surpasses There were two wounds upon the body, either one of which would have proved fatal. The wound first inflicted was made by a bullet that entered beneath the right side of its victim's jaw. Crashing through the bone, it splintered it and was itself crushed into a jagged piece of lead an inch long. The other wound was made by a bullet that entered between the fourth and fifth ribs and coursed its way through the heart and lungs. It must have caused death instantly. The Coroner says he doubts that any human being could have fired the latter shot after having sustained an injury such as wasjriade by the first one.
