    Police records show that the boyfriend of the woman who was shot to death after a car chase outside the U.S. Capitol earlier this month had expressed concern about her emotional stability and the safety of their infant daughter.

    A report from the Stamford, Connecticut, police department said Miriam Carey told officers who responded on Dec. 10 that President Barack Obama had her under surveillance that was being fed live to all national news outlets and described herself as the "Prophet of Stamford."

    When police attempted to take Carey’s baby from her, she refused to hand over the infant and told police they would have to tackle her and her baby on live television.

    In one interaction with police, she said she was doing a reality TV show for the government and would only speak to President Obama, according to police reports.

    Carey, 34, was killed Oct. 3 after trying to ram her car through a White House barrier with her daughter in the vehicle. The girl survived. Carey had been diagnosed with postpartum depression and psychosis.

    The records released on Thursday by Stamford police also said that Carey's boyfriend, Eric Francis, called them twice later in December to report she was having delusions and becoming violent.
