Karrie lies at the bottom of steep, concrete stairs as though she has fallen backward. Her feet are partially on the stairs, and her body is twisted. In her right hand, she grips a NASCAR checkered racing flag (signaling both the start of a race and the winner crossing the finish line); in her left hand, an empty prescription bottle. Her red walking cane appears to be falling down the stairs after her. Red in NASCAR signifies the race must be stopped immediately, usually due to danger on the track. Karrie is wearing a skirt printed with her brother's police booking photograph. The photo is overlaid with white text that reads: #NotDeadYet
