Bruising and coagulation go into it as well. When you live your skin reacts, even if you're only alive a short time after the initial assault.

I was a funeral director for a few years.

They found the wife's body in the lake today. No more details. Will update as they come in.

Ok I have learned a little more but not much. A fisherman found the body floating in the lake near the dam which is about 5 miles from her home where the husband was found. They don't know if she was taken there by boat or if she was carried there by the currents. I'll explain how that could happen in a lake. Lake Oconee is what's called a "Pump Storage" lake. In the 1920's Georgia Power Company (the company I worked for some 39 years) built Sinclair dam as a hydro-electric dam and backed up Lake Sinclair. In the 1970's they built Wallace dam at the upper end of Lake Sinclair as a pump storage dam and backed up Lake Oconee. During the day when electric demand is high they let water through Wallace dam and use it to generate power. At night when demand is low they reverse the generators making motors out of them and pump water out of Lake Sinclair back into Lake Oconee getting ready for the next days generation. When they are generation there is a strong pull toward Wallace dam but when they are pumping back the push isn't as strong so things keep getting pulled toward the dam. That may be more info than anyone wanted about the lakes. Anyway the Sheriff said she was murdered but that "there was no glaring signs of trauma. I'm not sure what that means unless she was tied up or something. I'll update when and if I find out more. One of their sons was shot and killed in Atlanta about 10/12 years ago trying to buy crack cocaine but the guy that shot him is still in prison.
