Maybe she got wind of all the recent bodies showing up in Asheville and decided to add to them.

A woman whose boyfriend was found shot to death in her Winston-Salem apartment on Sunday apparently committed suicide yesterday in Asheville, authorities said.

Jennifer Marie Tronson, 34, was found by Asheville police officers, Winston-Salem police said in a statement. Investigators there say that they believe that Tronson committed suicide and that an autopsy will be conducted.

Tronson had a relationship with Jonathan D. Benton, 30, of Boonville, who was found dead inside 321 Glendare Drive, Apt. N, by his mother, police said.

Winston-Salem police had said that Benton did not live in the apartment but had stayed there before, which was how his mother knew to look for him there. An autopsy showed that Benton died from a gunshot wound. Police ruled the death a homicide, one of 14 in Winston-Salem so far this year.

Investigators determined that Tronson was the lease holder of the apartment in the Glendare Apartments complex and had been trying to find her to question her about Benton's death.

Three neighbors, who asked not to be identified, said they sometimes saw Tronson and Benton together. The couple often would grill outdoors. One neighbor said that Tronson had a son and that she moved into the complex last May. Another neighbor noticed that she had a California license plate on her vehicle. Tronson and Benton recently had broken up, the neighbor said.

I am sorry for everyone concerned especially the ten year old son.
We live in a very beautiful country and to me nothing gets so tough that I will take my life.

Seems a long way to travel just to commit suicide, sounds like another story that has more to it,

I went to school with Jennifer from middle school to high school and she was far from the type of person to hurt anyone. I know in life things happen and situations change that will make someone lose it. I don't know what happened but I pray for both of thier souls and I pray for her son who is without his mother. Jennifer was a wonderful and funny person. We lost contact since school but I wish I could have been there for her to help her through this situation. I pray the Lord will comfort both families.

Jen and I were very close in Jacksonville, FL. I met her at a very low time in my life. She was a bright ray of sun. We spent a lot of time together. I hate that two people lost their life. I lost track of her and just found out. I really miss Jen. I pray for both families. She was definitely one of the most beautiful people I have ever met. Inside and out,

*Reeeaaallly* close, huh? That you don't know that your buddy has died until three years after the fact on a TOPIX forum?
You don't even have a weak connection with this person on Facebook?
Yeah, real close. I'm closer with the passed out homeless person on my sidewalk.
