PORTLAND Portland detectives now know what car they're looking for in a deadly hit-and-run case.
Portland Police said Thursday evidence examined at the crime lab showed the vehicle that hit 63-year-old Nancy Schoeffler is a 1996 - 2008 black Honda or Acura sedan with damage to the hood and front windshield.
Schoeffler was struck around 11 p.m. on March 30 on W Burnside near SW Tichner Drive. She lived nearby.
Crime Stoppers on Thursday offered a $1,000 reward in the case of Portland woman killed in a hit and run last month. The victim's family also made a plea for help finding the driver.
There's absolutely nothing we can do to bring her back. She lives strongly in the hearts and spirits of the whole family and the community, said Nancy's friend, Liz Callow.
Portland police said about ten minutes after Schoeffler was struck, two women were seen arguing in the QFC parking lot just down the road and they may be connected to the hit-and-run.
Witnesses told police they were standing outside a car with front-end damage. The two persons of interest in the case were described as women in their mid- to late-20s, with blond hair, short and stocky builds and wearing baseball caps with a Portland Timbers logo on them.
The people who hit her have to deal with it and if they deal with it the right way, they will be at peach and I think that's how she would think about them, Nancy's sister, Jennifer Brathovde said during Thursday press conference.
Anyone who witnessed the crash or may know the identities of the women was asked to call 9-1-1.
