D.P., I really enjoy your blog and your insights. An article about a local (Bothell, WA) domestic violence homicide on my blog has turned into a discussion forum for the case, http://wildninja.wordpress.com/2013/05/12/murdering-susann-smith/. Please note that friends and family of the murder victim regularly monitor the discussion thread, so I try to be somewhat sensitive to their situation. Plus her two children are in state custody.
The victim was attacked while sleeping and bludgeoned about the head so badly that she had to be identified by her dental records. But drowning was also a contributing cause of death– her killer dragged her to the bathtub and filled it to ensure she was dead.
The only viable suspect, her estranged husband, who was just arrested for first degree murder over four months after the crime, bought a rubber mallet at the hardware store a few months before the murder. Unfortunately, despite the absolutely amazing skills people have at the WA State crime lab, it sounds like there’s no way to conclusively prove what the implement used for striking was. I’m not even sure there’s any way to prove it was a rubber mallet. This could be a huge issue at trial. Police didn’t make the arrest for months anyway because of a lack of physical evidence despite screaming circumstantial evidence.
My question to you is– wouldn’t that be typical of a rubber mallet? I’ve never heard of a case where the marks from a mallet could be matched up to the marks on the victim. Hammers, yes, but not a mallet. I’m curious to get your take on this if you’re willing to offer it. This is the most relevant document that’s been posted among my article’s comments, http://media.bonnint.net/seattle/10/1033/103371.pdf. Thank you!

For Medico-Legal reasons I never comment on ongoing real life cases.
