Brain haemorrhage, post-mortem. This view is looking down on the brain from above, with the front of the brain at bottom. The internal haemorrhage (bleeding) caused a large accumulation of blood (a haemotoma, dark area of clotted blood, lower centre). This bleeding may have been due to trauma or a burst blood vessel leading to a stroke. The bleeding would have led to reduced blood supply to the brain tissue (causing brain damage), pressure on the brain, and ultimately death.
