Dudley was wearing a hospital gown lying on the hardwood floor, his head in the southwest corner and his feet facing northeast. He was lying with his mouth open and his eyes closed. Fresh blood was visible due to the lacerations on his right hand and a deep apparent knife wound to his upper left thigh. His hand wound possibly resulted in self-defense.

The south and east walls were completely covered in hard protective glass. The opening of the door was measured to be 5 feet. Raul Jimenez and Jessica Munoz measured and gathered information on the two 4 feet Phillip’s fluorescent light bulbs that were positioned further down from his feet lying diagonally. Light bulb B was 12 feet 7 inches south from the wall, 12 feet 3 inches east, facing northeast. Light bulb C was 3 feet 5 inches north from the wall, 13 feet 7 inches west.
