whats curious is how it was shot... there was residue on the right hand and right side of the head. was his arm held up? shot, failed, but the residue still collected on his body? what about the culprit? the specifics of the case are so sketchy... wish i knew the full scenario...

Preliminary autopsy says the victim was injured several places (but particularly; he has a fracture of the right wrist. And also, an injury to the back of his head.) That said, I'm toying with the idea that Philip had the gun out and someone ups and clubs him across the back of his head with the cane. Or cracks him in the wrist to disable the gun and/or disarms him.
The weapon discharges harmlessly.

Now.. the damaged round is noted in the report as having been fired. Which makes me wonder if the gun fell from his hand at some point. I'd bet when he sustained the wrist injury.

Residue on the right arm means he was holding the weapon in his right hand.

Has the victim been tested for powder residue on his hands/skin/clothing?
If so, what were the results? If not, is it possible to have this analysis done?
