Velupillai Prabhakaran’s Missing Middle Finger

Conspiracy theories are flying thick and fast regarding the photographs of Prabhakaran’s dead body released by the Sri Lankan army. Is it really Prabhakaran’s body or that of his double? Why does the body not have burn marks if Prabhakaran died after his armour plated ambulance was hit with a rocket propelled grenade? Why are Prabahkaran’s eyes open? Was Prabhakaran betrayed by an insider, captured alive and shot dead, execution style?

The Sri Lankan army’s website has these pictures of Prabhakaran’s body.

A commentator on one of the various websites I visit has pointed out these pictures have a basic problem. Apparently Prabhakaran does NOT have his middle finger in his left arm. He lost it long time ago. But in the pictures it is NOT missing.
