ROANOKE Co. — Roanoke County Police believe an Elliston woman who died Thursday night was struck by a motor vehicle. Tara Farley's relatives say they are now searching for answers, and hoping someone will step forward with more information.
Sean Farley is Tara Farley's Brother. "I just need answers. I just want to know why what happened," Farley told News 7 in an interview. "She was too good of a person."
Tara Farley's Sister, Shannon Thompson agreed. "I just kind of want some answers, some closure," Thompson said. "And I want people to come forward and give us information something to help us."
Family members say Tara Farley was studying at Bluefield State with the goal of becoming an engineer, but she moved to Elliston after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Concern for others, family members say, was a characteristic that defined her life.
Breanna O'Dell is Tara Farley's daughter. "She was like my mom, my sister, my best friend. I could go to her for anything. She was always there to comfort me. I just wish she could still be here," O'Dell told News 7.
Farley was found on West Main Street near West River Road. Police want to talk with anyone who was driving in that area between 8 and 10:30 Thursday night - who thinks they might have seen something.
