A grieving family is shocked after finding a University of Louisville student dead on Thursday, along with a mystery man inside a car.
WAVE 3 reports that the family of a 21-year-old, only identified as “TT,” became worried when they called and didn’t hear from her. They described her as hardworking and responsible and said it wasn’t like her to not answer her phone.
Using a phone tracking app, the family drove around Louisville’s Smoketown neighborhood, an area unfamiliar to them. At around 4:30 a.m., they found TT’s body in a vehicle in the 700 block of Lampton Street. Family members told the outlet she had been shot dead.
An unknown man was in the car with TT, also fatally shot. Family members are now searching for answers on why TT was in an unfamiliar area, as well as the identity of the man in the car with her.
The family said TT had a hair appointment on the day in question. She also worked two jobs but they weren’t sure if she ever made it to the hair appointment or went to work.
“We went looking for her because we didn’t know if she had left the beauty shop or not and went to work,” TT’s aunt, Terrilynn Hardy, said. “So, another cousin of ours had her location on her phone and we located her down to this street. Deceased in the car.”
“[We’re] lost with that. All we had was the GPS on the phone. Everything took us by shock. The phone pinging on Lampton took us by shock because we have no business up here.”
Hardy added that she doesn’t think TT and the mystery man were killed inside the car. She said the positioning of the man’s feet looked as if someone put him in the vehicle.
“Beautiful little butterfly,” Hardy said. “She was our baby and she will be missed I can’t believe it.”
