Whispering Pines, North Carolina Police Chief Jason Graham says they were called to a home for a psychiatric/suicide attempt on September 6th. He says upon arrival, officers reported finding two bodies inside the residence suffering from gunshot wounds.
Amber Jensen, whose full name is Amber Christine Beld Jensen, is previously from the Bison area. Evanson Jensen Funeral Home lists her funeral services for Saturday, September 17 as the Bison school gymnasium, where she spent many hours in school. She was active in basketball, where she helped lead her team to their first ever state tournament appearance in 1993.
