STAMFORD, Conn. -- The autopsy on the Stamford woman killed last fall in a Capitol Hill chase in Washington, D.C., found that she had been shot by police five times, including once in the head, according to the National Journal.
According to an autopsy obtained by the attorney for Miriam Carey's family, the Stamford woman had three shots enter through her back, one in her left arm and one in the head. The report didn't state how many shots were fired while Carey's 14-month-old daughter was still in the vehicle with her, the National Journal reported.
The autopsy report also stated that Carey had no drugs or alcohol in her system at the time of the bizarre police chase, the National Journal said.
Eric Sanders, an attorney for the Carey family, has filed preliminary paperwork for a wrongful death claim against the federal government, the Secret Service, and the U.S. Capitol Police, according to the National Journal.
