Late yesterday, April 7, 2016, detectives received information that led them to the identity of the driver involved in the hit and run in Hernshaw. The family of an 80 year old woman from Boone County called from out of state. They explained the woman suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and she may have been involved.
Detectives found her and her vehicle. They spoke to the woman and examined the vehicle for evidence. They now believe she was the driver of the first vehicle to strike Terry Stanley.
We are grateful for the publicity on this incident. Without local journalists’ assistance investigators may not have been reached by the family.
