STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Police looking for suicide notes at the Stillwater home of a woman accused of driving into spectators at an Oklahoma State University homecoming parade have seized a handwritten letter and three handwritten notes from her Bible.

The Oklahoman reports (http://bit.ly/1Ho8x3g ) that in a request for the search, police told a judge that 25-year-old Adacia Avery Chambers was overheard saying she was "going home forever" just before the incident. The newspaper doesn’t say who overheard her comment.

Police say Chambers has admitted she was suicidal on Oct. 24, the day of the crash that killed four parade spectators and injured dozens.

Police didn’t reveal what the notes stated. They also seized a hard drive, a laptop, a tablet and an Xbox One controller from her home.

Chambers is awaiting charges in the Payne County jail.
