On Wednesday night, a woman was shot in the head after she was chased down a highway by men in a white pickup truck.

According to Sgt. Jonathan Howard, three men in a truck were chasing Dinya Farmer at around 7 in the evening near Thomas Road in Phoenix.

Howard said that Farmer had reported that she was being followed before she was shot in the head and taken to the hospital in critical condition before she died.

“This increases the likelihood that the crime may be related to some pre-incident contact that has yet to be determined and lowers the likelihood that it was random violence or traffic altercation related,” said Howard.

Two or three crashes were related to the shooting, and two other people were hospitalized in relation to the shooting.

Farmer wrote a public Facebook post last July looking for help to deal with a child custody situation and breast cancer diagnosis.

“Hello my name is Dinya and I’m happy to find this community because for the past 2yrs I’ve been dealing with parental alienation syndrome and have no one to help me. My story began in 2013 when I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer,”  Farmer wrote.

The post in the group Parents Against Parental Alienation has gotten attention in the wake of her murder, and the group’s moderator says the information has been turned over to authorities.

Sgt. Howard said that there were no indications that the shooting was related to a recent serial shooting case and the investigation is ongoing.  A GoFundMe page has been started in Farmer’s memory.
