An Alabama coroner says the body of a man who held a 5-year-old hostage for nearly a week before being killed in a shootout with the FBI received 'multiple gunshot wounds.'

Dale County Coroner Woodrow Hilboldt said he was allowed into the bunker where Jimmy Lee Dykes lay Wednesday evening and pronounced him dead at 8:58 p.m.

Hilboldt said Dykes' body had "multiple gunshot wounds," but he declined to give the exact number of wounds or where on his body he had been shot.

The coroner said Thursday that Dykes' body was taken to a state forensics laboratory in Montgomery for an autopsy.
