DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta) - There's a renewed push for tips in a hit-and-run case in DeKalb County.
Sept. 27 marks seven months since local college student Danna Forero Rodriguez was struck and killed by several vehicles on Interstate 285 near Buford Highway.
The 22-year-old’s family made an emotional plea Saturday night, urging anyone with information on the incident to contact police.
“My family is going through so much pain, and this is the hardest thing I have ever lived [through] in my entire life,” mother Angelica Ramos said.
Forero Rodriguez’s body was unrecognizable when recovered, leading investigators to believe multiple vehicles struck her between 4 and 4:30 a.m. on Feb. 27. None of those drivers have come forward with information, according to investigators.
The events leading up to the hit-and-run remain unclear.
Family members told FOX 5 she went out to bars with friends the night before.
They're unsure how Forero Rodriguez could have reached that section of I-285 alone, but what's even more baffling to them is how multiple drivers struck a person and just kept going.
“That's inhumane,” cousin Lesley Tovar said. “I don’t know how people just kept going, nobody called, nobody saw anything.”
