The Autopsy Reports
One day after Malice
Green's death, without waiting for the results of the toxicology reports, Dr. Kahlil
Jiraki announced that Green had died of Blunt Force Trauma to the head. During trial
testimony, Jiraki stated that the cocaine later found in Green's system had no more to do
with his death than "the color of his eyes". During this testimony, Jiraki also
stated that he had never ruled cocaine to be the cause of death in anyone with as small an
amount of cocaine as what Green had. NOT TRUE.
Three months before the death of Malice Green, James Anthony Brooks died after a similar altercation with suburban Detroit police. Dr. Jiraki performed this autopsy as well. Although Brooks had MORE injuries than Green and LESS cocaine in his system and NO alcohol, Jiraki ruled COCAINE ABUSE to be the cause of Brooks' death.
The following are copies of portions of the Green and Brooks autopsies. Note: besides the injuries and cocaine, etc., noted on the following pages, Malice Green also had an enlarged heart (one third larger than normal by weight) with dilated chambers, and hardening of the artery to the heart.
