    I was the one to find Marisa. Unfortunately her seatbelt would have saved her had she had it on. May she Rest In Peace.

      Kim – your comments are rude and WRONG!! It is in the police report (and all reporting articles) that she was wearing a seat belt! You clearly do not know what you are talking about.
