GREENSBORO, N.C. — A neighbor of the mother and toddler found dead in a charred automobile earlier this week recalled Asia Larose Brown as a friendly person.

“She always spoke when she saw me,” Shantaye Bell told the Greensboro News and Record.

Bell, 22, lives at J.T. Hairston Memorial Apartments at 1208 Orchard St., where Brown, 22, and her 2-year-old son, Ashton Paul Brown, lived at the time of their deaths.

“She was very sweet,” Bell said.

At approximately 3:30 pm Monday, city officials located a burned vehicle in an undeveloped area off of Thurston Avenue.

They found the bodies of Brown and her son in the vehicle. It is unclear how long the vehicle was on Thurston Avenue.

Police are classifying these deaths as homicides, although cause of death has not yet been established.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at (336) 373-1000 or text the tip to 274637 using the keyword badboyz.
