While the motive behind the murder-suicide is still a mystery, law enforcement and domestic violence therapists agree there was a relationship breakdown that could have possibly been avoided.

Jackson Police Chief Lee Vance says when he heard about the murder-suicide involving the young Madison County couple he was sadden.

The Madison County Coroner concluded that Myers shot Davis then turned the gun on herself. Vance says there has been a rise in dating violence, even times when the woman is the aggressor.

"We have seen many cases where females can be and have been as far as domestic violence incidents, and we have arrested a number of females," said Chief Lee Vance.

While the motive behind the deaths of Myers and Davis is still unknown, Clinical Coordinator Mittie Williams with Catholic Charities Rape Crisis Center says  there were a lot of possibilities that could have led to a deadly end.

“We don't know if there was a history of domestic violence or something that just happened over the past month," said Williams. "We don't know if that is a relationship that one person wanted out and the other one could not accept no. We don’t know.”

Williams says one thing is evident - there was a breakdown in the relationship.

“That is where it comes in," added Williams. "If you are having some problems or issues that you can get help. There are too many resources available here to get help. We have mental health systems all over this tri-county area. We have therapists and psychologists and it is important we exercise it and not try to do it alone. You don't have to go through these things alone.” 

Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker says there was at least one domestic call in recent months to the Myers' residence, but there was no physical violence or anything of that nature.
