A 39-year-old Frisco mother of three Christine Thi Woo was found dead in her car outside a Target store in McKinney, TX. The police and her family have been looking for her since Monday when her husband reported her missing.
The woman’s 2011 Honda Pilot was found Thursday in the department store’s parking lot at about 6.30 p.m. The woman was dead while her three children were unharmed beside her. There were no signs of a violent death on the woman’s body.
The children were rushed to Children’s Medical Center in Plano, where doctors said that they were alright. Ms. Woo was missing for three days with her kids aged 1, 3, and 5. Investigators assume that they have stayed in the car several days from their mother’s death.
Witnesses last saw the family Monday. The police found a CCTV footage suggesting that the woman went shopping with her kids at a Walgreens that day. Her death is however shocking since she had no life-threatening health conditions.
Police said that they now wait the necropsy report from a Collin County coroner.
The Frisco Police Department has an ongoing investigation into the case, and the McKinney Police Department offered their assistance.
The woman’s husband, Brandon Woo, said he last saw her when he parted for work on Monday morning. Surveillance cameras show she first went to Walgreens, while her credit card records suggest the mom and her kids went to a McDonald’s next.
Mr. Woo described his wife as a ‘loving mother’ and ‘the most stable person’ one could ever meet. The Frisco man said they had no family troubles that could have forced her to leave her home for good.
On Tuesday, Mr. Woo told reporters that he had a feeling something must have happened. He added that if something did happen it had happened outside their neighborhood because otherwise neighbors would have noticed it.
The man feared that they were kidnapped or involved in a car crash. But his worst fear was to never learn about their whereabouts. He also said that if the police finds them deceased he would be at peace because he could at least give them a proper burial.
