    Wow.
    According to this guy, TV station TXCN claims they were a double homicide. This is not supported by the link he provides:

    He had only named one NFL player, but had agreed to reveal several others. I wonder how many were Cowboys, since he was working out of Dallas?

    Wait a second. Who shoots themself in the stomach before shooting themself in the head? That just doesn't add up.

    My question is how they could reach a conclusion so quickly? This is not NCIS or Bones it takes more than a day or so to do a proper autopsy(sp).

    This seems like a rush to get the case closed to me.

    What's the autopsy going to reveal that wasn't at the crime scene? The CSI guys with the evidence there, could've made the determination in a matter of a couple of hours...

    -OR-

    They expect foul play, but don't want to tip their hand just yet.

    If he has gunshot residue on his hand and his prints are on the gun they could make that determination. My guess is that he was losing his girl for the 3rd time and roided a little. Not too hard to determine where the shots came from and who had what with splatter on them.

    After that I have two theories. a) he shot her and his first thought was "oh sh@t" I better make this look like someone came after us and shooting myself in the stomach will make it look like it and keep me alive(dumb move) ...eventually shooting himself in the head.....or b) he wanted her to feel sorry for him so he shot himself in the gut first to get her attention and when it didn't work he shot her and then himself in the head.

    This adds to the theory

    That is why you do a blood analisys because there are things you can't see. Hence the autopsy. If they let cases just go from what they can see with the nakkid eye then a lot of cases would not be solved. Was he given a small amount of a drug to where you can stage suicide? There is no way the blood test are back yet.
