The person best able to speak about Renisha McBride’s state of mind before she was is Theodore Wafer, the man who fatally shot her.
That’s according to Dr. Werner Spitz, a forensic pathologist and former chief Wayne County medical examiner, who was called by the defense to testify in Wafer’s trial.
“He’s the one that saw her at the end,” Spitz said. “There were no other witnesses.”
It was the second day he testified in the high-profile trial in Wayne County Circuit Court.
Wafer, 55, shot McBride on the porch of his Dearborn Heights’ home around 4:40 a.m. Nov. 2. The defense, which claims Wafer shot in self-defense, has said McBride banged on Wafer’s front and side doors repeatedly, scaring him.
McBride had been drinking vodka and smoking marijuana before showing up at Wafer’s house, her friend previously testified.
