#1 now LTTE website is stating that mario is not dead. I know propaganda and all , but this website didn't work for me but seen another pic on another website and it sure did look like him but not burned at all.

#5 Velupillai Prabhakaran, one of the world's dreaded guerrilla leaders is indeed dead, but questions abound on how exactly he died.

I'm not a doctor, but it looks like lead poisoning to me.

#9 What's the Rule of Thumb? Little hole going in, big hole coming out?
I gotta feeling what's under that towel would put our old buddy Yassin to shame...

#15 As Coroner, I thoroughly examined him
And he's not only merely dead,
He's really most sincerely dead.

#16 I'm very disappointed in all of you. Here it is 6:43 eastern daylight time, and I'm the first to say; "He's dead, Jim".

#17 "Is it OK to post gore pictures in threads?"

There's no gore in tu's picture, grom.

Looks like they cleaned the blood off before taking the picture, darn it.

Big headache, Prab-baby?

#18 looks more like his head got whacked with a blunt object, not shot - don't see any powder burns or residue?

Lastly, many in leadership exercise the use of body doubles to prtect themselves e.g. Saddam Hussein, whom had several.
