“He said all of their arguments revolved around alcohol and added that he has ‘anger issues,’ ” a detective on the case revealed.
Reports suggest their was a history of abuse from both spouses.

“Due to the situation, Kurt would appreciate if you can honor his family’s request for privacy at his difficult time.”
