- Two vaccination scars over the left, upper arm
- An old, curving scar around the outer aspect of the right elbow
- There was scars representing possible calluses or treated warts over the inner aspect of the tips of both thumbs
Dr Hunt had a sizable audience to witness the post mortem. They included the Chief Investigating Officer DCI Young, 4 SOCOs and 3 detective constables. The presence of the old curving scar must have produced some interest I would have thought. This wasn't a case of Dr Hunt just noting it and then failing to appraise DCI Young on a later occasion because everybody was there!
Surely the police would have said to Dr Hunt 'I think we need to check this out before you write up your report'. They could have approached Dr Warner and Mrs Kelly to find out some background as to why the scar was there. In fact it was the result of an accident in late 1991 that led to surgery and then physiotherapy being carried out.
We know that Dr Hunt wrote his preliminary report for the coroner on Saturday 19 July. It very much looks as if no subsequent investigation into the presence of the scar was carried out after the post mortem, at least there is no public record of this. The scar wasn't discussed at the Inquiry.
If it hadn't been for the publication of Dr Hunt's report last October we would have been none the wiser as to the presence of 'an old curving scar'.
