Retired government chemist Lun Tze-shan testified yeterday that on November 8, 2003, he went to the scene of the incident to analyse the blood pattern distibution. He determined that the blood splattering pattern were concentrated mainly at the end of the bed. Therefore he believed that the attack should happen at the lower position at the end of the bed . At the time Robert Kissel wa either sitting or lying down.
Since there were no blood stains on the walls farther away from the end of the bed or on the ceiling, he believes that the perpetrator did not use an elongated weapon. Furthermore, there were no blood smears on the wall that might indicated a struggle, so he believes that the deceased did not offer any struggle during the attack.
In addition, the police found a cushion that contained large amounts of blood from the deceased. The blood spread from one side onto the other side. Dr. Lun pointed out that when a person continuously hits an object containing blood, the blood will splatter all over and that is consistent with the pattern on the cushion.
