A $10,000 reward is being offered in hopes of catching the hit and run driver who killed a Kirkwood man. The family of 50 year old Joe Auffenberg is offering the cash for information leading to a conviction. St. Louis CrimeStoppers is also offering a reward of up to $1,000.
Auffenberg was stuck by a northbound vehicle late Sunday night as he crossed North Kirkwood Road near Bodley.
Police have released a gas station security camera image of a car that was in the area at the time.
Also, police are looking for a man who was shopping at the nearby Walgreens just before the accident. Police stress that he's not a suspect, but a potential witness. The man is described as white, 45-60 years old, with gray hair and a white goatee. He was wearing a tan jacket and St Louis Blues sweatshirt.
Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 866-371-8477. Tips can also be directed to the Kirkwood Police Department at 314-220-4094.
