Reward increased for info on hit and run death

N-SevignyIt’s been over three years now since Erica Sevigny, 26, of Sparta, was killed by a hit and run driver. And the reward for information leading to an arrest has just been increased.

Erica was on her way home from work at the Crazy Horse on 14 Mile Road on Saturday, April 3, when she swerved to avoid a deer on 14 Mile west of Pennington. She crashed her fiancee’s truck into a tree, but was unharmed. She got out of the truck and called police, and was on the phone with 911 when she was struck and killed by a hit and run driver just before midnight. Kent County Sheriff’s Department investigators believe that the suspect vehicle was traveling westbound on 14 Mile Road, and that it likely did not have a large amount of damage to the body.

The Kent County Sheriff Department has been actively working this case hoping to find the suspect(s) involved in this fatal hit and run death. The $5,000 reward that has been offered since Erica’s death has now been increased to $8,000 thanks to a $3,000 donation from a local business.

“Police have already received hundreds of tips but are still looking for good, crime-solving information regarding this case,” said Chris Cameron, of Silent Observer. “Friendships and loyalties can change or dissolve over time. Perhaps someone with knowledge of this tragic event will now no longer be afraid to come forward to tell authorities what they know.”

Silent Observer guarantees that those who report information about crime are anonymous and no one will ever try to learn their identity. Anyone with information about this tragic crime is asked to call the Kent County Sheriff Department at 632-6100 or Silent Observer at 774-2345. Silent Observer can be contacted confidentially by using the Report A Crime section on their website which is www.silentobserver.org.
