Raleigh police want to talk to a woman who may have been the last fare for a cab driver who was found shot to death.AAA cab driver Michael Palmer, 59, was found in his cab at the Quail Ridge Apartments in the 1400 block of Quail Ridge Road earlier this week.

"He brought a fare here from the Greyhound bus station and we need to talk to the person who was in the cab to find out what happened, if they saw anything," said Sgt. Kevin Carswell with the Raleigh Police Department.

Detectives released a surveillance picture of the woman, but were careful to say they only want to talk to her. They're not calling her a suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call the RPD's Detective Division at (919) 996-3555.
