A Prefabricated Death?!
Linda Jordan | Birther Report

When Hawaii Public Health Director Loretta Fuddy, a central player in the production of Barack Obama’s controversial birth certificate 1, died in a mysterious plane crash 2 those of us who are convinced that the birth certificate was forged 3 suspected foul play. Of the nine souls on board, she was the only fatality 4. Of course we were belittled and maybe rightfully so. Planes crash and people die. But disturbing details, about what occurred after the crash, are enough to cause even skeptics to wonder “What really happened to Loretta Fuddy?”

I thought I knew how Loretta Fuddy died. However, after a review of the public record, I had to think again. And again and again. In these documents, Loretta Fuddy has died three different ways from severe internal injuries 5 to drowning 6 and finally cardiac arrhythmia 7, and in four different places, in the fuselage 8, in the wreckage 9, in the waters off of Molokai 10 and on the island of Molokai 11. That alone calls for some kind of reckoning.

But it gets worse. The Coroner’s Inquest Report was signed the same day as Fuddy’s autopsy, December 13, 2013, and lists the cause of death as “Acute Cardiac Arrhythmia due to Hyperventilation”. It was signed by Maui Police Detective Jamie Winfrey, who is also a Deputy Coroner. But Dr. Lindsey Harle, the Maui Medical Examiner, says she didn’t figure out that Fuddy died from cardiac arrhythmia until several weeks to a month after the autopsy. How did Winfrey know the final cause of death was going to be cardiac arrhythmia?

In my mind that’s called putting the cart before the horse or fabricating a cause of death.

Last month I had the opportunity to ask Dr. Harle and Detective Winfrey to shed some light on exactly when that change was made to Fuddy’s cause of death and why. 12 I also asked Harle to expalin how she came to her preliminary finding that Fuddy had drowned.

The Preliminary Cause of Death. Dr. Harle confirmed that drowning had been her original finding, and that she had passed that finding on to Detective Winfrey.13

A perusal of any number of news accounts containing autopsy results will show that preliminary findings are routinely released. But this one wasn’t. The only way you could have known about it was if you had an inside source 14 or made a public records request to the Maui Police Department (MPD). Harle made light of her preliminary finding to me.15 Like it carried no weight because it was preliminary. I agree that not all “preliminary findings” go on to become the official cause of death, but I do not agree that a preliminary finding means nothing. Particularly when it comes to drowning and I’ll explain why.

A diagnosis of drowning, even a preliminary one, is not made lightly. It is a diagnosis most often made by excluding other causes of death but there are distinctive pathological findings consistent with drowning. 16 17 On the other hand, death by cardiac arrhythmia, unless it’s the genetic kind, is virtually impossible to prove by autopsy.18 It leaves no tell tale sign. 19

In order to make a preliminary diagnosis of drowning on the day of the autopsy, like Harle did, two factors would have been key, how quickly the body was recovered from the water and eye witness accounts.

A body found floating in the water, in a state of putrefaction, with no clue as to how it got there, versus a boy almost immediately pulled from the water after several witnesses saw him flailing his arms and yelling, “Help, I can’t swim”, present themselves very differently at autopsy.

In Loretta Fuddy’s case there were eight eye witnesses to her first 25 minutes in the water, 20 four who gave statements.21 22 There was one eye witness to her apparent death 23 and her body was recovered within about an hour. 24 All of this would greatly help a pathologist’s ability to confirm drowning.

Dr. Harle told me she had based her preliminary finding of drowning on “the historical and scene information” she had available at that time and on her “findings at autopsy.” 25 So let’s break this down.

Historical” information would mean Fuddy’s medical records and interviews with family members about her health. Fuddy's brother, Lewis Fuddy said that Loretta was healthy,26 not an anxious person, and didn't have any known heart problems. 27 Obviously whatever medical information Harle had on Fuddy the day of the autopsy was not enough to sway her away from her preliminary conclusion that she had drowned.

Findings at autopsy” is pretty straight forward. Harle found evidence in Fuddy’s lungs and other parts of her body that were consistent with drowning. 28 She also did not see any obvious signs of heart disease or other organ failure that would strongly indicate a cause of death other than drowning.

Scene” information would mean the location of death and any eye witness accounts of the ocean landing and rescue.

United States Coast Guard(USCG) rescue swimmers have said that Fuddy was found floating in the water, in her life jacket. 29 We also know the weather was relatively calm that day. 30 But you can’t conclude someone drowned simply because they were found in the water.

