Cold Case: Fatal hit and run suspect vehicle surveillance video

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

It's been three years since a Lake Charles woman was killed in a hit and run accident on Gulf Highway.

On Monday night, we heard from 47-year-old Gayle Musk's family members as they made an appeal for anyone who knows something to come forward.

State Police Troop D is investigating the case which remains open. The key piece of evidence is surveillance video from a nearby business that shows what they believe is the suspect vehicle.

Authorities describe it as a white, 2000 to mid-2000s Ford F-250, extended cab. They said based on evidence found at the scene the truck had damage to its front.

In the video, it shows the suspect vehicle stop in the parking lot and a passenger exit on foot with the driver continuing on down the road. State Police believe someone has the information that can solve the case and urges them to call.

"Every call that we get we always follow up and on this case we followed up for several weeks running down different vehicles that people called in and people thought may have been involved in the crash. None of those leads have panned out as of yet. But if someone knows something, even if they think it is small it can help and we ask them to call us," said Commander Chris Guillory, State Police Troop D.

If you have information that can help this case you're asked to call State Police Troop D at 491-2511. Ask for the reconstruction team.

    Months of undercover work led Calcasieu's Combined Anti-Drug Team (CAT) to perform a drug raid on two homes in Lake Charles back in late October. Six were arrested and booked, but one of those suspects was able to get back on the streets that same day, leaving many upset, including city council member Luvertha August.

    The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office teamed up with the owners of a local 5 Star convenience store to spread a little holiday cheer. Deputies were handing out Thanksgiving turkeys instead of tickets to citizens of the parish. Motorists would be pulled over for minor violations such as not wearing a seatbelt or speeding and instead of receiving a ticket, got a holiday turkey.  50 turkeys were donated to the Sheriff's Office for the event.  Copyright 2017 KPLC.
