Police in Tarentum, Pa., found Dennis dead with a bullet in his head and a gun in his hand. Teresa initially claimed that the couple had fought about her drinking the last beer. She said that Drum then shot himself after she reached for the gun. She then curiously took a shower, put her bloody clothes in the hamper, took pictures of her dead husband and sent them to a friend. She said that she was not sure what to do but few people would likely take those particular steps.
Police allege that the couple actually fought over a casserole and she admitted to drinking seven beers. She said that he cursed her cooking and that they ended up in the bedroom. She said that she struggled with him over the gun and he shot himself in the forehead.
The couple’s two children were in the house at the time.
