On June 23, 1997 at 11:02 p.m. citizens called Glendale Police and reported a female was just thrown out of a moving vehicle at 51st Ave and Peoria Ave. Occupants of the car fired several shots as the female was thrown from the car. Police Officers arrived in the area and found the body of Gayle Crouch lying in a parking lot, the victim of an obvious homicide. Relatives of Gayle reported that she recently moved to this area from Rochester New York along with her husband.
