82 MEDICAL JURISPRUDENCE (3) That the stature of the reconstructed skeleton was approximately five feet ten inches as calculated directly by measuring the length of the skeleton and by adding to it the probable length of the head and the first five cervical vertebrae and indirectly by using Nat's multiplication factor for determining the stature from a long bone. This height corresponded almost entirely with that of the murdered man. (4) That the age of the man to whom the skeleton belonged was about forty years as X-Ray examination showed that all the epiphyses of the long bones had completely united, but the manubrium had not united with the body of the sternum, while the other pieces of the sternum had fused with each other and also with the xiphoid process (5) That the left 8th, llth and 12th ribs and the right 2nd and 12th ribs were fractured, but it was not possible to state whether the fractures had occurred during or after life. (6) That there were two holes in each of the clothes, saluka, jersey and achkan which coincided with one another, when these clothes were superimposed. They appeared to have been caused by passing some sharp weapon through them. The casts of the reconstructed feet fitted perfectly the pair of shoes sent with the bones.
