Georgia model mysteriously shot in the neck while driving to work leaving her brain dead
Family members met at the Grady Hospital on October 10 where they are reported to have been preparing themselves to take the 28-year-old aspiring model off life support
A shocking tragedy that took place on the road recently has left a young model brain dead and her family with unanswered questions on how it happened. Relatives of 28-year-old Kelsey Quayle said that was shot in the neck while she was driving along the Upper Riverdale Road in Clayton County on the morning of October 8.
Kelsey had moved to Georgia only a few months ago with her boyfriend and had been looking forward to pursuing her modeling career in Atlanta. The young woman managed to get a job at a dentist's office in Riverdale and had been driving to work on October 8 morning when her world fell apart the instant she was shot.
Kayleigh Quayle, Kelsey's sister, told FOX 5 News: "I just want to know who did this. It's ridiculous. She didn't deserve this." Kelsey's family members all met at the Grady Hospital on October 10 where they are reported to have been preparing themselves to take the 28-year-old aspiring model off the life support system.

Kelsey had been shot in the neck while she was driving along the Upper Riverdale Road close to the Southern Regional Medical Center at approximately 7 am. Speaking of her sister, Kayleigh said: "She was beautiful, she was the sweetest person she was humble she was a model but she never let that get to her head. She loved everybody, everybody loved her."
The deputies who responded to the scene had initially thought that a multi-car wreck had been caused after Kelsey lost control of her car. It was only later that medical staff at the hospital found out that she had been shot after paramedics transferred her to the hospital from the crash site.
Captain Scott Stubbs of the Clayton County Police Department said: "Which we believe was the primary cause of her not being conscious, leaving the roadway into the length of traffic."
Kelsey's family members have told FOX 5 that the mysterious bullet had entered Kelsey's neck and severed her spinal cord at the base of her brain.
This led to the catastrophic amount of brain damage that put the aspiring model on life support for some time before the family made the decision to pull the plug. The family has also set up a GoFundMe page for the medical costs and the funeral that has exceeded the $5,000 goal and now sits at almost $17,000 in just two days.
Kayleigh cannot fathom why anyone would want to do this to her sister. Authorities have also asked members of the public with help in trying to solve this bizarre case. Kayleigh said: "Right now a theory would be road rage, or maybe just a cross-fire. But we just have so many unanswered questions."
