Anthony Jones could face the death penalty for the alleged rape and murder of 13-year old Genelle Conway-Allen, whose nude body was discovered in Fairfield’s Allan Witt Park last February.

But during a hearing this week – defense attorneys asked all charges be dropped, all because a private email that FOX40 obtained Tuesday that puts Conway-Allen’s autopsy into question.

The email is from Dr. Hogan, solely intended for prosecutor, shortly after Hogan conducted that autopsy.

She says, “just between you and me […]” the strangling may have happened accidentally during consensual sex.

The Solano County Sheriff’s Department confirms a second autopsy was performed on Conway-Allen, but didn’t say why.

Adding to frustrations: Hogan’s refusal to testify in several high profile homicide cases.

An email sent last month from the doctor to the District Attorney’s office reads

“I gave Solano County my best – and I was treated badly for five years and then fired. I am 60 years old and I need to get on with my life […]

“[…] Your office insisted I be available to testify twice while my father was in hospice. Then again once, 36 hours after he died. I just can’t cope with this. I have to cut my ties with Solano County to survive.”
