Chancellor Allows Independent Autopsy

 Hinds County Chancellor Dewayne Thomas ruled Bul Mabil can obtain an independent autopsy but placed a few conditions on the autopsy.  Judge Thomas held: 

Based upon the foregoing, this Court finds that Karissa Bowley, as the surviving spouse of Dau Mabil, has willingly consented to an independent autopsy of the bodily remains of Dau Mabil to be conducted at the direction and expense of Bul Garang Mabil. The independent autopsy shall be conducted at the conclusion of the investigation by the Mississippi Department of Public Safety and shall not delay, impair, impede, or otherwise interfere with any law enforcement investigation related to the death of Dau Mabil, including but not limited to the investigation of MOPS, the Capitol Police, and/or the Mississippi State Medical Examiner. The Mississippi Department of Public Safety shall notify Karissa Bowley and Bul Garang Mabil upon the conclusion of the investigation and the availability of the bodily remains for independent autopsy. The MOPS shall retain custody of the bodily remains of Dau Mabil for thirty (30) days after such notification is complete to allow for the independent autopsy to be conducted. The independent autopsy shall be conducted only by a pathologist who is at least as qualified as is generally required of pathologists conducting autopsies for the State of Mississippi; the pathologist must be an M.D. or D.O. who is certified in anatomic pathology by the American Board of Pathology and must be competent to meet the qualifications as set forth in Mississippi Code Annotated §41-61-65. All costs of the independent autopsy shall be born by Bul Garang Mabil. Finally, the Court finds that Karissa Bowley, as the surviving spouse of Dau Mabil, has willingly consented to the release of the results of the autopsy of the remain of Dau Mabil; she has further consented to file the same in this matter upon the conclusion of the MOPS investigation. Upon filing of the same on MEC, Karissa Bowley shall notify this Court so that this matter may be closed.

Judge Thomas also dismissed Bul Mabil as plaintiff and substituted Karissa Bowley, Dau's widow, in his place.

Chancellor making up the rules as he goes along.

This should have been dismissed for no actionable case/controversy once the brother was dismissed.

The Judge's effort to satisfy everybody and at least follow the spirit of the law. Nice try Judge, but this ain't over.

The wife can still change her mind, then what?

So what was the big fight about?

Apparently, the DPS has the ball for the first autopsy and any investigation follow up. The successor autopsies will just be a mostly empty body cavity with several previously removed organs.

I don't understand why the proceeding was made into a full-blown trial, with presenting of text messages into the record. Honestly both parties wanted an autopsy, so I dont understand why such legal drama. They should've just agreed on record to the autopsy and called it there. Also the attorney not noticing the other party and misleading the court, how were there not sanctions?

I agree, 7:58 AM.

I am also curious where the independent autopsy will be done. Here in MS or in state where brother lives.

9:39 AM, my understanding is that the brother lives in Texas. If the autopsy is done in Texas, there definitely will be another can of worms opened up because of the body being outside the jurisdiction.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
