WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - The family of Sandra Loepp is hoping someone holds the key to helping them get some piece of mind after a driver killed her in a hit and run last year.
“It’s been really difficult not knowing,” said Sandra’s sister Kristy Bottle.
Sandra was hit by car around 1:00 am in Washington Township on December 16th. The 37-year-old mother of 5 was walking down Van Dyke near Campground Road.
Her body was pulled under the vehicle and she was dragged a half a mile to the Washington Township Mobile Home Community where it is believed the driver just left her.
“We can forgive him for hitting her,” said Sandra’s mother Sandra Crowe. “I mean accidents do happen but when he left her there at that trailer park all night long that’s where it started.
The case is still unresolved.
Loved ones, along with Crime Stoppers want justice for Sandra and want to know who did this, so much so, a $10,600 reward is offered for information leading to an arrest.
“When they do call in a tip to Crime Stoppers to make sure they give as much details as they possibly can,” said Sandra’s sister Kelly Smalley. “There has been a few tips that have been called in and there wasn’t enough details or they gave a license plate and there wasn’t as much of a number there or they had the license plate number wrong.”
“It’s completely anonymous,” said Bottle. “You will not have to give any of your personal information. They have ways of doing it so when you call they don’t know where you are, who you are, anything. When they say anonymous, they are telling the truth.”
As they patiently wait for more clues as to why someone did this, family members told 7 Action News they long for they days when they would sit on the porch spending time with Sandra as one whole happy family.
“We just miss her,” said Bottle. “We just wish we could hug her one more time, tell her we love her, and it’s sad that we can’t do that.”
Crime Stoppers says they are obsessive about making sure tips remain anonymous, even hiring a company in Canada to do so.
