Police: Ala. woman thought accidentally killed had bullet in brain

HILLSBORO, Ala. (AP) - Investigators in Lawrence County say a bullet wound was found in the head of a 51-year-old woman who officials initially thought had received her injuries from a fall on concrete.

Lawrence County Sheriff Gene Mitchell says the death of Brenda Marie Terry is now being investigated as a possible murder. She was transported from her Hillsboro home with extensive head injuries Monday night.

Mitchell says Terry was taken to Huntsville Hospital, where X-rays revealed a bullet in her head. She died late Monday night.

Mitchell says Terry was at home with her family earlier that night and that nothing unusual was going on.

Investigators are waiting for the results of an autopsy by the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences.
