A photo in the medical examiner's report, showing Robert Long's bullet wounds in a circular pattern on his chest and one shot to the head.

Governor Perry calls Jamie into her office to show him the report from the medical examiner. The report shows that Lee was shot in the spine, which would have resulted in his paralysis making it impossible for him to fire a gun. The gun shots killing Robert included five shots clustered in a circle on his chest and one to his head. Later, when Chief Rainwater receives a copy of the report, he comments that it was a "very good shot," implicating Kayce's military background.
