Mystery surrounds the tragedy, because Raymond was a person of interest in his wife's death, according to CBSSports.com. The police have ruled Leslie's death a homicide by asphyxiation from strangulation.

As police began to dig into the couple's past, they're uncovering that martial problems were present. Leslie asked for a divorce and Raymond began having problems at work; he wasn't rehired to referee games in the 2011-2012 NBA season.

What's next? At this point, police have more questions than answers.
