An appalling hit and run at Dayton’s We Care last Tuesday has local law enforcement agencies working around the clock to bring the perpetrator to justice. We are sad to say the victim, an employee of We Care, died yesterday.
“This was not an accidental hit and run,” exclaimed Rhea County Sheriff Mike Neal. “This was intentional.”
News of the victim’s death has only hardened Neal’s resolve. His department who is assisting Chief Chris Sneed and the Dayton City Police Department is leaving no stone unturned.
They recently upped the ante with a $1000 reward for help identifying the person of interest in the video above.
“We’ve been working diligently to get this done, but we’ve got to get the public’s help. We desperately need the citizens of Rhea and surrounding counties to come forward with information,” asserted Neal.
The vehicle is said to be a white Ford Ranger between 1993-1998 with a toolbox. Please note the manner in which the man is walking in the video. He appears to lumber his left leg along.
If you have any information, please come forward by calling the Rhea County Sheriff’s Department at (423)775-2442 or the Dayton City Police Department at (423)775-8403.