What other “scene” information would be critical? Eye witness accounts. Did a fellow passenger in the water with Fuddy share information with Dr. Harle that would support her conclusion that Fuddy had drowned? Like, “ I saw her struggling as she went under for the third time and then she became unresponsive.” No. There are no eye witnesses who say they saw Loretta Fuddy drowning. Quite the opposite.

Only three of the eight fellow passengers on the plane with Fuddy were interviewed by the MPD. These interviews were conducted on December 11, 2013, the day of the ocean ditching, by Detective Winfrey. Two didn’t even mention Fuddy. No one says they saw Fuddy in any distress or drowning or injured. 31 32 Dr. Harle had access to Detective Winfrey and these interviews before the autopsy.33

There were two eye witness accounts that were widely reported in the news 34 on December 13, 2013, the day of the autopsy. Dr. Harle may have read these reports.

Clyde Kawasaki, the pilot and Phillip Hollstein, a passenger, say that Fuddy exited the plane just fine and was floating in her life jacket. That she had no obvious signs of injury. They were with her for the first twenty five minutes in the water and did not see her drowning or sinking or struggling. When the plane began to sink and the group drifted apart, Fuddy floated off with her co-worker and Deputy Director, Keith Yamamoto. Kawasaki 35 and Hollstein 36 have said they were surprised and shocked when they heard later that Fuddy had died because she had been fine when they last saw her with the group.

The one person who could have provided the most valuable “scene” information to Harle was Keith Yamamoto. He was the last person to see Fuddy alive and the only person to have witnessed her apparent death. But the MPD didn’t think that fact was important and never interviewed him. 37 The MPD also never conducted an investigation into the death of Fuddy, as required by HRS 841-3 whenever there is an accidental death.38 39 40 41 42 43

There was a second hand news account on the day of Fuddy’s autopsy in which Yamamoto purportedly told the Reverend Killilea that he had been holding Loretta’s hand, helping her to relax, when she became “un-responsive” and “let go of his hand”. 44 Yamamoto did not say he witnessed Fuddy sinking under the water, or that her head was under water, or that she was floating face down, or struggling to breath, or choking, simply that she became “un-responsive” and let go of his hand. By the time the USCG swimmers got there, Fuddy was already dead. 45

So, absent any witness to the Fuddy drowning, the only “scene” information Harle could have used to support a drowning cause of death was the fact that she was found in the water, albeit it floating in a life jacket.

Substantial Weight. The Medical Examiner is not required to establish a cause of death, preliminary or otherwise, the same day as the autopsy. Harle could have mulled it over and waited on further test results if she was unsure. But she did not. 46 This is a critical point, because, in conjunction with the fact that eye witness accounts contradicted drowning, it lends substantial weight to the autopsy evidence. Harle came to her preliminary conclusion based on strong evidence she found during the autopsy. Evidence so convincing that she would make that preliminary finding, that day, without waiting on lab results. The pathological evidence of drowning outweighed the medical history Harle had on Fuddy, outweighed strong witness statements that contradicted a drowning death 47, and outweighed her other autopsy findings. None of them were enough to overcome a preliminary finding that Loretta Fuddy had drowned. I don’t think you can just make all that go away and replace it with cardiac arrhythmia. Unless the cause of death was arbitrarily changed.

The Reasons For The Switch. I asked Dr. Harle to explain the process she went through in order to change the cause of death. Her reply,

“On the day of the autopsy, I informed Detective Winfrey that the preliminary cause of death was drowning, …Later, over the course of several weeks and months, additional scene and witness statements were brought to me by the various investigating agencies (including the police department and the FAA), I obtained additional medical history for Ms. Fuddy, and I was able to review microscopic biopsies of Ms. Fuddy's internal organs for evidence of chronic disease. Based on all of the information provided to me and the autopsy findings, I concluded that her cause of death was cardiac arrhythmia, as stated and explained in the final autopsy report. At some point I passed this information along to Detective Winfrey - I do not have a record for the specific date that I passed this information along to her, nor can I comment on when she reflected that change within her own report.”

Harle says it took “several weeks and months” before she changed her preliminary finding. Let’s assume she meant to say “several weeks to a month”, not “months” because she signed the Death Certificate on January 11, 2014, one month after the autopsy. Harle has said that the day she signed the Death Certificate is the date she issued the final cause of death. 48

During that month, Harle says she acquired new witness statements from “various agencies” including the MPD and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). But Dr. Harle could not have based her change to the cause of death on new witness statements from those agencies. There were none.

