A new report details the moments leading up to political fundraiser Christopher Kelly's fatal overdose. His girlfriend, Clarissa Flores-Buhelos, discovered him slumped over the wheel of an SUV outside a Country Club Hills lumber yard in September.

According to the police report obtained by the Chicago Tribune, Kelly said to his girlfriend, "It's my life. Tell them they won, tell them they won."

The report did not specify who Kelly was talking about. But at the time, the government was pressuring Kelly to testify against former governor Rod Blagojevich.

Police have ruled Kelly's death a suicide.
