Haditha Update: LCpl Tatum’s Article 32 Day 4

As the investigation into Marine LCpl Tatum and his role in the killings at Haditha, Iraq, the testimony turned to the forensics. Lt.Col. Elizabeth Rouse, USAF, a forensic pathologist and medical examiner, testified that she was not able to view the bodies, and she was only able to look at photographs. The photographs were taken by Marines documenting the scene of a battle, not for forensic purposes or for a criminal investigation.

An NCIS investigator testified that a boy had been deliberately executed, based on his wounds. LCpl Tatum’s lawyer countered that the boy could have been huddled at a mothers feet. The investigator testified that there was little physical evidence at the scene.
