Crime Stoppers offers reward in fatal hit-and-run case
The Portland Police Bureau and Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for help solving the March 31 fatal hit-and-run that killed a 63-year-old Portland woman.
Police said the incident happened about 11:20 p.m. in the 2800 block of West Burnside Street. Police found Nancy Margaret Schoeffler dead in the street. Traffic investigators have determined that she was crossing West Burnside Street when she was struck by a vehicle that fled west on Burnside.
A short time later, two women were seen arguing at the QFC grocery store parking lot at Southwest Barnes and Miller roads, about two miles west of where Schoeffler was killed. The vehicle police are looking for is a late '90s black Honda Accord sedan with damage to the hood and front windshield.
The women arguing in the parking lot were short, stocky in their 20s, with blonde hair, wearing caps with what looked like Portland Timbers logos.
