Of a population numbering in the tens of thousands, not a living individual was found. The city showed evidence of extreme and all-encompassing violence. In some places the blood had formed pools several inches deep. (Pg. 24, sec 4)
Human corpses were found throughout the city. Forensic examination revealed a variety of self-inflicted lacerations, commonly including claw marks from fingernails up to 2 or 3 inches deep in the soft tissues of the body, including the abdomen and face. (Pg. 30, sec 2). Many bodies exhibited inexplicable lesions on the back of hands or in the center of the forehead. Cause of death varied. Extreme trauma was commonly found to have been inflicted on the bodies, some of it clearly self-inflicted. A number of the bodies showed signs of having been victims of or participated in cannibalism; a few showed signs of both. A majority of the bodies showed signs indicating extreme sexual assault- again, in some cases, clearly self-inflicted. The city had apparently erupted in a literal orgy of violence that none had escaped. (Pg. 50, sec 7).
