Result of the Autopsy

An autopsy was performed to determine the cause of death of the victim. The examiners said that Clarke’s death was a homicide and there were “multiple blunt force trauma” injuries to the face and chest found in his corpse, according to a report published in Law & Crime.

Meanwhile, police said “Detectives at the time conducted several interviews with potential witnesses and identified a person of interest. The murder weapon was located; however, the processing of the object did not reveal any leads. No arrests were made, and the case went ‘cold’ in 2004.”
