Trey Zwicker's autopsy shows brutality of murder

  • Louisville, KY, police have released the autopsy report for Trey Zwicker
  • The autopsy says Zwicker sustained both blunt and sharp force injures
  • Former medical examiner investigator says it suggests two weapons were used

The autopsy detailing the death of Trey Zwicker states the murdered teen died from "multiple injuries sustained in an assault," with "findings consistent with chop injuries to the back of [the] head."

Medical Examiner Amy Burrows-Beckham found that Zwicker had both blunt force and sharp force wounds. That leads Joseph Scott Morgan, a former medical examiner investigator, to believe that two different weapons were used to kill Zwicker.

Convicted murdered Josh Gouker said he alone beat Zwicker to death with a pipe. But prosecutors are trying Gouker's son Josh Young -- Zwicker's stepbrother -- on charges of complicity to murder and complicity to tampering with evidence.

Morgan uses diagrams from the autopsy report to show us why he thinks there was more than one weapon.
