael Baden and therefore, shitty. I think he did.

He was featured as an expert witness on several episodes of Forensic Files and Dateline NBC (and similar shows). I sometimes disagreed with his conclusions.

I'm sure even expert witnesses can be bought though.

Was he a Big Mouth like Noguchi?

Yeah I think so R8. Maybe not as big as Noguchi but he seemed to revel in being a famous coroner also.

Right on the heals of the death, last month, of another pathologist, Werner Spitz, who also worked on the investigation of the JFK assassination.

Oh yes! I used to get Wecht and Werner mixed up all the time.

"Wecht and Werner" sounds like it could be an old people's crime show.

Starring Jack Klugman and Tony Randall

Actually we’re going with Klugman and Mike Farrell.
