The killing of a woman who was featured on a reality TV show is being called a murder-suicide that was apparently sparked by jealousy.
In an incident that took place Monday afternoon, People magazine reports: “Valerie Dowden Wells, 47, was shot multiple times by Robert Gaddy, 46, as she sat in her car near a McDonald’s parking lot in Shreveport, Louisiana, police Sgt. Rod Johnson tells People.”
The report adds: “Gaddy then turned the gun on himself, Johnson says. Gaddy and Wells were both taken to a local hospital, where Wells was pronounced dead immediately and Gaddy later died, Johnson says.”
Wells starred along with members of her family on the CMT reality show “Bayou Billionaires.”
“Gaddy knew Wells from middle school, and the pair had recently started dating, according to Wells’ 15-year-old daughter, Nikki,” People reports. “Gaddy was jealous that Wells continued to communicate with Nikki’s father, the teen confirms.”
