A Texas mother-of-three was reportedly found dead over the weekend after her ex-husband allegedly shoved her into an SUV.
Melissa Banda, 37, was allegedly kidnapped Thursday by Richard Ford, 40, and her body was found in a rural area of Hidalgo County one day later, KRGV reported.
Ford was arrested late Thursday after witnesses reported seeing him force his wife into the vehicle. On Saturday, he was charged with aggravated kidnapping
Banda reportedly had an order of protection against Ford. She accused her ex of violating the order on June 30 by calling her.
The mother left behind three children, ages 6, 10 and 12, according to a GoFundMe page set up to benefit the kids.
Banda “coached her daughters’ soccer team, worked full time, and was always willing to help out those less fortunate,” the page said.
