Murder probe for death 911 caller deemed suicide

BENSALEM(AP) – A suburban Philadelphia prosecutor says they’ve opened a murder investigation into a fatal New Year’s Day shooting that originally came in as a suicide.

Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler says police are questioning the boyfriend of the 23-year-old woman found dead Thursday at a Bensalem home.

Heckler tells the Bucks County Courier Times the man claimed he was downstairs, heard a shot upstairs and found the woman dead.

A call to 911 around 11 a.m. described it as a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
