Family members told Fox News the bullet entered Quayle's neck, severing her spinal cord at the base of her brain, causing catastrophic brain damage. Her sister can't imagine why anyone would do this. Police turning to the public for help in solving the bizarre case.

Ms Quayle said, "Right now a theory would be road rage, or maybe just a crossfire maybe but we just have so many unanswered questions."
