    Daytona Beach, FL Ė A preliminary autopsy report in the case of a 30-year-old woman found dead and buckled in another womanís vehicle over the weekend shows no signs of foul play.

    Thatís the word from the Daytona Beach Police Department as investigators try to figure out how Tarah Minchew died and how she ended up in the driverís seat of a strangerís vehicle.
    RIP Tarah.

    "Coleman’s friend told DBPD he had come to Coleman’s house around 6:30am Saturday to pick up some items he had left behind at her home during a party the night before and that’s when he saw Minchew and tried to wake her up."

    Ummmm, who goes to someone's home at 6:30 AM to pick up stuff they left there only the night before? That is hinky to me. What say you all?
    Six-year-old Shannon Sherrill disappeared from her front yard in Thorntown, Indiana in October, 1986. Someone knows where she is......

    Sounds weird to me, just because if she was on drugs or so much alcohol that it killed her, she had the presents of mind to buckle up. IDK about this one.

    Considering her past, I'm guessing that she OD'd, and I wouldn't be real surprised if she was in the process of "borrowing" the car when it happened. I also believe she was part of another story here several years ago; although it is possibly someone else with same name. http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...27#post1488027

    Under any circumstances, her death is a shame, but especially if she is mother to a couple children. MOO

    You are probably right, I forget people do weird stuff and don't always do things that make sense. I do think she was borrowing the car as you say. Just so crazy to find her like that. It is a shame, too young, and so sorry for the kids.

    If you need it for work and were too drunk to remember the night before.
