Waco police vs biker shootout autopsy results finally released, 3 months after cops killed bikers, still no official word on who shot who, cops look guilty as hell

Waco Sgt. Patrick Swanton declined to comment, citing a gag order in the criminal case of Matthew Clendennen, one of the 177 people arrested and jailed following the May 17 shootout on allegations of engaging in organized criminal activity.

All but two of the 177 have been released, and no one has been formally charged.

The autopsies were performed by the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Science in Dallas.

 The reports found that:
 Daniel Boyett, 44, was shot twice in the head and once in the abdomen.
Wayne Lee Campbell, 43, died from a gunshot wound to the head.
Richard Matthew Jordan, 31, suffered one gunshot wound to the head.
Richard Vincent Kirschner Jr., 47, was shot three times.
Jacob Rhyne, 39, died of gunshot wounds to the neck and abdomen.
 Jesus Rodriguez, 65, died from gunshot wounds to the head and trunk.
 Manuel Rodriguez, 40, died of gunshot wounds to the head and back.
Charles Wayne Russell, 46, was shot once in the chest.
Matthew Smith, 27, was shot in the back and in the abdomen.

The news and police are trying to cast the bikers in the worst way in the publicity, mentioning toxicology showing drugs and alcohol in the blood of several of the dead.

yeeeah, not to mention death by lead poisoning you stupid clowns. It's that obvious that the cops effed up, that they haven't charged a biker yet, and can't mention how 18 people were shot, and 9 killed.

Sounds to me like the cops are letting the calendar play out hoping to dilute the effect of the facts over the longest possible period of time

With only two of 177 bikers who were arrested on engaging in organized criminal activity charges remaining in the McLennan County Jail, and the McLennan County District Attorney’s Office releasing some of its evidence to defense attorneys, the scheduled examining trials don’t have the sense of urgency they once did.

Retired State District Judge James Morgan has been given the authority to hear the cases. McLennan County Justice of the Peace W.H. “Pete” Peterson, who was recused in one case, will allow Morgan to hear 16 others filed in Peterson’s court.

 Judge Morgan was appointed to hear the examining trial of Matthew Clendennen after the Hewitt man’s attorney, Clint Broden, was successful in having Peterson recused from hearing the case. Broden withdrew his request for an examining trial on Clendennen’s behalf earlier this week, Peterson said.

Examining trials are normally for those who remain in jail, have not been indicted and who challenge the sufficiency of evidence backing their arrests.

Primarily, the hearings are used by defense attorneys to get a look at the evidence against their clients.
