    Senseless and cold. This is early, but I don’t think this was a random incident. This looks like a planned execution. Here’s hoping security cameras will aid in the quick apprehension of the killer.

    Oh, I just looked at her FB, tomorrow would have been her 5th wedding anniversary.
    :(

    Execution style-

    She walked up and seems to have had the gun in her right hand visible to the victim. The victim jumps back when she sees it. The perp does something with her left hand that you can't quite see. She seems to be wearing a dress or a robe of some kind. She has long hair that you can see bounce as she runs away. The whole exchange is a few seconds, not enough to have said much but she definitely talked for a couple of seconds. She didn't just walk up and start shooting though it was clearly her intention to kill this woman. She wanted the victim to know something or say something.

    IMO: These two people know each other and there is a history. The perp lives nearby

    I agree. With the shooter arriving so quickly after the husband left, she either knows their schedules or lives close enough to see him drive by on his way to work

    I wonder if it could be a neighborhood issue, like a spat involving the HOA or something? Those can cause hard feelings fast.

    Or if it was racially motivated?

    I'm surprised there is not more information about the victim available online, nor more information about the investigation.

    just rewatched it - the killer definitely comes from the driver's side and crosses in front of the vehicle

    So the husband leaves the house and the Perp shows up *four* mins later. Obviously she knew his schedule. Oh yeah, very personal. The husband probably has insight in to who this person might be....just opinion and speculation, of course.

    FYI The husband installs flooring... so I’m not sure about the consistency of his work schedule. She took off work to have the garage sale.

    maybe someone saw him drive by on his way to work ...
    kinda strange that she booked off work to have a garage sale - defeats the purpose of making extra cash and if the only reason is to get rid of junk ... well you can do that on your day off or just donate it to charity

    That is horrific to watch. RIP Ms Elizabeth. In my opinion, personal execution. Appears to a female with a mission with the way she walks. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    And she appears even to jog up to EB while her back is turned, to get right on her before she has a chance to see who it is and run away. EB seems to react when she sees the gun.

    I would have thought by now, there would be an arrest, as seems so personal.
    There is the video of the suspect, the car and possibly further Police enquiries, about Elizabeth's lifestyle, with husband being questioned.
    Perhaps the arrest is just round the corner.
    MOO.

    Me too, this does not look like the work of a criminal mastermind. How many women do they know who are homicidal? Makes you wonder if this was some random crazy act

    I understand from my sources that the couple was very much in love and that speculation about the husband is a cold take.
