If police reports are correct, gun experts have provided insight into the weapon used by Dr. Hunter S. Thompson in his alleged suicide suggesting that law enforcement authorities have ignored strong evidence that Thompson was murdered.
Police reports say that the pistol Hunter Thompson used to allegedly kill himself was found with six rounds in the magazine but none in the firing chamber. Experts quizzed by this reporter have pointed out that the Smith & Wesson 645 semi-automatic pistol does not have a “manual cycle,” the feature in a gun which was cited by law enforcement in an article by Deborah Frazier and Jeff Kass, of the Rocky Mountain News on March 2, 2005, to explain how the Thompson pistol could have been found with six rounds in the clip (the magazine) but none in the chamber. The experts said that in every firing event, the S&W 645 will cycle a new round into the chamber as long as there are bullets in the clip.
Police performed no ballistic tests to confirm that the round which killed Thompson was fired from the weapon found at his feet.
A link to the owners manual for the Smith & Wesson 645 was furnished by the experts HERE.
Pitkin County Deputy Ron Ryan told Rocky Mountain News that the gun’s magazine had six bullets left in the clip, but no bullet was found in the gun’s firing chamber.
Police immediately found it odd that, given the manner in which the S&W 645 operates, there was no bullet in the chamber. Pitkin County Investigator Joseph DiSalvo told Rocky Mountain News that:
“I think a bullet from the magazine should have cycled into the chamber, but if there’s a malfunction, they may not,”
“DiSalvo said he hadn’t checked the gun, but the weapon could have been on a manual cycle that would have stopped the other bullets from going into the chamber.”
But the S&W 645 has no “manual cycle.” Barring a highly improbable malfunction, a new round would have inevitably been jacked into the firing chamber. The possibilities which remain are:
– That a highly improbable gun malfunction occurred,
– That someone had handled the gun after Thompson was dead, and manually ejected the round from the chamber. Thompson obviously could not have,
– That the weapon was not the murder weapon, and was laid at Thompson’s feet without being fired.
In the official police report by the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Ryan apparently referred to the existence of a manual cycle feature, when he wrote:
“I examined the handgun and observed that it was a Smith and Wesson model 645, bearing serial number TBM1244. The de-cocking lever was forward and the gun had an external hammer that was in the rear-most position. I removed the magazine and observed that there were apparently six rounds in the magazine. I did not remove the rounds to confirm the number present. I pulled the slide to the rear and observed there was not a round in the chamber, which is consistent when a semi-automatic handgun is restricted from its normal motion when fired.”
If the gun does not have a manual cycle feature, which would require the operator to perform an action to put a new round into the chamber after each shot, then there is no explanation of what could have “restricted” the handgun “from its normal motion when fired.”
