WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - Crime Stoppers has announced an increase in the reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in the hit and run death of a Washington Township mother.
Police say Sandra Lee Loepp, a 37-year old mother of five, spent the evening with her husband and friends before leaving Santino’s bar in Washington Township on Sunday, December 16 around 1:00 a.m.
Friends thought she got a ride home, but Loepp began walking northbound on Van Dyke near Campground when she was fatally hit by a vehicle. With her back to traffic, Loepp never saw it coming.
According to police, Loepp was dragged less than a quarter of a mile before the driver stopped, removed her body from under the car and left it in the parking lot of the Washington Mobile Home Park.
The reward now stands at up to $10,600.
Anyone with information in the case is asked to call 1 (800) 773-2587 or submit a tip online at www.1800speakup.org .
