Ericka Thompson knew something was wrong May 1 when her daughter’s car stopped moving as she tracked it on an app called Life 360, she told Channel 2 Action News.
Her only child, 18-year-old Angel Thompson, had stopped about 10 miles away from their Clayton County home. She was headed back to the University of West Georgia, where she was a freshman chemistry major.
Angel was on Ga. 166 in Carroll County, but the app showed she hadn’t moved in several minutes, Thompson told the news station.
So she climbed in her car and headed that way.
While on the way, Thompson called police, who told her they were working an accident in that area. They informed Thompson when she arrived that her daughter had died.
