(Fox News) A Georgia mom says she is searching for answers after her daughter’s body was allegedly dumped on the side of the road after the girl died of an apparent asthma attack.
MyFoxAtlanta.com reports 20-year-old Taylor Smith was with friends when she suffered the attack, and the friends allegedly dumped her lifeless body near a trailer park after apparently attempting to revive her.
One of the friends, 38-year-old Marty Gaddis, was arrested and faces charges that include concealing a death and abandonment of a body.
Smith’s mother, Tanya Smith, says she wants to know why the group abandoned her daughter and did not seek medical help when she first had the attack.
“I can’t imagine what they were thinking. It is heart breaking,” Smith, who is a local police lieutenant, told MyFoxAtlanta.com.
Smith says she hopes other young women will learn from her daughter’s story, and not be as trusting around so-called “friends.”
“Not everybody that you meet that says, ‘I care about you,’ actually cares about you. Be cautious and be around people that you can trust,” Smith told MyFoxAtlanta.com.
Smith said some of the other people with her daughter that night may also be charged.
Stripped naked — apart from her underwear — her killer had bound her hands and feet before tying a plastic bag over her head.

MyFoxDFW.com reports the landlord, who rents out two homes next to one another, initially stopped by because the other home had been burglarized. According to a police report, the thief had broken a window and stole a shotgun.
The landlord discovered the body of a woman in her 20s when he went to go check on the couple that lives in the other house.
Neighbors tell MyFoxDFW.com a couple in their mid-20s lives in the home, but their truck has not been seen since Monday. Authorities declined to comment on the case.
