What was Found in Tristyn Bailey’s Autopsy Report?
Dr. James Fulcher, the Volusia County medical examiner gave horrific testimony describing in detail the more than 100 stab w0unds Tristyn suffered. Images taken during her autopsy were provided to the judge and attorneys, but the jury and audience were excluded.
Dr. Greg Prichard, a clinical psychologist, testified as to what he had deduced about Fucci from the available evidence. Prichard said:
“He’s a really unique person in a bad way, He’s demonstrating some things that are extremely concerning that we do not see in youth, that we often don’t see in youth murd*rs.”
According to Prichard, in May of 2021, Fucci informed a friend, “expect me to k!ll somebody this month.” Fucci claimed he would stalk his victims at night, drag them into the woods and stab them before acting as if nothing had happened.
“He verbalized to peers very descriptively and similar to what happened to Tristyn Bailey. I would say that suggests to me some rehearsal, perhaps some premeditation, Even if you didn’t have that premeditation, though, he did clearly. It’s there. It’s in his head.”
