Detailer shocked by SUV’s bloody interior

SANTA BARBARA, CA — A detail shop owner called in the highway patrol when he saw the inside of a customer’s SUV.

SANTA BARBARA, CA — The owner of Woody’s Detail here called the California Highway Patrol (CHP) when a customer dropped off a car with a bloody interior, KSBY reported.

The June 12 story stated that Owner Lynwood Robinson said the SUV had so much blood inside that he was “shocked.” The customer said her car was used to pick up two seriously hurt women and take them to the hospital.

Robinson did not want to seem overly suspicious, but the bloody interior looked like something out of a movie. He called the hospital to verify the story and was referred to the CHP.

The CHP confirmed the story, but asked to look at the vehicle before it was detailed. After taking some pictures of the SUV, they initially said it could be detailed. But, the CHP later called back and made a second visit to the detail shop to take a closer look.

Robinson said the CHP pointed out heel marks on the left and right side of the vehicle, damage to the front of the vehicle as well as a dent in the hood. The SUV was finally detailed and returned to the woman after the CHP gave clearance.

The vehicle was evidently used to pick up and transport Allison Meadows and Lindsay Keebler. Meadows was killed and Keebler was seriously hurt on Wednesday of last week. On Friday, the CHP filed charges against L. Tyrone Richardson, 28, in connection with the death of Meadows. Richardson was one of two men that brought the two women to a local hospital claiming to be “good Samaritans” who were passing through the area.
