Family, friends of hit and run victim raise reward money for answers

The North Carolina Highway Patrol is searching for a hit and run driver who struck and killed a woman walking along the road looking for help for her broken car.

Troopers say 35-year-old Brandi Bost was killed early Saturday morning June 29.

According to Highway Patrol, someone called authorities around 4:30 am to report a body on the side of Centergrove Road, outside Kannapolis city limits.

Highway Patrol says Bost was walking along the road to get help after her car broke down. A driver hit and her and kept going, according to authorities.

Nearly a month later and no new leads, family and friends are offering a more than $2,000 reward that leads to an arrest.

Most of the money is from private donations and will be awarded through Cabarrus County Crimestoppers.

"We just want to have justice for Brandi…you can never put yourself at ease until you have all the pieces of the puzzle and she deserves that. She's a beautiful loving girl and she is going to be missed dearly," Childhood friend Erica Loftis said.

Though time has passed, Loftis says not a minute or hour goes by without thinking of her friend, who she likens to a sister.

"It's devastating, it's sickening, it's disheartening to know that she was left that way and she doesn't deserve that…not only family deserve that," Loftis said.

"Having something like this happen and not have an answer as to why or who done it..for anyone who has information put themselves in our shoes," Brandi's brother Jeremy Bost said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Cabarrus County Crimestoppers at (704) 93-CRIME.

Callers can remain anonymous.
