    This is really sad. I feel like it was some sort of accident. But why wouldn't they just come forward and say that People should just not play with guns. They are not toys.

    If somebody shot him unintentionally, it wouldn't be classified as an accident. It would be some sort of negligent homicide. Punishable with prison time and a felony record.
    Which is presumably why somebody might not want to come forward and say it.
    Just my opinion

    Drunken round of Russian Roulette, initiated by the "I did it" person?

    I don't think the guy shot himself at all. It wasn't his gun. The gun was found inside the home, the body was outside. The gun obviously didn't fly by itself inside the house after shooting the victim. So it would appear to me somebody else did it.
    Just my opinion

    I think it's suspicious as well, but wonder if the "I did it" comment could be in reference to the owner of the gun maybe letting Timothy handle the gun and it went off? Because the female caller also says, "No, you didn't. Relax. You didn't kill him." If I handed someone a gun and it went off, I might feel like "I did it" by giving them the gun.

    How did the gun get into the house? The body was outside.
    I don't think the guy shot himself at all. The gun was not his. It wasn't found near the body.

    someone feeling guilty (because they perhaps handed a gun to the deceased, going with that theory) could have picked up the gun after the incident and brought it inside?

    This video has parts of 911 call.
    I don't think the person on the background is saying "I did it."
    I hear something else. To me it sure sounds like a confession. Listen for yourself.

    That does not sound like a suicide to me.

    I don't believe it was suicide at all. And I can hear what the guy says on the background of 911 call. And it doesn't sound like "I did it" but it's not "inaudible."
    I can hear what he says.

    They certainly could enhance that tape, because what the guy said sounds pretty damning to me. Does anybody else hear the same thing?

    I hear the background person saying "I didn't kill em"... kinda defensively. What do YOU hear?

    That said, who'd commit suicide with others right there? I wonder how common that is...

    I hear the opposite. I don't hear "didn't" there at all. I hear "just" instead of "didn't."
    How would "I didn't kill em" make sense considering female responds "No, you didn't. Relax. You didn't kill him."
    By the way female caller claimed that they believed the gun wasn't loaded (suggesting an accident) and that the victim was stressed(suggesting suicide). Which one is it?
    If we are believe the female witness (as reported), the future meteorologist came over, stressed and making suicidal statements, and they gave him a gun to play with?

    Oh, I don't believe it was suicide for one second - just wanted to say what I thought I heard. I don't hear past tense on the word "kill". And the female could reassuring him that no, he didn't kill him. Makes no sense, just playing devil' advocate. This will be ugly no matter how it plays out. Sorry for you kiddo...

    ETA: listening again several times, with your suggestion of what you hear and honestly, I don't hear what you heard, even with the suggestion. I am NOT defending anyone here, I want justice for this guy too and don't think he killed himself.

    I don't hear past tense of the word "kill" either. But I hear "just" and not "didn't." To me it sounds very clear. Even if the sentence isn't exactly grammatically correct.
    Then the female caller's response makes sense.
    Here is another video that has parts of 911 call.
