I've ridden many miles with her. She didn't ride but she was always on the back of somebody's bike." According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Gunter was aboard a 2004 Harley Davidson ridden Thomas Bateman, 51, just south of Big Pine Key.They were reportedly rear-ended by a 1993 Chevrolet driven by 50-year-old Eric McHenry, which pushed the motorcycle into the rear of a 1990 Jeep driven by Tavernier resident Dean McGinnis. According to the FHP, Gunter and Bateman were thrown from the motorcycle onto the highway. Gunter was confirmed dead at Fishermen's Community Hospital.
