Poster Campaign Targets Hit and Run Suspect

Updated:
Appleton -

Appleton police are launching a poster campaign they hope will help find a hit and run suspect.

It happened on East College Avenue three months ago.

Police say a 19- year old Lawrence College Student was struck in a cross walk and the driver was caught on camera.

The female suspect was wearing scrubs and driving what appears to be a Chevrolet Impala.

Police say about five hundred posters are ready to be distributed across the Fox Valley.

"We're going to begin distributing those at first locally with an emphasis on hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, vet clinics, any place where people normally where scrubs or hospital type wear," said Sgt. Dave Lund of the Appleton Police Department. 

The posters feature a description of the suspect, photos of the type of car used and the victim, Shannon Grant, who continues to recover.

In a previous interview, last October, she tells us that an arrest will help her family have closure.

"It would really provide some sense of security for people I know and I think for the community that you know, this person isn't still driving around," said Grant.  

Lund added, "It's really our belief again as it has been for quite a while that someone knows this person."

Besides the posters, police have been using social media where the images have been shared more than 11 hundred times.

"As long as people are talking about it and it's part of the public conversation I think that's progress in this case, because eventually someone is going to give us something we need for the investigation," said Lund.
