The photo of the scalped skull as well raises many questions.
The scalped corpse turned out to be the handiwork of the Azerbaijanis themselves. Otherwise it is impossible to explain how the same corpse appears in two roles in Azerbaijani chronicle.
There is no doubt that this is the same person. One only needs to compare the photos.
- Lilac shirt (in both photos)
- “Scalped” skull in one photo and head covered with thick hair in the other
- Mustache (in both photos)
- Open eyes (in both photos)
- Band (Scarf around his neck) (in both photos)
It is noteworthy that the process of scalping took place after his death and after considerable time period since the death. The presence of anemic color and weathered wounds indicate that the corpse was scalped much later than during 6 days since his death and 4 days after the first photo had been taken. (First photo shooting took place on February 28, second on March 2).