The MPD confirmed that between December 13, the day of the autopsy, and January 11, the day the Death Certificate was signed, there were no new witness statements. 49 I am also in possession of a public records request to the FAA 50, which asked for any and all documents detailing the rescue effort. The reports they supplied contained no witness statements and they do not say that they are withholding any, as they would be required to do by law. Why would Harle say she had new witness statements from the MPD and FAA, when there were none? 51

So, what’s left to support a change to the cause of death? Additional medical history, microscopic biopsies of her internal organs and lab results.

According to the Maui Chief of Police, lab results were not the basis for changing Fuddy’s cause of death, “Routine specimen testing did occur and bore no significance to the determination of cause of death as is evidenced in Dr. Harle’s final [autopsy] report which was completed on 1/24/2014.” The “specimen testing” here refers to blood work. 52 53

We are left with biopsies and further medical history. Would those two factors be enough to wipe out all evidence of drowning ? I am highly skeptical of that.

Harle’s reasoning for changing the cause of death 54 is contradicted in the record. And the biggest contradiction is found when you look at the signature date on the Coroner’s Inquest report, December 13, 2013, and compare it to how long Harle says it took her to discover “cardiac arrhythmia” as the cause of death, “several weeks to a month” after the December 13, 2013 autopsy.

I asked Detetive Winfrey when she was informed by Dr. Harle about the change to Fuddy’s cause of death, “I’m not sure. I can’t remember if I found out the final cause when I received the autopsy report [final autopsy report was released on January 24, 2014] but my report listing the final cause of death was typed written on March 6, 2014.” Winfrey says she didn’t know what the final cause of death was until sometime in January 2014 but signed the final cause of death on December 13, 2013. 55

Another “cart before the horse”. The MPD issued a Press Release on January 6, 2014, 56 announcing Fuddy’s final cause of death, cardiac arrhythmia, which was five days before Dr. Harle issued the final cause of death.

I wrote a follow-up question to Winfrey (also sent a copy to her Captain) on January 27, 2015, and asked her, “If you did not know about the change in the cause of death, from drowning to cardiac arrhythmia, until you saw the autopsy report, which was released on January 24, 2014, or maybe it was when you saw the Death Certificate dated January 11, 2014 (I assume the Death Certificate said she died of Cardiac Arrhythmia) how could you sign a Coroner’s Inquest form for Loretta Fuddy, on December 13, 2013, the same day as the autopsy, which states her cause of death was “Acute cardiac arrhythmia due to Hyperventilation”?

I have received no response to date.

Closing. Over the last six months, I have extensively studied police, rescue and autopsy reports from the Maui County Police Department , the Maui County Fire Department , the Federal Aviation Administration , and the United States Coast Guard.

I have contacted the Maui Medical Examiner, a Maui Police Detective, the Maui Police Chief and Hawaii Department of Health Administrators, in order to clarify specific facts surrounding Fuddy’s death. I have read every news account I could find and I conducted an in-depth interview with a passenger who was on the ill fated flight with Fuddy. 57

My final diagnosis? The official record and the story we were told don’t jive. 58

There are many pieces to this puzzle that don’t fit. I have highlighted disturbing contradictions in the official record and in the statements of Hawaii officials. My investigation strongly indicates that someone is hiding something about the way Loretta Fuddy died.

I can only guess at what they’re hiding. It could be something as simple as incompetence or as diabolical as murder most foul. I can’t shake this feeling that it has something to do with Barack Obama and his forged Hawaiian birth certificate, but I could be completely wrong.

A word of caution. While I have legitimately focused on inconsistencies within the record, I don’t have access to the whole story. I can’t get to the bottom of it or point to the wrongdoing of any specific person. That’s what a law enforcement investigation is for. I am convinced that enough legitimate questions have been raised concerning the death of Loretta Fuddy, to warrant such an investigation.



Right after take off on December 11, 2013, passengers reported hearing a loud, metallic thud and then the engine just stopped. The pilot glided the plane, landing on water.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s documentation of Obama’s forged documents can be found here:
Mike Zullo, who is the lead investigator for the Cold Case Posse says that Reed Hayes, a Certified Document Examiner in Honolulu, Hawaii produced a 40-page, report concluding that the birth certificate Obama posted on the White House website is completely forged. Obama’s own defense team. Perkins-Coie, a law firm that has been working for Barack Obama for five years defending him against challenges to his birth certificate and his citizenship, has used Hayes as an expert witness. Perkins-Coie will have a very hard time challenging Hayes’ expertise and credibility.

