Air France AF447 Brazilian medical examiners have told the French Bureau d’Enquetes et d’Analyses, the French accident investigation board, that the bodies of Air France AF447 passengers were found naked and mutated.

Paul-Louis Arslanian, director of the bureau, confirmed reports published in a major Brazilian newspaper earlier this week that 95 percent of the bodies so far had shown fractures in the legs, arms and hips similar to injuries found in people who fall from great heights.

O Estado de Sao Paulo said the low incidence of cranial trauma indicated the aircraft had not nose-dived into the ocean, otherwise the victims would have more head injuries.

The newspaper also said, ‘A large number of bodies also had red lesions in their mucous membranes, which is usually associated with asphyxia, or lack of oxygen.

Another major Brazilian newspaper, the Jornal do Brasil, cited information from an unnamed person from the Brazilian military with close access to the teams working in the recovery of the plane that the bodies were found “mutilated” with no clothing

Aviation experts have said, it all points to a rapid catastrophic rupture of the aircraft at about 35,000 feet.

Arslanian pleaded for the media and the public to stop speculating about the cause of the Air France crash.

A sea and air search is continuing for survivors, wreckage and the vital flight data and cockpit voice recorders which might shed more light on why the near new A300-200 series aircraft plunged out of the sky four hours into an 11 hour flight from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to Paris, France on June 1.
