Dr Alexandrov: Dr Broadbridge slashed with kitchen knife
Created : 5 September 2017
An autopsy has shown that 79-year-old Claire Broadbridge was stabbed twice, most likely with a kitchen knife, before her throat was slashed.
The autopsy was performed at the Forensic Science Center on Monday by Forensic Pathologist Dr Valery Alexandrov.
The two stab wounds, the post mortem revealed, were "superficial" as they were only centimeters deep.
They were discovered on the woman's chest and neck, indicating that she was facing her attacker at the time.
The mortal wound was when the knife was used to slash Broadbridge's throat. Due to the angle of the wound, it was determined that the 79-year-old woman would have been on the ground already when this occurred.
