Autopsy confirms police officer’s close-range shooting of victim

According to a confidential autopsy report recently obtained by the Austin American-Statesman and KVUE-TV, Austin policeman Detective Charles Kleinert had his gun muzzle in direct contact with the back of victim Larry Eugene Jackson’s neck. An imprint of the gun remained on Jackon’s skin, providing solid proof of their close proximity.

Kleinert, now retired from the police force, faces manslaughter charges as a result of the altercation. The autopsy report showed gunpowder substance around the bullet entrance. Several injuries to Jackson’s body were also confirmed but have not been conclusively tied to the fatal interaction between Jackson and Kleinert.
