Bullet Impact/Trajectory Crime Scene Photos From Michael Dunn Case

DavisSUV-trajectories3-jpg-1.jpg

Hey folks, I've gathered up a bunch of the crime scene photos from the Michael Dunn case, and wanted to share a few of them with all of you.  I don't have much to say about them at the moment, but will likely be referencing them in future posts, on Twitter, etc., so I figured I'd set up a home for them here.

Mostly here I'm including the photos showing the bullet impacts and trajectories, where the forensics analysis team uses orange rods to make their determinations and to illustrate their findings photographically.

One top-level observation--the emplaced trajectory rods certainly seem consistent with a vehicle first engaged with fire from a shooter standing off the right-front quarter panel, then continuing to take fire as the vehicle most past the shooter, and still continuing to take fire as the vehicle recedes away from the shooter.

That said here they are:

The next few photos are of Michael Dunn's Volkswagen, which was impounded by police following his arrest:

A non-functional "display suppressor" recovered from Michael Dunn's VW.

I've confirmed that a non-functional "display suppressor" matching this item both visually and by Model FS22 is available from a company known as TacticalInc.com.

That's it for now, folks. More to follow later, be assured.
