Her voice weak from a recent stroke, Tanya Moore lists three goals, in this order: Bury her daughter. Get stronger. Find out who killed the 21-year-old, leaving her on a Fairfax road, her skull crushed.
“All I want is answers so that I can have some closure on what happened to my child because I don’t know,” Moore, 41, said Sunday. “Somebody knows. But I don’t know.”
Fairfax police found Shelinda Arrington lying unconscious in the 7100 block of Harrison Lane, just a few blocks from where she lived with her mother, at about 11:30 a.m. Friday. Police believe Arrington got out of her car, began arguing with another driver and was run over.
On Sunday, police said no arrests had been made in the death and that detectives continue to look for a dark-colored sport utility vehicle with temporary tags. Once they locate it, detectives hope to determine whether Arrington knew the other driver or whether it was a case of road rage.
