Age at Death:
Mary Truxillo was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was born into a family with her mom, Mary Abram, and father, Robert Bailey. Mary attended New Orleans Public School System throughout her childhood. She worked as a Psychiatric Aid Supervisor for New Orleans Adolescent Hospital for 25 years.
Mary Truxillo was turning onto a local street when two Jefferson Parish Sheriff deputies crashed into her while going through the intersection. Investigators told the news that the deputies were responding to a 911 call minutes before the crash happened. Nearby neighbors on the street came out and tried to save Mary but it was too late.
Was justice served?
There has been no justice for Mary Truxillo and her friends/family as of March 2021. The police officers that were involved in the crash were to take training on how to best avoid the situation but that is all.
