An autopsy of the Florida man shot and killed by law enforcement earlier this week turned up no surprises, Park County Attorney Brett Linneweber said Friday.
The autopsy of 81-year-old Thomas Kyros was conducted Thursday by Dr. Thomas Bennett in Bozeman, Linneweber said. While a written report of the autopsy was not available Friday evening, Linneweber said "the results were consistent with what was reported to them."
However, Linneweber could not provide details, including how many times Kyros was shot.
It's been reported that multiple shots were fired at Kyros after he pointed a gun at law enforcement officers responding to a shooting at 50 Outlaw Hill Road in the Wineglass area outside Livingston. It's believed that Kyros shot Georgia Smith multiple times. Smith is in stable condition following the shooting.
The state Department of Justice is conducting the investigation. Because Kyros was killed by law enforcement officers, an inquest will be held at a future date. Linneweber said he did not know when the inquest will happen.
"There have been some interesting twists to the case so it takes a little bit of time," he said.
Kyros had been living at the Days Inn in Bozeman since mid-November. Kyros had a long history with Smith and her daughter Promethea Pythaitha. Pythaitha, now 19, gained national publicity for graduating college when she was 14 years old. Kyros had attempted to help fund Pythaitha's education, but his help had been refused in recent years.
