Dallas police confirmed that Patti Stevens, the wife of David Stevens, who was killed by Johnson on Oct. 12, was found “deceased in the garage” at her home. Police believe Stevens’s death was a suicide.
Johnson, 21, admitted to killing Stevens’s husband in October at a Dallas park with a “large-edged weapon” out of rage.
“It appears Mr. Johnson picked this victim at random. Absolutely random,” Dallas police deputy chief Rob Sherwin told The Dallas Morning News. “He just attacked him. … It’s just very unusual. It’s quite shocking.”
Johnson, who would have been a senior this season, was charged with murder and remains in jail on $500,000 bond, according to police.
