A Berwick woman said police have identified her daughter — a former Noble High School softball star — as the woman who was found dead at the scene of a Thursday night shootout that killed the police chief of Greenland, N.H. and left four other police officers wounded.

Donna Tibbetts said her daughter, Brittany Tibbetts, 26, who was named the 2004 Maine Gatorade Player of the Year for her pitching, was found dead inside the Greenland home by a video camera-equipped robot.

Police are calling her death a murder-suicide or a double suicide.

“She was a caring person, and not for her own good,” said Donna Tibbetts.

The mother said she and her husband, Lenny, heard about the shooting from a friend and rushed to the scene.

She said her daughter had an on-again off again relationship with Cullen Mutrie, the home’s owner. She said her daughter, who described her status as single on Facebook, had broken off the relationship weeks before but had gone back to him.

“He was having problems. That was the kind of person she was,” Tibbetts said.

Tibbetts said she and her husband had only met Mutrie a few times and did not encourage the relationship.

The Tibbetts were sequestered in a room in a local school while events at the shootout continued to unfold at the Greenland home. They repeatedly tried to reach their daughter by cell phone but she didn’t answer.  They were informed of their daughter’s death at about 4:30 a.m. Friday morning.

Tibbetts said her daughter was a loving person whose family meant everything to her. She loved snowmobiles and jet skis. She worked as a hair dresser at the Hair Excitement salon at the Fox Run Mall in Newington, N.H. but left recently to concentrate on opening her own salon, her mother said.

Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney, 48, was killed in the shooting, just days before his retirement.

Maloney and the other officers were trying to serve a warrant Thursday to search for illegal drugs when Mutrie opened fire on them.
