Orange County Superior Court Judge Allen Baddour will consider the motion at a hearing May 21. He has temporarily sealed the autopsy report, pending his review to determine whether releasing it would compromise the ongoing investigation.
Judges have sealed almost every public record related to the case. Last week, Baddour upheld the sealing of search warrants and another unknown document after The Herald-Sun of Durham requested their release.
The 22-year-old Athens, Ga. native was fatally shot March 5. The autopsy report could likely show how many times Carson was shot and identify the weapon used. Two men have been charged in her death.
