A mother of three was murdered at a Texas apartment complex as she was making an Uber Eats delivery, a job she reportedly picked up after suffering a pay cut during the pandemic.
A resident of a Haltom City apartment complex found Ryan Munsie, 31, lying in a breezeway near their unit with “obvious signs of trauma,” the Haltom City Police Department noted in a press release. The person called 911 and when first responders arrived, they pronounced Munsie dead at the scene.
The exact cause of death is being withheld, though police are classifying it as a murder.
“She was working as a delivery driver for a meal delivery service when this offense occurred,” police wrote.
A friend told local outlet KTVT that she was a delivery driver for Uber Eats. Her sister, Erin, elaborated in a Facebook post that Munsie had taken the job to make extra money for her family amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“My sister Ryan was attacked last night and her spirit is no longer here on this Earth,” Erin wrote. “We were all so proud of her, delivering UberEats to earn extra money due to cuts in their income due to Covid. This is how she died. An UberEats delivery.”
Munsie leaves behind a husband and three children, ages 5, 10 and 11.
"She was always having a good time, making people laugh and was generous and kind," the slain mother’s friend Bailey Ables told the Forth Worth Star-Telegram. "She was just a really good person."
Police say that Crime Stoppers Tarrant County has issued a $1,250 reward for information leading to an arrest for the person or persons responsible for Ryan’s killing. Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers Tarrant County at 817-469-8477 or the detective assigned to the case, Cpl. Miller, at 817-222-7027.

"I didn’t know a person could feel this level of sadness,” Erin wrote. “I keep thinking I’m having a nightmare and I’m going to wake up any minute.”
The Haltom City police remind delivery drivers to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity to police.
