Family of hit and run victim asking for help solving the crime one year later

NOW: Family of hit and run victim asking for help solving the crime one year later

MISHAWAKA, Ind. --- On the one year anniversary of an unsolved hit and run crash in Mishawaka, the family of the victim is asking for the public’s help.

58-year-old Joe Sanchez was walking home from a bar around midnight on July 20, 2018. That’s when he was hit and killed by a car at the intersection of Logan Street and Licolnway West.

His family is still looking for answers. They hosted a memorial for him Saturday in the hopes that someone who knows something about his death will come forward.

“Anybody that might have seen anything the smallest detail will help us,” Kimberley Eddy said, Sanchez’s daughter. “They took a life, they took my dad, they took a brother, they took an uncle, they took a friend, a well-loved man and that’s unfair.”

In order to help with the investigation, the family is asking the public to think back to the night of July 20, 2018. Police identified the vehicle of interest as a dark Ford Taurus which may have been missing a passenger side mirror.

Because the incident happened outside, it’s possible someone who was in the area or driving in the area may have seen something that night.

If you think you know something, you’re asked to contact Michiana Crime Stoppers at 574-288-STOP.