Debrief A/C Commander CG1720 LT (the name after LT is blacked out, CG means Coast Guard and 1720 is a plane identifier number for the CG Hercules.) “ CG1720 arrived O/S at 0220Z …..A/C Commander did not notice if a 121.5 distress signal was radiating. He relayed that the pilot of the downed A/C stated that he lost engine power shortly after take-off as he was making the left turn to head towards Honolulu, after his second attempt to restart the engine failed he prepped passengers and crew for a water landing and had them don PFD’s. He was able to execute a good water landing and disembark passengers prior to the A/C sinking. Mrs. Fuddy was alive but had sustained severe internal injuries during the ditching. She succumbed to those injuries while awaiting rescue resources to arrive.”

“On December 13, 2013, an autopsy on the body of Loretta FUDDY was performed by Dr. Lindsey Harle within the morgue at Molokai General Hospital. The preliminary cause of death is Drowning. Disposition: Pending Final Autopsy Report, Toxicology Results.” (Detective Jamie Winfrey, Deputy Coroner, MPD @ 1028 hours [10:28 am], December 13, 2013).” The autopsy on Loretta Fuddy began at 0700 hours [7:00am]. All eye witness accounts confirm Fuddy was wearing a life jacket that kept her afloat.

January 6, 2014 Maui County Police Department Press Release

Maui Fire Department Captain “Fuddy, 65, was among nine people in a Cessna that crashed into the ocean Wednesday, shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport on the island of Molokai about 3:15 p.m. The eight others on the plane, including the pilot, were rescued, but Fuddy "remained in the fuselage of the plane," Honolulu Fire Capt. Terry Seelig told KHON-TV. "It's always a difficult situation when you're not able to get everybody out."

“On Thursday, Lt. William Juan with the Maui Police Department said that Fuddy's body had been recovered from the wreckage and that an autopsy would be conducted.”


I had emailed the Sheriff and DOH Administrator of Kalaupapa and asked them to confirm if they had conducted an investigation into Fuddy’s death under HRS 841-3. No response. It was not until part 1 of this article was published, in fact the very day, that Janice Okubo, Hawaii State Department of Health, replied, “In accordance with Hawaii Revised Statutes 841-3, an autopsy was conducted and the report is available from the Maui County Police Department. The unattended death occurred on Molokai and the Maui Chief of Police is the Coroner for Maui County.” October 29, 2014.

I appreciate Dr. Harle taking the time to answer my questions. She was very courteous.


Inside Edition was the only news outlet I could find that reported Fuddy had drowned and they did it one day before the final cause of death was officially signed. Clearly they had an inside source, to have known about the preliminary finding, but why did they not know about the official cause of death? “The drama unfolded a half mile off the coast of the Hawaiian island of Molokai. The passengers stayed calm and waited for rescue. But one 65-year old Loretta Fuddy, drowned despite wearing a life jacket.” Inside Edition January 10, 2014.

“Concerning my own cause of death conclusions, I usually give a verbal "preliminary cause of death" report to the police officers assigned to the case, immediately after I perform the autopsy. This preliminary cause of death is informal and non-binding - it is simply my initial impression based on the historical and scene information I have available at the moment, and my findings at autopsy….On the day of the autopsy, I informed Detective Winfrey that the preliminary cause of death was drowning, based on the scene information available to me at that time and on the initial autopsy findings.” Dr. Lindsey Harle

“If the circumstances of death are known, the diagnosis of drowning will not present any difficulty. However, when a body is found in water and no circumstantial details are available of how it got there, the case may pose a difficult problem. In some cases, the diagnosis of drowning cannot be established for lack of definite signs; hence one has to draw conclusions on the basis of exclusion of other causes of death..” (Fatteh at p154) “In every case the diagnosis of drowning should be made by the evaluation of the findings suggestive of drowning, the circumstantial details and the exclusion of other causes of death.” (Fatteh at p164) “A diagnosis of drowning cannot be made without a complete autopsy and full toxicologic screening, histologic analyses of all organs including the lungs, and the diatom test.” (Payne-James, Busuttil and Smock at p250) “In addition to the evaluation of the internal injuries, the role of any natural disease condition in the collapse of the person found in the water should be properly assessed. Adequate microscopic and toxicological studies must be made. Sections of the lungs from drowning cases show evidence of acute emphysema with rupture of many of the alveoli.” (Fatteh at p159) “Histology. Should intravascular fat globules be demonstrated by special staining of lung and brain tissue it may be very useful supplementary evidence in establishing whether a “drowned” person was alive or not on submersion or when trauma was inflicted.” (Plueckhahn at p 206.20e) All available information should be gathered, read and considered before commencing any post-mortem examination. (Plueckhahn at p 118)

“As far as we know, what we heard from Paul Lowe, the coroner, the autopsy results were final, and they determined that the children drowned. There was algae and water in their lungs and their stomach….Drowning has a specific type of signature.”

