Maine woman who died in NH standoff identified as on-again, off-again girlfriend of gunman
GREENLAND, N.H. (AP) ' The woman who died during a standoff in New Hampshire that also killed a police chief has been identified as a 26-year-old cosmetologist who had dated the gunman.
Donna Tibbetts of Berwick, Maine, confirmed Saturday that her daughter Brittany Tibbetts was shot to death Thursday. Authorities have not given her name but say a woman was in the Greenland home where police tried to serve a search warrant when a man inside opened fire, killing the chief and wounding four officers. The gunman, Cullen Mutrie, was later found dead in the home with Tibbetts.
Donna Tibbetts says her daughter and Mutrie had dated off and on. She says they were broken up in the days before they died, but Mutrie was upset about something so her daughter was trying to help.
