Family wants justice in unsolved deadly hit-and-run

by: Catherine Bilkey Updated:


Family and friends of a woman killed in a hit-and-run are offering nearly $4,000 for information leading to an arrest.

It's been six months since 35-year-old Brandi Bost's body was found in Cabarrus County in the middle of the street, and so far there have been no arrests and no leads in the case.

"Brandi would have been 36 in November," said Erica Loftis, a friend. "So we had Thanksgiving, her birthday and now we've had Christmas. And we miss her terribly."

Bost was killed after she crashed her own car. She was about 1 mile from her home, so investigators said she decided to walk.

They said a car hit her near Centergrove Road and Penninger Road and took off.

"Yes, it was an accident, but it stopped being an accident when that person left the scene," Loftis said. "It's not going to bring her back, by no means, but it'll actually give a little piece of closure, I do believe, and it's just bringing justice, I would say."

Loftis grew up with Bost and said she brought joy to everyone who knew her.

Now she wants to know who took that away.

"It's terrible," she said. "It's very heart-wrenching to know the person is still out there."

If you have any information, please call the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office at 704-93-CRIME.
