Tasha Thomas, Former Girlfriend Of John Crawford III, Killed In Crash

The girlfriend of John Crawford III has reportedly been killed in a car crash in Dayton.

Several news outlets are reporting two victims of a high-speed crash on New Year’s day turned out to be Tasha Thomas, age 26, and Frederick Bailey, age 30.

Thomas, who’s from Fairborn, was waiting in the parking lot for John Crawford III when he was shot and killed by Beavercreek police inside a Walmart in August. She was part of the recent investigation of his death, which led to no indictment from a grand jury in September. Just a few weeks ago, the Guardian online released a video of Thomas being interrogated by Beavercreek police.

Reports say the car likely crashed going up to 100 miles per hour in a 35 zone, and Bailey was driving the car.
