Mammadzada’s mother found her daughter dead with multiple shotgun wounds when she came home from work on Nov. 12, 2020, according to a criminal complaint. Mammadzada’s mother told police she suspected Eggleston killed her daughter because they’d recently broken up, and Eggleston had the code to get into the garage.
