The victim's boyfriend returned to the couple's
apartment about 1:35 a.m. and found the victim armed with his
pistol. After confronting the victim about having his gun, she
returned it to its original place. The victim then entered the
bedroom and shot herself in the head. Investigators found a micro-cassette
recorder in the apartment which contained the victim giving details
on how she planned to kill herself. Evidence on the tape reflected
the statement given by the victim's boyfriend.
