The autopsy of Rafael Huezo Castillo, the father of North Carolina shooter Alvaro Castillo, has been released…
CHAPEL HILL — Rafael Huezo Castillo, who was allegedly shot by his son, Alvaro Castillo, died of multiple gunshot wounds to his head and neck, according to an autopsy report.
The autopsy report, released Wednesday by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, also states that multiple notes were left in the house in which Alvaro Castillo took credit for the shootings.
The autopsy report reveals that Rafael Castillo was sitting on the couch in a pair of boxer shorts and a white T-shirt between 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., when his son allegedly began firing at him with a 9 mm rifle. An investigator at the sheriff’s office said it appeared the elder Castillo was reading a newspaper at the time of the shooting.
One shot hit Rafael Castillo on top of his left shoulder, and five shots hit him in the left side of his face. One shot struck him in his left ear and then entered his skull. The tracks of the wounds were from left to right and slightly back to front in a downward direction, the report said. No powder residue was present on the skin around any of the wounds.
The bullets caused multiple skull fractures, massive disruption to the brain and destroyed the brainstem, the report said.
So Alvaro Castillo fired at his father from a distance and Rafael Castillo never even saw it coming. Alvaro Castillo is just another coward in a long line of cowardly killers.
Some details of Duane Morrison’s autopsy were also released. Morrison was the gunman at Platte Canyon High school in Bailey, Colorado who took six girls hostage, sexually assaulted some, and shot and killed Emily Keyes before shooting himself.
Morrison had no drugs in his system, prescription or otherwise, nor any alcohol.
Four bullets were found in him. Three from SWAT and one from himself. It’s unknown at this time which one killed him.
The complete autopsies of Morrison and his victim Emily Keyes are not being released to the public.
