The autopsy of the trans-identifying Nashville school shooter who killed three children and three adults in March has been released.

The conservative website Townhall obtained the shooter’s 11-page autopsy report from the Davidson County Medical Examiner’s office, the outlet reported Monday.

On March 27, the shooter entered The Covenant School, a private Christian school in Nashville, with two rifles and a pistol and fatally shot three nine-year-old students and three school staff members. The shooter identified as male and went by “Aiden,” and she had previously attended The Covenant School.

The autopsy report details the results of substance tests as well as the mass shooter’s injuries before she was fatally shot by responding police officers. Blood, urine, and vitreous-humor tests performed on the shooter did not detect substance or alcohol abuse, the autopsy shows.

The case summary called the shooter “a transgender person” who was “assigned female at birth.”

A sketch of a woman’s body documents in detail the gunshot wounds the shooter received from police when she was shot dead by two Nashville police officers. The shooter received an “entrance-type” gunshot wound to her torso and left arm. She also received a gunshot to the head, one to her right thigh, and graze wounds on her right shoulder as well as blunt-force trauma to her body.

The autopsy also describes the clothing the shooter was wearing when she died, which included a black tactical-style vest, a white T-shirt with words, drawings, and numbers handwritten on it, a pink-tan bra which also had a drawing and handwritten words on it, a black t-shirt with “a firing range logo” on the front of the left side, a utility belt with holsters, orange earplugs, a red baseball cap that she wore backwards, black and blue partial gloves, and camouflage pants.


The shooter also carried a pocket knife with “Aiden,” the male name she went by, monogrammed on it.

She carried multiple ammunition magazines as well, some of which had stickers and drawings on them.

“The body is that of a well-developed, well-nourished 5 foot 2 inch, 119-1/2 pound phenotypic female,” the radiography report reads.

“The nipples and breasts are symmetrical […] The external genitalia consists of an adult, atraumatic, vulva,” the report adds.

She had no scars on her wrists, the report noted. Wrist scars could have potentially indicated Hale engaged in self-harm. Hale did have a curved scar on the right side of her forehead.

The report also describes Hale’s female anatomy, including her vagina, uterus, and ovaries, all of which seemed to be normal. Hale was not pregnant at the time, the report found.

While the shooter’s autopsy is now public information, her manifesto has still not been released by police months after the shooting.

Members of the public have pressured police to release her writings, which were found in her car and in her bedroom, in hopes they will reveal Hale’s motive for shooting up her former school.

Nashville officials have said Hale’s manifesto will be released after the FBI finishes analyzing it.

This is a developing story and will be updated once more information becomes available.
