Shortly before 18-year-old Destiny Parks was killed in a hit-and-run, the young woman behind the wheel reportedly said, "I'm not leaving until I get a body."

The deadly encounter happened Saturday afternoon on Hubbell near Midland on Detroit's west side.

A day earlier, Destiny had been arguing on Instagram with the mother of her 1-year-old nephew, according to Destiny's sister, Toiaun Wilson, who said Destiny was upset because she didn't think the 20-year-old was being a good mother to the baby. 

Wilson said she was on the phone with Destiny when the baby's mother came over to a relative's house on Hubbell with several other friends to confront Destiny. 

And when it was over, Destiny was dead after being hit by a car, dragged and then run over with the vehicle. 

Destiny's relatives say their nephew's mother was not behind the wheel but was in the car when it happened. 

At least one suspect was arrested shortly after it happened. 

7 Action News went to the home where the nephew's 20-year-old mother lives, and her mother tells 7 Action News that she's innocent. 

The family of Destiny Parks has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to cover the cost of her funeral.
