On Friday, Carolyn Ann Watkins, 62, of North Carolina crashed her car into a deep ditch. The airbags deployed. A trooper sent to the scene could not find the driver and ordered her car towed. On Monday, when Watkins did not show up for work, her son reported her missing. Upon investigation, her body was found IN the driver's seat of the car that had been towed. She had been killed three days before and no one noticed.
This story is awful for so many, many reason it is hard to even begin to list them. Obviously, first and foremost, this is a tragedy for her family. But, it is also a tragedy for humanity. It is not entirely unlike that horrific story two years ago at a public pool in Boston where a woman's body sat at the bottom of a pool for days while people swam and was ignored.
Are people just not looking out for one another any more?
