Officers reportedly also found a 9mm gun and a bullet near the victim’s body. The victim had sustained a gunshot wound to the head.

The father of 21-year-old Heavenly Faith Garfield reportedly called police and said his daughter had shot her friend.

Investigators conducted interviews and learned that the victim “allegedly had a suicide pact with Heavenly Faith Garfield,” and they had been talking about it for “multiple weeks.”

A friend of the victim reportedly shared a text message with police in which the victim said she was “too scared to kill herself.”
