Lake County public defender James Mathews asked Armstrong several questions regarding Robertson’s blood — or the lack of blood — at the crime scene. While the blood trapped and pooled in Robertson’s body was gathered and measured during the autopsy, and some blood was found at the murder scene, a “significant amount of blood” is unaccounted for, Mathews said.
“I’m just saying that I sliced off the very tip of my finger and blood poured out,” he said. “It filled my whole hand. If there are 94 wounds, all bleeding, where did the blood go?”
Testimony for the state continues today in Judge Vincent Culotta’s courtroom.
