Kenyan woman found dead in parked car in Arizona

She was found dead with a rope around her neck

Authorities said they found the body of Stella W. Kiarie, 29, moments after responding to a call of a vehicle stopped on the left shoulder of the Loop 101 near Bell Road.

Upon arrival, troopers found a white vehicle crashed against the concrete median wall. The car had some damage to its passenger side.

Associated Press reported on Sunday that troopers at the scene said they found Ms Kiarie with a rope around her neck.

Officials from the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) told journalists that she had injuries that were not consistent with the minor collision of the car against the wall.

One-year-old boy

Detectives found a child safety seat in the car and were concerned the woman might be taking care of a child so they went to her home and found a one-year-old boy alone.

The Department of Child Safety is said to have taken custody of the child. Investigators haven't said if Kiarie is the mother of the baby or how she died.

Ms Kiarie was an employee at the Arizona Department of Health Services.
