Nevada high court ends media ban on Vegas shooting autopsies


Intellihub editor’s note: Release away people. However, there is not to much to be learned from notarized autopsies. More from Intellihub soon.

News organizations are free to report about the “anonymized, redacted” autopsy findings of the 58 people killed in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the Nevada Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.

The panel of three justices overruled a state court judge in Las Vegas who had ordered The Associated Press and Las Vegas Review-Journal not to report coroner findings about one victim — an off-duty police officer.





The autopsies were released Jan. 30 after a ruling by a separate judge in response to a public records lawsuit. The news organizations reported on the findings before Clark County District Judge Richard Scotti issued an order preventing further publication.
