BASTROP COUNTY, Texas -- Twenty-three days after a Bastrop woman died from a duputy's gun, a forensic pathologist released her autopsy report on Tuesday.
Yvette Smith, 47, died Feb. 17 after Bastrop County Deputy Daniel Willis shot her while responding to a home.
According to the autopsy report, the deputy shot Smith two times, once in the lower abdomen and a second time in the back of her left hip. The report also shows Smith had a blood alcohol content of .104.
The shooting happened near the front door of a home she was visiting. Initially, investigators said Smith had a gun and didn't follow Willis’ commands. Hours later, the department corrected itself to say it didn’t know if she had a gun.
Last week, Bastrop County Sheriff Terry Pickering disciplined several of his deputies for altering Willis’ training records. Since her death, the FBI and the Texas Rangers have opened investigations into the shooting.
