Phoenix Mother Found Dead Monday in "Very Unusual" Accident

Phoenix authorities are investigating the death of a 33-year-old mother of four.A Phoenix woman was found dead on Monday, October 3rd, the victim of what police officials said appeared to be a tragic accident.

A spokesperson from the Phoenix Police Department affirmed that deputies from the office were reportedly called to the home of 33-year-old Mendy Brooks this week. According to police reports, the nurse and mother of four small children was lying underneath her car in the middle of the street at 3:00 a.m. in an area of West Phoenix.

The Associated Press reports that police investigators do not believe there was any foul play involved in the incident. Though they declined to assert whether she was suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or any other illicit substance, police officials said they believed she had been run over by her own vehicle.

Phoenix Police Sergeant Trent Crump asserted that detectives are continuing to investigate what they are deeming a "death unknown" in a "very unusual" accident. Crump would not elaborate further on the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident, but said Brooks' children ranged in age from 5 to 14.

According to a report from AZFamily, police deputies contend Brooks might have been at the scene of the alleged incident for several hours before police officers arrived. Moreover, little information has been given pertaining to the man who reportedly called police and alerted them to the incident. Officials did acknowledge, however, that the man did not immediately call the police right away, according to the news provider.

Crump said the alleged incident is one of the more difficult cases the Phoenix Police Department has handled this year, especially considering the lack of evidence and dearth of witnesses who have come forth.

"There are no know witnesses, no evidence of another vehicle being involved or seen leaving the scene," he told the Phoenix New Times. "We do not know how it happened or why she was out of her car."

Still, Crump also said that at this time, police officials were not pursuing any other possible suspects in the apparent accident.
