UPDATE: the mystery is solved. However, it's very sad and unfortunate:
Donna Chen, a 53-year-old Sarasota woman was hit and killed by a drunk driver Saturday afternoon, according to Florida Highway Patrol troopers. The dog she was walking was also hit, and it ran away from the scene. The dog jumped into the Gulf of Mexico and later swam up to a kayaker far from shore.
