From what I can gather, the very bloody head wound. But a very large pool of blood... meaning survival probability is probably low. It's not that we like speculating... it's just that it's been hushed to the point now all anyone can get is rumors about rumors... so it's hard to say either way. the last solid eye witness saw her still barely alive in a large pool of blood.
I don't mean to doubt the eye-witness reports, but I've seen a few head wounds before, and they can be very very bloody, and still not be fatal, or even life threatening. Then again, if they saw a cracked skull or brains spilling out, that's something else. Murders usually make the papers even when the murderer might be connected. They just leave out that last part.

Well as it was described (seen a few head wounds myself, and i agree with your assessment of them) the pool was VERY large... like around the whole body large. Seems like a lot of blood for a little lady... especially if everyone was just standing around doing nothing as she bled out, which is sort of the MO here. And if she dies in the hospital things tend to get quieted down from that side as well.
I wonder, and you may know, if you try to help someone in that condition and they die anyway, are you at risk of being held liable? In the US we have good samaritan laws to protect people... what's the situation here? I know I stopped to help a moto who was hit by a car once, and after I'd braced hit break and given him some pain meds and checked him out for no other serious injuries the Khmers there shooed me off "before the police come and blame you".
We will get no more then what has been speculated on now. Simple as that. The real circumstances are known to to those that know and no one else will know. Cryptic? Yes. This thread should be stopped now, because believe me, it is going no further.
