A NASCAR driver was found dead inside her home, at age 43. The body of Candace Muzny was discovered inside her Ski Island home near Oklahoma City.
Police initially called the death of the former NASCAR driver suspicious, but officials from the medical examiner’s office have now ruled her death on Monday an accident from drowning, KFOR reported Wednesday.
Muzny's death comes weeks after she was arrested and charged for assaulting an employee at a nail salon for not speaking English.
According to the police report, Muzny got aggressive in the middle of the pedicure.
"We were speaking in our native language about my pay, and then she said to '****ing stop speaking that language or I will slap you in the face,'" the victim, Tiffany Nguyen, told News9 at the time.
"She got me cornered, and I fell," she continued, "But I was able to kick her, and she lunged and tried to put a knife up to my throat a couple of times."
Muzny allegedly attacked two salon employees with a knife and also cut a police officer in his neck before being arrested.
Muzny competed in NASCAR’s K&N Pro Series East series in 2011 and 2012, New York Daily News reported.
Her entire career spanned several years and included various top-five positions and over 100 combined top-10 and top 20 finishes, according to Bleacher Report.
