The murder of this victim has left behind a teenage Daughter to grow up without her Mother in her life

A Female Victim was fatally shot by her 42-year-old boyfriend in their home who then committed suicide.

At the time of the shooting, which occurred upstairs, the victim's teenage daughter and two friends were relaxing downstairs.

Emergency dispatchers received a call from the home but the caller hung up.  They called back and the victim said everything was okay.  Several minutes later, they received a call from the victim's daughter saying she found the bodies of her mother and the perpetrator lying in a pool of blood.
