It is unknown whether [Wood] and [Marie Hansen]'s conduct simply was inept or disturbingly conspiratorial in the zeal to hold someone accountable for the death of a child. Their sloppy records in the Long case include listing the wrong gender for the baby and contradictory accounts of the existence of subarachnoid hemorrhage - bleeding in the brain. Inexplicably, the autopsy report contains no documentation of the baby's pneumonia-filled lungs. Wood, who approved Hansen's autopsy of Long, has little credibility left. Her ...
