Coroner: Bradley Stone Didn’t Die of Self-Inflicted Stab Wound
The coroner has ruled Bradley Stone did not die of self-inflicted wounds to the center of his body. After Stone was found dead Tuesday, Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said Stone appeared to have died of “self-inflicted cutting wounds to the center of his body.” Another news report suggested Stone committed seppuku.
The coroner, Dr. Walter Hoffman, did say Stone had a deep wound on his left leg, but it wasn’t a major blood vessel and it didn’t cause his death.
Stone was found surrounded by a double-bladed axe, a machete two prescription bottles and an energy drink can with white powder around the lip. Hoffman said any of these items “could have contributed” to Stone’s death.
