Update: Christina Furber, Online Fundraiser, Found Shot to Death in Car Trunk

Update: Yesterday, we shared with you the strange story of Christina Furber, whose online portrait as a sufferer from hypermobility disorder contrasted sharply with reports that she'd fired shots at a police officer before being found dead; see our previous coverage below.

Now, more details are emerging about the circumstances of her death. She was found in the trunk of a car by a Pueblo homeowner -- and authorities have not yet determined if she took her own life.
