JOHNSON COUNTY, N.C. -- There are a lot of questions for a North Carolina State Trooper who didn't spot a woman's body in a car after a crash in Johnston County.

Carolyn Watkins' body was discovered Tuesday at a tow yard.

Investigators say last Friday the car was found down an embankment off of Swift Creek Road.

The trooper at the scene didn't see the Watkins' body on the passenger side floorboard and had the car towed off. 

It's still not clear how and when she died.
