Evidence: Summary Ballistics Report on Relevant Registered Handguns Matching the Description of the Murder Weapon
 

YOKNAPATAWPHA COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT

    Investigating Officer(s): Det. S. Murphy. Det. T. Armstrong
    Incident No.: 003933-15J-2000
    Case Description: Zoe Chase Homicide

The .25 caliber semi-automatic handguns listed below match the description of the weapon used in the Zoe Chase homicide and were previously determined to be registered to someone connected with Zoe Chase or with the investigation into her murder. Each of these handgun owners voluntarily surrendered surrendered his weapon to the Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department for ballistics testing.

Each of these handguns was test-fired using Winchester .25 Automatic Full Metal Jacket rounds, the same type as the casings found at the crime scene (Evidence #s 003933-31 through 003933-32) and as the bullet recovered from the deceased's body during autopsy (Evidence # 54J-2000-JJ1). The resulting test-fired rounds were then compared with the bullet recovered during autopsy. The results are listed below.
