Escaped Inmate Richard Matt Died From Three Shots to Head: Autopsy - NBC News
Escaped inmate Richard Matt was shot three times in the head and died from severe skull fractures and brain injuries, according to autopsy results released Sunday.
Matt, a convicted murderer, was shot and killed Friday by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer after nearly three weeks on the run while hundreds of authorities searched for Matt and David Sweat, who broke free from Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York on June 6.
The autopsy, performed at Albany Medical Center by Dr. Michael Sikirica, showed that Matt also had bug bites, blisters and minor abrasions "consistent with living in the woods for three weeks," according to a statement from New York State Police.
