I think he shot her because she was using him a spring board to fast-track her own modelling career.
The foolish guy must have thought the beauty was a real freak lover.......and shocked when she called "TIME" on him.

Yeah right and I've heard that at last she revealed her long held secret and that was that she really wanted to go out on Saturday nights and DANCE to Chubby Checkers old song 'The Twist'
Remember?....'C'mawn Bay-Bee let's DO the TWIST - la de da de da'.
A great old song and a good dance too - IF you can do it!

In the end she finally realised that she had no long term future with a CRIPPLE.
She told him so.
In blind fury he shot her - FOUR times.

Capish?
Iam smarter than him
