Model dies after being shot in neck by mystery bullet while driving


Mystery surrounds the death of a model who was shot in the neck while she was driving.

Kelsey Quayle, 28, from Riverdale in Georgia, US, lost control of her car when she was hit by a bullet which severed her spinal cord at the base of her brain, according to the New York Daily News.

Her car then crashed, causing a three-car pile-up.

Ms Quayle did not die immediately but the shot caused major brain trauma. Ms Quayle’s family turned off her life support four days later.

The part-time model, who also worked at a dentist’s office, had moved to Georgia from California with her boyfriend several months earlier, Fox5 reported.

Ms Quayle’s sister Kayleigh Martin confirmed her sister’s death via a post on Facebook.

“I just want to know who did this. It’s ridiculous. She didn’t deserve this,” Ms Martin told news outlet WSB-TV.  

Where the bullet came from remains a mystery. 

“We have no reports of anyone reporting any gunfire, no reports of anybody driving erratically,” Captain Scott Stubbs of the Clayton County Police Department said.

A GoFundMe page set up to help with funeral costs described Ms Quayle as “kind, loving, sweet, and so caring towards others.”

“She was an amazing daughter, sister, friend and girlfriend,” the GoFundMe page states.

“She wouldn’t have passed so early on in life but she is now in peace and in heaven.”

The investigation into the shooting continues, with police reviewing surveillance cameras around the area where the shot was fired.

Ms Quayle’s funeral will be held on October 20.
