OTTAWA — Donna Jones and Karen Gorman were packing or unpacking boxes in their boss’s office. It was August 2007, about a month before Ms. Jones’ wedding.

It was on the left side of her spine, above the waist. It was fresh, Ms. Gorman believed, because it was purple and black.

“It was about five inches long,” she said. “And about two-three inches wide. I remember very, very clearly.”

The daughter of a map-maker, she even calculated the angle of the direction of the bruise.

“I took very careful note of it,” she said, “because I knew I would have to describe it to somebody one day.”
