Former "Bayou Billionaires" star Valerie Dowden Wells was reportedly killed Monday in an apparent murder-suicide.
According to People, the Shreveport, Louisiana, native was shot multiple times in her car near a McDonald's parking lot.
Srgt. Rod Johnson told People Wells was killed by Robert Paul Gaddy who killed himself after shooting Wells. They were both taken to a nearby hospital but died.
"We know they had a relationship of some type, but I can’t tell you if they were friends having a dispute or formerly intimate. We simply don’t know at this moment," Johnson said. "We have some guesses, but we’d like to back that up with hard facts."
"Bayou Billionaires" ran for two season on CMT in 2012. A rep for CMT told us they had no information on the case.
An executive producer for the show told People Wells knew Gaddy from high school and they "recently started dating."
Wells' parents took to Facebook Tuesday to share the news of their daughter's death, local station KTBS reported.
"This is really hard on us and her children,” they wrote. "It is out of order. No parents should have to go through this."
"Bayou Billionaires" focused on the Dowden's rags-to-riches story after they family discovered a large deposit of natural gas on their property.
