A mystery woman who was caught on a surveillance camera wearing what looked like broken wrist restraints has been found safe, police in Texas say.
"The preliminary cause of death at this time is a single gunshot wound believed (to be) self-inflicted", Lt. Spencer said.
A woman who lives in the neighborhood, who chose to remain anonymous, said that a woman had gone around ringing the doorbells of multiple people in the area, but by the time they answered their doors, she was gone. From analyzing the video, authorities say she might have restraints on her wrist.
Inside Edition posted the video, along with footage of two other women, seen to be ringing doorbells in the dark of night.
Investigators say based off of information from witnesses, the man and the woman seen in the video were in a relationship and living at the home where the investigation is underway.
"The deceased's girlfriend, a 32 year old white female, who was not on scene when deputies arrived, is confirmed to be the female in the doorbell ring video", authorities confirmed.
The man, identified as 49-year-old Dennis Ray Collins, left a suicide note behind, officials said. In an effort to locate the woman, police conducted an extensive door-to-door search and circulated images taken from the CCTV footage.
By the time the residents came to the door, they said the woman had vanished.
Another unidentified resident told Click2Houston, 'We were dead asleep in our beds.
A Montgomery County Sheriff's detective responded to questions about the mystery woman at a 2 pm news conference today.
One of the neighbors had a system called Ring installed, which is a video doorbell and security system.
He committed suicide by shooting himself in the chest Wednesday, police said.
