The unnamed, 3rd roommate was reportedly brought in by police for a second round of questioning about what caused Gloria Farmer's passing.  Armed with new information from the family friend, interrogators asked more specific questions about the mysterious death.  According to KWTX, that's when the roommate told police that 41-year-old Gloria Jordan sat on Farmer's chest and killed her.

The Witness Was Afraid of Telling Texas Police What Happened to Gloria Farmer

The unnamed roommate told investigators that she didn't come forward with what she knew about the death because she was afraid Jordan would retaliate.  She told police that while Farmer sat in an office chair, Jordan placed her hand on Farmer's forehead and pushed.  That caused Farmer and the chair to fall over backwards.
