Gorgeous Katy Benoit, 22, a recent University of Idaho student was found outside her off campus apartment, blasted multiple times with a .45 pistol.
The next morning cops found the body Ernesto Bustamante, who they believe had been in a relationship with her, with a self inflicted gunshot to the head.
A warrant had been issued for the 31-year-old, who had recently resigned from his role as assistant professor in the Department of Psychology and Communication, when they found him.
Boise Police Lt Dave Lehmitz said: "It appears that the victim and suspect were known to each other and may have had previously a relationship."
While police could not confirm the nature of their relationship, UI Dean of Students Bruce Pitman noted there was a university policy that bars faculty members from entering into romantic relationships with students.He also declined to comment on why Bustamante resigned last week.