“Her sudden death shocked her boyfriend and her family, who said that Benjamin, a University of Wales Institute student, was a star swimmer and hockey player who never showed any signs of health problems. Even an autopsy could not point to a cause of death, according to Britain's Daily Mail.”

“The National Transportation Safety Board's preliminary report on the crash said the single-engine plane floated for about 25 minutes before sinking.”

Health Director Loretta Fuddy died of cardiac arrhythmia By Star-Advertiser staff POSTED: 02:21 p.m. HST, Jan 13, 2014 LAST UPDATED: 01:10 a.m. HST, Jan 14, 2014 ASSOCIATED PRESS State Health Director Loretta Fuddy died of a cardiac arrhythmia because of stress following a December plane crash off Molokai, a Maui County police spokesman said Monday. Fuddy, 65, was one of nine people who were on board a Makani Kai Cessna Grand Caravan that crashed into the ocean after take-off about a half-mile from Kalaupapa on Dec. 11 and the only passenger to die. In the water, Fuddy held hands with Health Department deputy director Keith Yamamoto as he tried to help her relax, said Rev. Patrick Killilea, who consoled Yamamoto after the ordeal. "He recounted how he said he helped Loretta into her life jacket and he held her hand for some time," the Kalaupapa priest said last month. "They were all floating together and she let go and there was no response from her." An autopsy was conducted on Fuddy shortly after the crash, but the cause of death was initially deferred. Her death was determined to be accidental, police said Monday.

“[Mark] Miller, Department of Health Kalaupapa Administrator, said Fuddy and fellow passenger DOH Deputy Director Keith Yamamoto were separated from each other by the currents. He said by 4:30 p.m., seven passengers were accounted for but two were still in the Coast Guard helicopter. The male on board survived but Fuddy could not be revived.”

“As far as we know, what we heard from Paul Lowe, the coroner, the autopsy results were final, and they determined that the children drowned. There was algae and water in their lungs and their stomach….Drowning has a specific type of signature.”


“As for the conditions, there was some wind and six foot waves but nothing extreme….” Lt. Weston Red Elk USCG Pilot.

The first witness, Hollstein, does not mention Fuddy but says, “everyone appeared to be okay after jumping into the water” and that the pilot was the only person he observed “to have visible injuries”. Another, Jacob Key, does not mention Fuddy and says that after the plane sank he and his wife “got separated from everyone else…”The third witness, Rosa Key, says she did not know anyone on the plane but “related Loretta Fuddy was seated in the second row in front of her” , that after the plane sank she and her husband got separated from everyone else, and that “The pilot was the only person who she observed with any visible injury.”



Bobbing in the water, Hollstein noticed the pilot and seven other passengers seemed fine. "I didn't want to sit out there bobbing, so I figured I'd take a shot at going to the shoreline." He guesses the swim to the rugged shoreline took an hour and a half. He was surprised to hear later that one of the passengers, Hawaii Health Director Loretta Fuddy, had later died. "She was doing fine out of the airplane," Hollstein said. "Her assistant [Yamamoto] was really watching her. He was taking care of her."

One passenger, C. Philip Holstein, an Army veteran, was surprised to later hear she had died. “She was doing fine out of the airplane,” Holstein told the Honolulu Star Advertiser. “Her assistant was really watching her. He was taking care of her.” The pilot, Clyde Kawasaki, also said in a press conference he did not understand how she died. “I could not understand how that could have happened at the time, excuse me, that she could have passed. I didn’t understand how it could have happened,” he said.

In response to a public records request I made on September 26, 2014, MPD responded, “Mr. Keith Yamamoto was not interviewed by MPD, therefore the specified record is not in MPD custody.” (10/6/14)

The Maui Police Chief said that HRS 841-3 did not “statutorily apply”, so that’s why they did not conduct an investigation. But Janice Okubo, from the Hawaii Department of Health, said that the MPD had complied with the law by performing an autopsy. So which is it? Does it apply or not? When you read the law it clearly it applies to Fuddy’s death. And HRS 841-3 calls for much more than an autopsy. It calls for a full blown investigation. Hawaii Revised Statutes 841-6 – Subpoenas; penalty for failure to The coroner or any deputy coroner may issue subpoenas for the attendance of any witnesses that the coroner or any deputy coroner may deem necessary to interrogate in the death then under investigation, returnable forthwith or at such place and time as the coroner or any deputy coroner shall therein direct. Any person who fails to comply with the requirements of such a subpoena upon conviction before any district court having jurisdiction in the matter, shall be fined not more than $25.

