    Called too late i suppose? How much was the time difference between the call and the time police arrived? Why do i keep reading vague news like this?

    The woman could have been his daughter considering their age gap. What could be the reason/s then? Love quarrel?

    Why was such a young woman involved with such a older man?? My age, but come on, what would a normal, decent 45 year old man be doing with such a younger woman?? Anyway, RIP poor young woman, and as for the dude, yes, burn, and burn and burn in hell!

    my uneducated guess is that she wanted to break up with him, so he lost it and killed her.

    and who cares about their ages? "decent" men and women often date people much older/younger than themselves.
