The autopsy results of Jamie Rose Bolin have been made public. You may not want to read this as some of the details are quite disturbing…
OKLAHOMA CITY — A 10-year-old girl who prosecutors say was killed by a neighbor who wanted to eat human flesh died from a lack of oxygen but also suffered other injuries, the medical examiner’s office said.
Jamie Rose Bolin was struck in the head, her neck was cut to the bone from ear-to-ear and she was sexually assaulted, according to an autopsy report released Thursday.
Prosecutors have charged her neighbor, 26-year-old Kevin Ray Underwood, with first-degree murder. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for August.
Police and prosecutors allege Underwood abducted the child as she was going to the library and killed her to fulfill a fantasy of becoming a cannibal. Law enforcement officers found her body unclothed April 14 in a plastic storage tub in a bedroom closet of Underwood’s apartment.
According to a police affidavit, Underwood confessed that he killed Jamie.
Police and prosecutors allege Underwood struck Jamie in the head with a cutting board, then smothered her with his hand and duct tape. They also accused him of trying to decapitate and possibly molesting her corpse.
The autopsy report supports all the descriptions but the post-mortem sexual assault, which a deputy state medical examiner said would be difficult to determine.
Dr. Inas Yacoub found that the girl suffered blunt force trauma to the back, right arm, right thigh, left thigh and left ankle, as well as the top of the head.
Underwood’s trial can’t come soon enough.
