Heather Parker was 18 years old when she was killed on April 16, 2012 in Birmingham, Alabama. Police followed Robert Earl Fletcher in a car when they saw him coming out of a house known for selling drugs and stopped Fletcher when he found that the car’s license plates did not match the car. Fletcher fled, lost control of the car and crashed into a tree. The car caught fire. Fletcher’s passenger, Heather Parker (18) also died as a result of injuries from the crash on April 22, 2012. Although the crash was ruled “an accident”, Birmingham press questioned police policy on chases.
