Woodward question

THE pathologist who carried out the post-mortem on Boston baby Matthew Eappen in the Louise Woodward trial is under investigation.

According to US newspaper reports, Dr Gerald Feigin is being investigated for failing to spot a serious heart defect in the body of a 34-year- old-man. He testified last year that Matthew had injuries consistent with being vigorously shaken. The doctor has since resigned from his post to take up another job.
