The Arkansas Democrat Gazette is reporting that the autopsy report on Mr. Chavis Carter, the 21 year found dead in the custody of the Jonesboro, Arkansas police department, was a suicide. The report indicates that the muzzle of the gun was pressed against the right temple at the time of the shooting. Family members have questioned the shooting death of Carter. Internet chatter indicates that Carter may have been left-handed which further complicates the story of a handcuffed inmate who had been searched twice by the police somehow killed himself.
