There are a few keys point when that we could analyze to know if there was someone in her car:

1) When she was passing by the Great Wall Market to headout and make a right turn on Gallow Road, there were two couples (a couple behind her car was about to go to the groceries store, and 2 women in front of her car and one of them holding something on her right hand. She look back when her car approached from behind).

2) Before she made the final right turn after a long stopped, the car behind her would probably honk her to get attention because she missed so many chances to pull out. I think the driver behind her could see if she was in the car alone. Her windows were not tinted. Why did I said so? Look carefully when she passed by the grocery store, pause right there, you will see her shadow in the car. Even when she first came in by pass the bicycle lock at the sign where handicap parking, and a car (fifth one counting from the left where Vanessa's car just drove by) backout. If you paused right there, you can see the rear mirror and she had something on the back close to the rear passenger head rest.
Therefore, I believe the car was right behind her could see lot of things when she stopped too long.

3) The Red Truck made a left turn into the parking lot would see something as well. I believe she might be off the phone. Detective could check her incoming call or outgoing call to make sure. I believe there might be someone gave her instruction. When she pulled out, a white Full SUV turned left at the same time. He/She could have a quick look if she was the only person in the car.

4) When she by passed the truck where Thrift store is, a car was a car try to backup. I believe the driver must pay close attention to wait her pass so her could back it up. He/She also have a good view of her car and a good look at her.

I hope the Fairfax Police would find the suspect and bring that person to justice soon. My condolences to Vanessa's family. I didn't know Vanessa or her family, but this stragedy will leave a big footprint in their parent's heart because she is the only child. May God bless you and your family.
