Five experts on forensic medicine carried out the autopsy on Luis Donaldo Colosio's body, who was the PRI's presidential candidate in 1994.

They determined that the cause of death was a wound produced by a firearms projectile, which penetrated the skull.

Today, Mexico's Publishing Organization (Organización Editorial Mexicana) has released exclusive footage from the autopsy of Luis Donaldo Colosio, who was murdered on March 23, 1994.

 

According to the material, signed by Enrique Hernández and Noel F. Alvarado, the experts explain that the injury in the abdomen didn't damage any vital organ and that it only damaged “skin, subcutaneous cellular tissue, and muscle exclusively, without penetrating into the cavity.”

The video shows how the experts measure the entrance and exit orifices of the projectile.

 

The Sol de México, Mexico's Publishing Organization, emphasizes that for years, Mexico's government kept this footage a secret.

In the video, you can see two doctors and at least two photograph experts, as well as two cameras, that register the autopsy step by step.

 

The majority of the videos published by Mexico's Publishing Organization where obtained through the National Transparency, Information Access, and Personal Data Protection Institute (Inai).

On December 2018, the Inai announced that the video footage Mario Aburto's testimonies had to be released, as well as the testimony of Othón Cortez, a man involved in the case.
