Jerry Garcia Autopsy

Within hours of Jerry's death on August 9, 1995, paramedics transported his body to the County Coroner's office at San Francisco Medical Center. After stripping and delousing the corpse, the Medical Examiner went on to use electric clippers to shear away Jerry's thick carpet of chest and stomach hair. Once shaved, Jerry was marked with incision lines for the traditional autopsy "Y Cut."
