Law enforcement officials released a statement saying Crystal Trent passed away over the night.
Trent's death will now be investigated as a homicide. The prime suspect in her death at this time is Jerry Palmer, who was found dead in the front yard of a home on Gravel Hill Road.
Investigators believe at this time that Palmer shot Trent twice at close range and then turned the gun on himself. It is believed that the two were arguing over domestic issues.
