(CNN) -- Angry. Sad. Grieving.

That's how family members of 62-year-old Carolyn Watkins described their feelings after her body was discovered in a car, days after it was towed from a crash.

"We were wondering where she was, and she was in the car the whole time," said Algernon Parker, 42, Watkins' son.

Her car was taken to the yard Friday after a trooper discovered it in a ditch in Johnston County, North Carolina. In his report, the trooper noted that no one was in the vehicle.

They filed a report, prompting detectives to go back to the car to search for clues. They found Watkins instead, slumped in the front seat.

I see now that there are questions as to whether she was actually in the front seat, or was on the floor under the dash. Still though, can’t believe no-one checked. I was thinking it was at night or something, but the pics the DIL took were in the daytime. Strange story, still... You’d think the officer would’ve checked, especially if it was in the daytime.

I’m still not sure what to think about this, really...

Slumped over or on the floor, hidden by airbag aside....

I would hope my family would be smart enough to put 1 + 1 together.

Mom’s car in ditch. No Mom. Uh-oh. Where is Mom?

No one blameless in this very sad story.

He looks a lot like them.

Too bad obama didn't jump in early and call the police stupid.

Well, soon the investigation will end. "The buck stops when we get to a white guy in the chain of command."

No way is a good way to die, IMHO.
