Gastonia detectives investigating body found on I-85

The family called Gastonia police around 5:30 a.m., saying they found Beam on the other side of a guardrail right off the interstate.

Beam, her sister and another woman who was driving left Charlotte early Sunday morning in a white Jeep Grand Cherokee when there was an argument in the car, police said. 

The two sisters and the female driver got out of the car and began walking up the ramp, police said.

The driver told police she heard a crash, but didn't see anything.

She got inside her car and drove away, police said.

Beam's sister later called that driver to see if her sister was with her. 

When the woman said no, they both returned to this scene and found Beam dead.

Family members spent most of the morning at the scene consoling each other and trying to find out what happened.

“Just wanted answers, trying to figure out what happened, or how it happened or what's really going on,” Beam’s aunt, Caren Phillips, said.

“Maybe there was a witness that came by or maybe the person that struck her comes to her conscience and says hey what I did was wrong,” Sgt. K.C. McCabe of the Gastonia Police Department said.

An autopsy will be performed Monday, police said.

Beam leaves behind a 2-year-old daughter.
