She wanted to attend a concert there. That weekend the park was also hosting its annual Harley-Davidson motorcycle rally and there were five to ten thousand bikers attending.

Arvanites left behind two sons, who were subsequently raised by relatives. She was divorced but she and her ex-husband were on good terms. Ashtabula police are investigating Arvanites's case. Foul play is suspected.
