Tamara Colbert Obituary, Death – At the residence where the victim’s wife was found dead, the police discovered a letter with blood on it, which read, “She was my world and I ruined it.” On Christmas Eve, officers from Hampden Township were dispatched to a townhouse where they discovered a woman who had been shot in the head. According to the police, Tamara Colbert, 39, passed away as a result of the injuries she sustained during a fight with her husband Christopher Colbert, who is also 39.
At that time, I was the only one who was at home. They chose not to have any children together. They lived in a townhome that was located in the 4200 block of Wild Orchid Lane in a neighborhood that was located off Wertzville Road and was behind the Giant grocery store. According to the findings of the investigation, Tamara was killed in a fight with a family member. The couple had been married for a total of one year and ten months when they tied the knot at the Cumberland County Courthouse earlier this year. Both parties included their respective occupations on the application for their marriage license: he as a locomotive engineer and she as a college admissions counselor.
Both had previous marriages under their belts. In August 2019, Tamara finalized the divorce that ended her first marriage. In March of 2020, Christopher finalized his divorce. Christopher Colbert was initially detained by law enforcement on Christmas and charged with misdemeanor counts of simple assault and recklessly endangering another person. A cash bond in the amount of $250,000 was set by the judge.
On Thursday, however, investigators received the results of Tamara’s autopsy, and those charges were upgraded as a result, according to the police.
Criminal homicide, aggravated assault, strangulation, and tampering with evidence are the new charges being brought against the defendant. People who have been charged with homicide in Pennsylvania cannot be released on bond. The investigation into this crime is continuing, and the authorities are looking for more information.
