Fatal hit and run victim 42-year-old Suzette Werner Fatal hit and run victim 42-year-old Suzette Werner

SPOKANE, Wash. - It's been one year since 42-year-old Suzette Werner was hit and killed by a vehicle in west central Spokane, and the crime still remains unsolved.

Werner was last seen leaving Casey's Lounge, 2126 North Monroe St., Sunday February 8, 2009 around 1:30 a.m.  Witnesses said Werner was seen leaving the bar with two white males, but no one interviewed knew who the men were.  Werner was then struck by a vehicle at North Cedar St. and West Carlisle Ave. between 3:30 and 4:00 a.m. 

In an effort find out what happened in the last two hours of Werner's life, police asked anyone with any information about the identities of either man, or if they saw Werner before her death, to please contact the authorities.

Detectives said they believe there was little or no obvious damage to the suspect vehicle that drug Werner numerous blocks, eventually leaving her at West Maxwell Ave. and North Ash Street.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 327-5111.  This case was listed as a Crimestoppers Case of the Week in February of 2009.  A reward may be offered to information leading to the arrest of the suspect.  For more information, please visit www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org and click on the "Unsolved Crimes" tab.
