Mystery of missing mom found dead in ditch over a mile from where her wrecked car was discovered

A MISSING mother was found dead in a ditch on Wednesday, a mile from where her wrecked car was located, according to police.

The discovery was made over a week after the 23-year-old's car was found abandoned on April 3.



Ariana Taylor, the mother of a four-year-old boy, was last seen leaving an Indiana apartment complex after drinks with friends.

First her car, a Chevrolet Traverse SUV, was found crashed near a freeway in Gary, Indiana, Fox32 reported.

A short distance from the crash site, Taylor's blue jeans and gym shoes were found.

More than a week later, on April 13, police announced that a search by cadaver dogs led to the discovery of her body in a shallow ditch a mile from where her wrecked car was located.

Officials couldn't explain why her body was found that far from the vehicle.

Police also indicated that it would have been impossible for Taylor to float from the crash site to where her body was found.

Authorities thought to have found her body earlier but it turned out that the first discovery was just a lifelike mannequin.

"On Sunday… the Lake County Coroner’s Office responded to what we were advised of being a death scene. Lake County Dispatch was notified by a Nipsco employee doing work in the area of 15th Ave and Lake St in the city of Gary. The investigation turned out to be a false alarm," Lake County Coroner David J Pastrick said in a statement.
