A Maryland man who authorities believe killed his pregnant girlfriend after he caught in a love triangle was found hanging in his jail cell Thursday morning, a few hours before the murder trial was set to begin.

Officials told Fox 5 DC that Tyler Tessier, who was charged with the shooting of Howard County teacher Laura Walls in the back of the head in September 2017, was found dead in a detention facility in Clarksburg. She said around 4:55 pm, after Tessier ate the breakfast, she discovered him hanging a bed sheet in his cell, and lifesaving measures were not successful.

The selection of the Jury for the trial had worked since Tuesday, and officers of justice, allegedly, were in the hope Tessier sentenced to life in prison without parole.

The police found Bags ‘ s body buried in a shallow grave in Damascus on Sept. 13, 2017. Autopsy reports showed that the red-light district – a teacher died by a gunshot wound to the back of the head.

The remains were discovered more than a week after the red-light district for the first time, was missing when she did not show up for the first day of school. She was four months pregnant with Tessier’s baby.

The prosecutors believe Tessier shot red light district because he saw another woman, with whom he was engaged to at the time of her death, Fox 5 DC previously reported.

The station also said Wallen had reached the woman set up a face-to-face meeting, where she was probably planning to reveal that she was pregnant with Tessier child.

A week before the Puffiness is gone, she texted the other woman and told her that “it is important that some things cleaned up” and that they “are just looking for an explanation for … woman to woman,” WTOP reported, citing court documents filed by prosecutors.

“He was not honest with the woman,” Montgomery County State Attorney John McCarthy said last year.

Bizarre, days before the Ramparts ‘s body was found, Tessier also stood hand-in-hand with Wallen’s parents at a press conference, pleading for her to come home.

“There is nothing that we can’t solve together – self and your family… we are just looking, or praying that you’re safe,” Tessier said at the time.

Tessier was arrested in connection with the murder on the day red light district ‘ s body was found. Her father, Mark, called him a “monster” and “liar” and said that the family had suspicions that he had committed the crime.
