CABARRUS COUNTY, N.C. - It'll be a year this Sunday since a Cabarrus County woman was killed in a hit-and-run. Troopers still don't have any substantial leads on who committed the crime.
Troopers: Woman killed in Concord hit-and-run
Brandi Bost’s cousin Emily Reeder said her cousin was beautiful inside and out.
“She was just full of life and could light up a room with her smile,” Reeder said.
A cross marks the spot where Bost was struck and killed near Centergrove Road. There have not been any substantial leads since the accident.
"The person that done this to her just kind of left her there,” Reeder said. “And it's quite possibly one of her neighbors."
Troopers initially thought the driver may be local because the hit-and-run happened on back roads in Cabarrus County. Bost was just a mile from her home and had been walking there, after crashing her own car.
“I wish someone would come forward and just be honest about it,” neighbor Tim Alderidge said. “It would be a whole lot better on the family."
There's a $4,400 reward with the Cabarrus County CrimeStoppers for a solid lead or tip in the case. The family said they want to know what happened. Those answers will make it easier on even the youngest of family members.
“…Especially my 4-year-old daughter. She asks about her every day,” Reeder said. “She doesn't really understand. She wants to go to heaven and bring Brandi back.”
Reeder just wants justice. Bost was only 35 years old.
