That’s awful, but thank God they found her.
Grandmother In North Carolina Found Dead In Her Wrecked Car 3 Day After It Was Towed
The family of a North Carolina grandmother whose body was found inside her wrecked car three days after it was towed said today they believe she would still be alive if a state trooper had noticed her.
Carolyn Ann Watkins, 62, was found dead inside her 2000 Pontiac at a towing lot on Monday.
“There was not much swelling and stuff like that, so we think she was living in that vehicle,” Patricia Parker, Watkins’ daughter-in-law, told ABCNews.com.
State Trooper M.D. Williams found Watkins’ car Friday morning in a ditch near Smithfield, a town 30 miles southeast of Raleigh.
Dustin’s Towing was called to the scene to remove the vehicle from the ditch and keep it for storage.
Parker said the family was never notified about the crash and contacted the Smithfield Police Department on Monday when Watkins did not show up for work.
The grandmother of four was found dead inside her car at the tow yard later that day, Parker said.
