The photographs of Dayana Guillen’s brain were among the last of the PowerPoint’s 16 autopsy slides.
Images of external bruises and cuts on the dead little girl’s head were, on six monitors in the jury box and on a larger screen on the courtroom wall, presented first.
Next were fractures in the newborn’s skull. The bone breaks indicated blunt force trauma to the head caused her death, Dr. Tasha Zemrus, the chief deputy medical examiner in Tarrant County, told the jury.
Finally, a photo of the organ beneath was on display.
With the split skull, the brain’s torn tissue revealed what happened to Dayana, who lived from 6:20 p.m. on Sept. 9, 2021, to 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 10, 2021.
