    This might be the worlds shortest marriage.

    Three minutes after the last guest left the wedding party of Kelly Ecker and Indiana doctor George 'Scott' Samson in the small hours of Sunday, Ecker made the first of three terrified 911 calls claiming her husband was going to kill her.

    The first two frantic calls to the dispatcher ended abruptly, but moments later Ecker, 50, phoned back, her trembling voice pleading for help, before a volley of gunshots rang out and the phone line cut to static.

    Less than half an hour later, officers who responded to Samson's Terre Haute mansion discovered the body of Ecker, fatally shot in the head and neck and in the basement the body of Samson, 54, who had taken his own life with his 45-caliber semi-automatic pistol.

    The two had been married only hours before after a service on Saturday evening and the marquee tent erected in the grounds of Samson's home for the wedding party was still standing the morning after.

    Friends of the couple who have spoken to the MailOnline said they had simply no idea what caused the fatal argument between the two.

    'They had just gotten married and something went terribly wrong,' said Vigo County Coroner, Dr. Susan Amos.
    'He shot her and then shot himself. We are still in a second autopsy to confirm that.'

    Witnesses told the IndyStar that the couple had argued at the end of their reception and the final guest left anesthesiologist Samson's home at 1.17am.

    Ecker, a nurse at Union Hospital, phoned 911 at 1.20am, but at the present time it is not known what could have caused the happiest day of their lives to turn into such a tragedy.

    'The investigation has revealed that there was an verbal argument between the couple toward the end of the reception, which carried over to the after party at the couples' home,' said Vigo County Chief Deputy Sheriff Clark Cottom in an email to the IndyStar.

    'Shortly after the last guest left at around 1:17 a.m., Kelly Ecker Samson called 911 reporting that her husband had threatened to kill her.

    'There were a total of three very brief 911 calls, which in the first two the caller disconnected.'

    Samson, 54, is a registered doctor at Union Hospital in Taure Haute and one witness told WISHTV that guests left the wedding party because of the argument that the newlyweds were having.

    'They were having some domestic problems at the house. Within a short amount of time guests decided it would be best if they left. Shortly after the last guest left that's when things went terribly wrong,' said Cottom.

    When police arrived, they discovered the basement locked and so had to call out the Terre Haute Police Department Special Response Team.

    'The remote camera was able to determine he was in the basement, unresponsive,' said Cottom.

    Friends such as Brooke Llewellyn took to Facebook to express their grief at the loss of their friend.

    'Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine on this day that our time as friends would be cut so short,' wrote Brooke.

    'You will forever be remembered by many as the most outgoing and energetic woman'

    Cottom said that Ekcer was found in the bedroom her 10-year-old son from a previous relationship slept in, while Samson was shot himself once in the head with a gun registered to himself.


    1st CALL

    Dispatch: '911 what's the address of your emergency?'

    Kelly: '4205 North Creal. Please.

    Dispatch: What's the address?'

    Kelly: '4205 North Creal.'

    Dispatch: 'Ok what's going on there?'

    Kelly: 'He's beating the shit out of me.'

    Dispatch: 'Who is?'

    Kelly: 'My husband.'

    Dispatch: Who's your husband?'

    Kelly: 'Scott Samson. He's got guns inside.

    Call ends


    Dispatcher then called back, but that call was answered and then hung up


    3rd CALL

    Kelly: 'Help!'

    Dispatch: 'What's the address of your emergency?'

    Kelly: '4205 North Creal.'

    Dispatch: 'Ok 4205...'

    Kelly Interrupts...

    Kelly: 'Oh my God!'

    (Multiple shots are heard being fired)

    Call ends

    His mansion and the wedding tent. He is probably somewhere in Hell saying to himself, well it was a good idea at the time.

    "Something went terribly wrong" ie. She informed him on how now she was in charge and would be telling him what to do from now on......
