According to the autopsy report, the bullet that killed Taylor “ripped first through his right leg and then the left, and possibly came from a 9mm handgun.”

Besides the bullet wounds and “a small abrasion on Taylor’s right biceps,” no other injuries were found on his body. Toxicology tests also revealed that there were no drugs in Taylor’s system.

Further details are found after the jump.

In more descriptive details from Taylor’s report, “a bullet perforated the soft tissues and muscles of the right groin and the right femoral artery, a crucial pathway for blood.

The bullet tore through muscles of Taylor’s upper right thigh….then exited the leg and entered the athlete’s left thigh.”

Police say that Taylor’s death was the result of a botched home robbery attempt. The four accused robbers remain in jail, awaiting trial on charges of first-degree murder & armed burglary.
