The Hinds County Coroner says Dilek Taylor, whose body was discovered Thursday night, died in a motorcycle wreck.

Taylor, 35, was riding on I-20 Frontage Road near South Gallatin Street when the crash occurred. Police found her body Thursday night, but weren’t sure how long she had been there.

A Facebook video of Tyler riding her motorcycle was posted at 8:18 p.m. Thursday — the last post she made.

On Friday, her friends were mourning her passing on social media. Those who knew her commented on her sweet spirit, her kindness, and how much she loved her children. Here are just some of the posts.
