Tina confessed she isn't completely sure why her son with saxophonist Raymond Hill made the fateful decision to shoot himself. "I still don't know what took him to the edge," she said, adding that he had fallen in love with a new girlfriend and had spruced up the home. "Because at that stage he had said to me that he had never met a woman that he felt that way about."

"He was bringing her to meet me for his birthday in August. He had decorated his apartment, that I bought him years ago," said Tina. "He had gotten a new job with a prominent real estate company in California, which he was very happy with. I have no idea what pulled him down, except something that followed him with loneliness. I think it was something with being alone."

"He was an introverted person; he was very shy, so I didn't know either, except now when I listen back to our last conversations, I notice a change," she continued. "The last few times we talked, the conversations were different, and I didn't know that until after the suicide."

As it turned out, Tina's late son was distraught over money and relapsed on booze before he shockingly took his own life by shooting himself in the head with a revolver.

According to the report, others close to Craig claimed he displayed bizarre behavior in the days leading up to his death. A male informant told authorities that he spoke with Craig six days before his death and observed "he was not his normal self," the report claimed.
