Uber Eats driver Pamela Rae Martinez took the photo of a man sitting in a nearby van after completing her last-day delivery.
Witnesses reported seeing the man standing next to the 60-year-old’s vehicle.
Pamela was later found shot and unresponsive in her car, and despite the best attempts by paramedics, she was declared dead at the scene.

moments before her death. It was discovered that she had taken a photo of a man sitting in the van. He has been identified as local Rusty French.
A search of his house found several handguns, one of which was matched by ballistics for the weapon used to kill Pamela.

“The man was later identified as Rusty French.

French, 62, has been charged with second-degree murder as investigations continue.
Under questioning by police, French conceded he was the man in the photo but could not explain why it might have been taken.
