Sign of Bruising on a Cadaver

This is kind of a follow-up question to the one I posted here.

This may be a really stupid question and I honestly have no idea how to look it up...so I'd appreciate any help you can give me. Given that the mother bleeds out enough to go into shock and die (I believe that's about 1.5 L), would someone looking at her corpse be able to see bruising from the beating that she'd endured before death? From what I understand, bruising becomes very pronounced when the blood in the body settles but if she's lost 30% of her blood volume...would that affect the appearance of them at all? Thanks for your help :)
