EULESS -- K’Lynn Low hinted on her Facebook page about a problem with her boyfriend.
On Dec. 30, Low, who identified herself as K’Lynn Tucker, wrote: “Y is it my bf can get mad at me and act like an a------ but I can’t.”
It turned tragic on Valentine’s Day.
The 31-year-old nurse and her boyfriend, Jeffrey Meekins, 34, were found dead in their Euless apartment in what police described as a murder-suicide.
Low was shot in the head, and her death was a homicide, the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office’s Web site reported Monday.
The office also ruled that Meekins died from a gunshot wound to the head. His death was ruled a suicide, according to medical examiner’s Web site on Tuesday.
A small handgun was found in the apartment in the 1000 block of East Ash Lane, but no note was found, Euless police Lt. John Williams said Monday.
Meekins’ and Low’s bodies were found on the living room floor, and the two were pronounced dead at 5:05 p.m. Sunday, according to the medical examiner’s Web site.
Officers had never been called to the apartment before, Williams said.
On her Facebook and MySpace pages, Low sounded happy in recent days.
On Wednesday, she wrote on her Facebook page: “All my friends have been so good 2 me.:). U Rock! All of U.”
The next day during the record snowfall, Low wrote: “Thank u Jesus for this beautiful snow. Pls help the Dallasians to drive in it.”
Meekins indicated that he liked her statement about the snow and Dallas drivers.
Euless police said people heard from the couple Saturday, and Low wrote on her MySpace page Sunday.
The bodies were found by a neighbor’s child who had come to the apartment to play with one of Low’s children, Williams said. Low had two children, but they were away for the weekend, police said.
Police canvassed the neighborhood, but they didn’t find anyone who had heard anythingTechnorati Tags: Texas,Girlfriend,Head,Medical,examiner,rules,telegram,news,DOMINGO,RAMIREZ,Lynn,Facebook,Tucker,Valentine,Jeffrey,Meekins,apartment,death,homicide,Tarrant,office,gunshot,handgun,East,Lane,John,Williams,room,MySpace,friends,Rock,snowfall,Thank,Jesus,Dallasians,statement,Dallas,neighbor,children,Police,deaths,Officers,suicide,boyfriend
