The Sunday Express has published the CCTV analysis video of Mark Blanco’s fall from the balcony.
Dr Corrina Cory, expert in Injury Biomechanics continued experiments from the findings of her preliminary feasiblity study into how Mark fell. You can see these results on the video linked above. She worked on the two scenarios concluded by the HSCC investigation in November 2008:
Scenario 1 : CRIMINAL ACT – Mark Blanco fell as a result of a criminal act of another or others.
Scenario 2 : MISADVENTURE – Mark Blanco jumped deliberately but did not intend to harm himself to any degree.
Dr. Cory worked with sophisticated scanning, 3-D modelling, the original CCTV and human modelling simulations. Her findings were passed to Professor Wassersug, world expert in Neurobiology and Anatomy. His report concludes:
“Given the nature of his (Mark’s) injuries, the two most likely explanations are that he was backed into the railing and pushed over, or that he was not conscious, and was dropped over the railing.”
As stated in Dr. Cory’s notes, the body models were overlaid for the frames of the CCTV that were the clearest. The position of Mark by the lamp post was not stated to be his final resting place. Mark’s feet ended up nearest the lamp post, as stated by several witnesses.
“We have now moved this case from suicide or accident to unlawful killing,” Michael Wolkind QC. Legal representative of Sheila Blanco, Mark’s mother.
The Met. have not yet responded to these reports.
