A 44-year-old woman suffered three gunshot wounds during a fatal confrontation with a Baytown police officer last week, according to a private autopsy commissioned by the woman’s family.

One of those gunshots hit Pamela Turner, who had paranoid schizophrenia, in the face and shattered several bones, attorney Ben Crump said. The second gunshot hit the slain woman in the left chest, and the third struck her in the right abdomen, according to the autopsy report.

None of the shots were fired from close range, and all of them remained lodged in her body, Crump said.

“It is no question when you look at that video and you look at the physical facts from the autopsy that it adds up to the elements of murder,” Crump said.
