While police believe there was nothing suspicious about her death, there are some unanswered questions.

The conductor of the Norfolk-Southern train told investigators he sounded his horn and flashed his lights, but the woman was struck from behind, as she and, according to the engineer, a man, were walking parallel to the tracks. And the conductor also said he was certain that the victim’s male companion ran from the scene after the woman was hit.
