This is so sad, it breaks my heart. My deepest sympathies to her entire family.

Like her Aunt said, she may not have been an angel child, but no one deserves to just be dumped off.

May God bless and keep her. Maybe she will have it better than the struggles she endured here.

how can you say she was a good mother when she wasnt even there for her kids. They were dumped off at their grandmothers who is now left to raise them when she should be enjoying her aging years. Give me a break. No, she did not deserve to be dumped on the side of the road. I feel for this lady but stop trying to sugar coat things.

Sad tragedy for the mom and children. My prayers go out to the children left to journey this world without a mom.

The marriage rate in the black community is very low and the out of wed lock births are very high. Blacks are not big on traditional families so this type of stuff is going to happen.

Shouldn't it be Memphis Ho Found Murdered? The Mom part was obviously not at the top of her priority list.

Why is no one talking about the rest of the story? It only takes simple investigation to determine she was working the truck stops, bedding down with the truckers. I'm sure drugs were in her system at the time of her death. I'm baffled (once again) that the local coroner cannot figure this out.

Deepest sympathies to the surviving children. Hoping you end up raised better. Alas... Darwinism is not far away for these poor children.

WOW! At the end of the day she was still a human being with transgressions. We have All sinned and come short of his goodness. FYI, next time check your grammar and spelling before posting such a ludicrous comment!

WOW!! Look at your name, then read your post and check for English/spelling.

It doesn't matter what she did, who she was, what she did/didn't do, this is a sad story. No human being deserves this. This country and especially Memphis no longer respects human life.
So sad

"You're 36. Who do you have to explain yourself to? You don't have to," said Killebrew when asked if Vaughn's family knew where she was.

What? When you have three kids, you have plenty of explaining to do, your kids, or at least whoever is taking care of your kids, should know where you are. For so many reasons..
just sad

I am an avid watcher of true crime programs and on every one there is one thing the detectives always say, "It does not matter who the victim was. The victim did not deserve to be murdered and is a VICTIM." No matter what the findings of her autopsy, what she did in life should not be a reflection on her death. She didn't just walked to the rest area and lay down and die. Someone left her there either alive, partially alive, or dead. I send condolences to her family and hope they have answers to her death soon.

I find it completely sad a person chooses drug addiction & prostitute in an educated society where the first 12 years of education are offered for free! People need to stop being selfish and learn a simple trait, pro-progress. Individually it is best to aspire to the positive, grow upon the creative and shy away from; wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.

Too, my thoughts go to her children to aspire change.

What you posted are obviously undeniable truths. But I think the bigger problem is blacks unwillingness to admit or even discuss that these are real issues in their communities. It is much easier and more PC to blame everything and everybody else.

Don't know about the victim, do not know if she was a A+ mom, or a F-reject. REGARDLESS, she did not deserve to be murdered. I hope who ever killed gets arrested, convicted, and gets the needle...

everyone seems to be missing tha point this is a woman that is dead and she may not have been there for her kids but her children and family love her their grieving at this moment and all of you would be too if she was your family so stop being so judgemental and pray for her kids and the rest of her family!!!!!!!!!
