A close-knit community is in shock after the baffling death of a mother-of-four, as police reveal her body was likely found beneath a car by her own son as the result of a tragic accident.
Kim Anh Vu, 45, was found dead underneath her black Mercedes in the driveway of her Pennington home in Adelaide’s north-west, by one of her four children shortly after 7.30am on Thursday morning.
Police still don’t know what caused the tragedy but have ruled out foul play, declaring her death as ‘non-suspicious’.
Heartbroken friends and family rushed to the home of the single mother after hearing the awful news, but one of her adult children is currently stranded in Melbourne and may not be allowed to attend her own mother’s funeral due to coronavirus restrictions.

‘We are all going to miss her and she will deeply be remembered by all of us,’ a close friend told 9News.
‘Her son called my friend here this morning and then we were really shocked.
‘We worry about her children now… we will look after her kids.’
Ms Vu had moved to Australia from Vietnam three years ago and was described as a ‘generous loving mother’ who was very ‘caring’.
Two of her children are aged just seven and 10, while the other two are in their 20s.
There are now fears that one of her daughters, who lives in Melbourne, will not be able to attend the funeral due to Victoria’s strict Covid-19 lockdown measures which prevents travel beyond 15km from your home.
