Well, I'm not an expert so I've really no idea what effects cca would have on a body. I would expect some green to be perceptible though, where the copper has oxidised if exposed to air.
If I'm right about the brown discolouration on the bodies (it's a long time since I read about the Kingsbury Run murders) then the obvious wood preservative is some sort of creosote. In fact, a quick google shows that the very name comes from the Greek for "meat preserver"...
