The Durham Herald Sun reports the autopsy shows Smith was shot in the back of the head, and the shot was fired from a "distant range."
Police believe Smith was shot just after she left her Durham apartment the morning of Jan. 4. Her body was found two hours later.
Shannon Crawley, a former Guilford County 911 operator, has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with Smith’s death. Smith's fiancé, a Greensboro police officer, told investigators Crawley was stalking him.
