A Tragic Death Still Unresolved

SAN FRANCISCO - Army medical examiners were suspicious about the close proximity of the three bullet holes in Pat Tillman's forehead and tried without success to get authorities to investigate whether the former NFL player's death amounted to a crime, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.
Shot from 10 yards away

The doctors — whose names were blacked out — said that the bullet holes were so close together that it appeared the Army Ranger was cut down by an M-16 fired from a mere 10 yards or so away.


In his last words moments before he was killed, Tillman snapped at a panicky comrade under fire to shut up and stop "sniveling."

If it was fratricide, the family has a right to know.
Update: (sigh) The Kos kids believe Tillman was murdered because he planned to meet with Noam Chomsky.
