Deal’s position when struck by this bullet, the trajectory through the model (entrance to exit) was then placed on the straight line from Metcalf’s muzzle position to the impact on the brick. As discussed later, this closely approximates the positions established by using the external autopsy photographs of the entrance and exit wounds left by this third shot. Since the best evidence of trajectory and position is the body itself, no further trajectory work was done with the clothing items. The methods and the results of the photogrammetry work with the hoodie clothing and the perforating shot to the neck follow.
The locations of the wounds on Mr. Deal’s body confirm this time frame. The three shots were fired while PFC Henry Metcalf was standing with both feet firmly planted on the ground and while aiming directly at Mr. Deal. Therefore, the three shots were fired along the same general trajectory. The location of the wounds on Mr. Deal’s body, the location of the bullet chip on the brick wall, and the locations of the spent cartridge cases help confirm this trajectory. Two bullets were recovered by the medical examiner.
