File photo

An autopsy report for escaped prison inmate Richard Matt was released Sunday afternoon.

Matt was shot and killed by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection Tactical Unit member on Friday. The autopsy says Matt died from severe skull fractions and brain injuries due to gunshot wounds to the head.

Matt had blisters, bug bites and other wounds that reflect that he was living in the woods for the last three weeks.

Fellow inmate Kevin Sweat was shot and captured Sunday afternoon south of the Canadian boarder in the Town of Constable.
