According to police, they suspect that Bowles “interrupted” the suspect’s robbery of her 2021 Lexus RX350 between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Atlanta Police Lt. Germain Dearlove said at a news conference.

“This is not a way that a family should have to spend their holiday season, mourning and grieving the death of a loved one,” Hampton said to WSB.

“Our world has been turned upside down and for really no good reason,” her son, Michael Bowles, said, according to WSB. “It was a senseless act.”

Bowles’ stolen car was driven throughout the Atlanta area and has since been recovered, police said.

Authorities are asking for the public to help identify this person of interest.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS. A $10,000 reward is available.
