I tried to search for both Upshaw and Rotenberry's names on google and found a lot of missing listings. Suspect the MS Bureau of Investigation has had them removed pending the investigation. No mention of contacting Rotenberry.

I’m no expert, but I believe it is rare for women to commit suicide by shooting themselves in the head.

Hopefully she wasn’t a victim of the DemocRATs’ “national conversation” about “gun control”.

It does happen - I personally knew a gal who did so about 20-odd years ago, but like you said, it’s rare.

Used a 12 gauge. Messy.

Same thing, a friend of mine killed herself with a shotgun about 15 years ago.

Rare, but not unheard of.

would not be the first time the radical left has got a gun and shot someone.

Look at the last shooter in DC who was egged on by the bigoted hateful SPLC and who went itbo the family research place to kill.

Is the SPLC being sued over that ?

You can guarantee that if tables were turned the SPLC woudl have gone full throttle to sue and take all that money for their own agenda

If we had an assault weapons ban, hi-cap mag ban and universal firearm registration, this poor woman probably would still be alive.

The big question is what was she doing at his house. She was 53 and single. He is 60.

Had she killed herself at her house, my first thought would be an inoperable cancer diagnosis.

There was no mention of contact with Rotenberry. We shall see.

She was single and her body was found in his home. You tell me.

Maybe Freedom From Religion sent someone in to make a bloody protest against prayer in school.

So....

False flag?

Gun-banning douchenozzles REALLY need another pool of blood to dance in, and if they got a krazy to pop a Republican woman, well, that's double points on the ol' "bipartisan" scale.

Sorry if that sounds paranoid, but I just don't put anything past them anymore.
