A missing mother from Tennessee was found dead in the trunk of her girlfriend’s car after it crashed in a Detroit suburb during a police chase. Her girlfriend then took her own life.
31-year-old Eleni Kassa was reported missing from Murfreesboro, Tenn., on Nov. 18 after failing to pick up her young daughter from school, according to a release issued by Murfreesboro officials.
On Nov. 27, Kassa was found dead in the trunk of a car in Dearborn, Mich., that was driven by her girlfriend, 36-year-old Dominique Hardwick.
Authorities were able to track Hardwick’s Dodge to Michigan using license plate readers. After officials closed in on the vehicle and shots were fired, Hardwick fatally shot herself in the head, the Michigan State Police said in a statement on Twitter.
According to the statement, Kassa appeared “to have trauma that was not a result from the crash.”
