DAYTON, Ohio (New York Daily News)—The police shooting death of an Ohio man after he picked up a BB gun inside a Walmart store last summer has taken yet another tragic twist.
John Crawford III’s girlfriend, Tasha Thomas, who in a harsh interrogation was falsely accused of helping him smuggle the gun into the store in August, was killed in a bizarre high-speed car crash in Dayton on New Year’s Day, WHIO reported.
The 26-year-old mother of three was reportedly ejected from a vehicle that was being driven by a friend at about 3 p.m.
The driver, Frederick Bailey, was also killed after they smacked straight into a pole while traveling between 90 and 110 mph.
