Alberta Thomas is killed by her romantic interest after she became jealous of another woman
Thomas confronted her boyfriend for his interest in another woman, and in response he shot at her 4 times, striking her twice (once in the breast and once in the neck). He then threw the murder weapon under the bed, fled the apartment wearing only his underwear, and jumped through a second story window, breaking his ankle in the process.
