    Re: Medical Examiner's Report Back On Jon Lacina

    "The report said Jon Lacina died from probable hypothermia with sharp force injuries. The death is classified as accidental, officials said."

    Would that maybe be consistent with a fall on the ice causing a concussion, then leading to him wandering to the old dairy farm?

    I'm sure his family will never get over losing him, but I hope they can get enough info to not have a ton of questions left to be answered.

    Re: Medical Examiner's Report Back On Jon Lacina

    sharp force injuries? is that equivalent to blunt force trama?

    If there are bodily injuries, count me as one who isn't surprised. The story is far too fishy for someone to just wonder off that far off path. I still believe that there is foul play.

    Sharp force would mean he was impaled or cut with something.

    Thats how I would understand it. Blunt force would be from a fall where he hit his head. Maybe I'm incorrect?

    I thought maybe it was another term for the same thing but it sounded a little odd. Disregard my earlier post if that is the case. Obviously something happened that isn't adding up.

    Re: Medical Examiner's Report Back On Jon Lacina

    Injuries produced by pointed objects or objects with sharp edges are referred to as "sharp force injuries." Sharp force injuries are characterized by a relatively well-defined traumatic separation of tissues, occurring when a sharp-edged or pointed object comes into contact with the skin and underlying tissues. Three specific subtypes of sharp force injuries exist, as follows: stab wounds, incised wounds, and chop wounds.

    Re: Medical Examiner's Report Back On Jon Lacina

    ISU student Jon Lacina died of hypothermia, medical examiner says | Des Moines Register Staff Blogs

    Ames, Ia. — Iowa State University student Jonathan Lacina likely died of hypothermia and suffered cuts from a sharp object, the state medical examiner’s office said Wednesday.
    Tom Lacina, Jonathan’s father, said in a statement that he believes autopsy results show his son died in a tragic accident.
    He said is son likely fell down a “dark and likely snow-covered set of steps,” and cut his hands on a glass window in the door when his body or head collided with it. The resulting blow knocked him unconscious in freezing temperatures, he said.
    “The results are consistent with the investigative work of the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation, ISU Department of Public Safety and the City of Ames Police Department indicating no foul play was involved,” he said.
    The medical examiner’s office said it ruled out foul play last month, and consulted with several forensic experts to confirm a cause of death.
    Lacina was last seen leaving a friend’s home near campus on Jan. 22. His body was found April 14 in a building at the old Iowa State dairy farm.
    Lacina, 21 when he disappeared, was a senior majoring in graphic design.

    • Incised wounds - caused by any implement/ object having a sharp edge. This can include knives and broken glass, for example.
    • Stab wounds - which are incised wounds where the length of injury on the surface is less than the depth of penetration into the body.
    • Slash wounds- which are incised wounds that are longer than they are deep.
    • Chop wounds - are caused by implements such as machetes, meat cleavers, swords, axes etc. They are often severe in nature, and can include extensive soft tissue and bone damage. They represent a combination of sharp and blunt force trauma; the sharpness of the cutting edge influences how clean the wound edges are.

    So, striking broken glass at the bottom of the steps would explain the presence of more than one "sharp force" injuries.

    Regardless, may he rest in peace, and his family grieve well.

    Id still like to know how he got out there. I'm assuming it was near impossible to pull any toxicology off him after being there for 3 months...

    Really? People wander off the path all the time. Just ask Drizzle. http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...ght-rough.html


    I can't believe that after the medical report comes out, some people are still convinced that foul play is still involved.

    This one time, after I had too much to drink, I fell on the concrete with the bottle I was carrying. Got myself some accidental sharp force injuries.

    Sorry nutjobs, but no Smiley Face Killers for you.

    There. Even the father of the victim is accepting this for what it is. Can we please put the conspiracy theories to rest?

    To quote myself...

    It sounds like the toxicology reports are remaining sealed, but it was confirmed he bought alcohol the day of his disappearance.
