“I saw that his tongue was choked out.

 

I noticed that the right eye was lying on midway – his cheek.

 

I noticed that his nose had been broken like somebody took a meat chopper and chopped his nose in several places.

 

As I kept looking I saw a hole which I presumed was a bullet hole.

 

And I could look through that hole and see daylight on the other side.”