Honolulu Star Advertiser, February 11, 2004, by Timothy Hurly. Maui County's medical examiner said yesterday that a coroner's inquest will not be convened to further examine the mysterious death of Lauren Crossan, the 18-year-old New Jersey cheerleader who fell nine stories from a Ka'anapali hotel room. Lauren Crossan died on Jan. 12 after falling nine stories from a hotel room. Dr. Anthony Manoukian said the idea was shelved during a meeting yesterday with county attorneys, prosecutors and police detectives. Manou-kian had said he was hoping to subpoena witnesses and question them under oath about the Jan. 12 death, in an attempt to fill in the gaps about how Crossan came to tumble off a balcony at the Hyatt Regency Maui.

Hawaii Revised Statutes 841-5 – Form of oath. The coroner or deputy coroner may administer an oath to the witnesses as follows:“You solemnly swear that the evidence you shall give to this inquest concerning the death of the person (giving the name of the person dead if possible) which is now under investigation, shall be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth: SO HELP YOU GOD.”

HRS 841-13 The clothing and personal property found on any human body appearing to have come to death under any of the circumstances set forth in section 841-3 may be recovered and held as evidence by any police officer, pending the investigation of the facts and the final disposition of any trial which may arise out of the death.

“HRS 841-3 does not statutorily apply, and thus no sworn statements [ from witnesses Phillip Hollstein, Jacob and Rosa Key] were taken.” (Chief of Police Tivoli Faaumu, September 11, 2014)

Hawaii Department of Health administrator, Janice Okubo, “In accordance with Hawaii Revised Statutes 841-3, an autopsy was conducted and the report is available from the Maui County Police Department. The unattended death occurred on Molokai and the Maui Chief of Police is the Coroner for Maui County.” October 29, 2014



Hawaii Statutes - Section 841-7: Reports of investigation. The local agent of the department of health shall be notified in writing of the reason for the delay, if the cause of death cannot be determined within three days. Harle did not have to make a decision on the preliminary cause that day.

“Clyde Kawasaki, also said in a press conference he did not understand how she died. “I could not understand how that could have happened at the time, excuse me, that she could have passed. I didn’t understand how it could have happened,” he said.”

“For all intensive purposes, the date that I signed out the death certificate is the date that I issued the cause of death.” (Lindsey Harle, January 3, 2015)

“All witness statements taken, and recorded under MPD Report no. 13-055314 were included in the 47 page report released to you on April 4, 2014.” (9/11/2014 reply from MPD Police Chief Tivoli Faaumu)


Surely the MPD and FAA did not violate the Freedom of Information Act by withholding public records?


I am unable to confirm what was “evidenced” in the autopsy report because, in spite of it being a public record, it was almost completely blacked out.

Harle objects to the notion that she changed the cause of death. And to be fair, here is her explanation, “The preliminary cause of death that I verbally report to interested parties on the day of an autopsy is unofficial, and understood by all to be a "work in progress". As such, it is not an official or binding statement. The cause of death reported on the death certificate [January 11, 2014]and in the final autopsy report [January 24, 2014] are the only cause of death statements that I release with any legal or scientific "official" bearing. As such, the cause of death was never "changed" in any true sense.”

And, no, the Coroner’s Inquest form was not simply misdated on the signature line. Three dates are typed. December 13, 2013, is typed, twice and in two different places and two different ways. Once to indicate the day the autopsy took place, “On the 13 day of December in the year 2013”. And once to indicate the day the inquest results were witnessed by Detective Winfrey’s hand, “On this 13 day of December 2013”. December 11, 2013 is typed once to indicate the day Fuddy died, “That the deceased was named Loretta Fuddy and a Native of Hawaii, was aged about (blacked out), that he/she came to his/her death on the 11 day of December, 2013, from Acute Cardiac Arrhythmia due to Hyperventilation.” Winfrey refers to this document in her March 6, 2014 report and attaches it to said report.


I have yet to review The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) report because it has not been released. But that investigation is looking at the cause of the crash, not the cause of death for Loretta Fuddy.
