Alexa Bartell: Woman Who Lost Her Life In The Attack
The officials found Alexa Bartell covered in a pool of blood after she got hit by the rock. She was on the phone talking to her friend when she suddenly got silent and unresponsive.
Her friend traced her location using the tracker and found Alexa’s yellow Chevy stranded away in a field. She was found dead in the driver seat of her Chevrolet Spark covered in blood. She immediately dialed 911
The Bloomfield Police officers rushed to the scene to witness the 20-year-old with traumatic brain damage and blood covered in Alexa’s lap and the door of the car. She was pronounced dead at the scene. However, she was taken to the hospital, where medical staff officially declared her dead.
Upon investigating the crime scene, the officers found a landscaping rock with a blood mark on it near the yellow Chevy, which had veered off the road. The car’s windshield was destroyed as well.
These shreds of evidence were sufficient for the police to rule out the incident as a murder case. Furthermore, the officers figured out that Alexa’s death was due to the rock that directly hit and not from the crash.

The driver was startled when he noticed that the suspects were throwing sizeable rocks at his Subaru.
One of the rocks struck the driver’s arm and shoulder after it crashed through the windshield.
The other driver who got injured was behind the Subaru, who got swerved suddenly to rescue from the rock before hitting his car, which eventually struck in front of his car. By the hit, the drivers of both vehicles were injured as well as their vehicles were damaged.
The accused has been involved in multiple cases of rock-throwing cases and has now been charged with first-degree murder and held with no bond. If convicted the suspects may face a life sentence.
