Grand Chute Police are investigating the death of a 27-year-old Appleton woman, Megan Rogers, as a possible hit-and-run.

Police responded to the intersection of Northern Road and Prospect Avenue on Wednesday night.

Rogers was found in the road.

She later died at a hospital.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

"Megan was awesome to be around, she was a lot of fun, she was great with kids," said Leland Dickie. He has been friends with Rogers for three years. He says she leaves behind a son.

Police said Monday investigators are still gathering evidence.

"Looking for anything, whether it is the possibility of tire tracks that they could follow from the scene,” Grand Chute Police Officer Travis Waas said. “Eye witness going to be the biggest thing for them."

Grand Chute Police say there's no surveillance video of the scene that will help them in this investigation.

Because of that police say it’s unclear why Rogers was at the intersection and what she was doing at the time of the incident.

"Unfortunately we don't have any cameras in that area,” Officer Waas said. “So if somebody was out on Wednesday night around 10 o'clock either before or after and saw something suspicious, even if they don't think it would be something related to the incident, please call let us know."

Grand Chute Police says there is no person of interest yet in the case.

Dickie hopes the person involved comes forward.

He says the family of Rogers deserves to know what happened.

"Person can do that and do the right thing, do what's right and turn yourself in" said Dickie.
