Police released more information Tuesday about test results in their investigation into last week's disappearance of Matula, 24.

Matula was last seen late Wednesday. Her ex-boyfriend, David Roe, had agreed to talk to a detective, but shot himself after pulling into the Eden Prairie police parking lot Thursday and died the next day.

Police also say tests confirm an unfired bullet found by searchers near Miller Park last weekend was in the chamber of Roe's handgun at some point.

Police continue to search specific areas for Matula.
