APD gets a lead in hit and run case

January 4, 2004

Albany- Family and friends of 57-year-old Ginny Crissler are still waiting for police to find the person who killed her in a hit and run in December.

Now police hope new information will crack the case. The driver of a white car hit Crisler in the Hunter's Mill Parking lot December 14th.

The latest tip is from Mitchell County. A woman there spotted a white Buick with gold stripes similar to the description witnesses gave police the day of crash. Investigators have talked to the owner of the car and confirm it does have damage to the front.

"Our investigators have gone out and examined that vehicle and that remains under investigation at this time," said Lt. Tracy Barnes, with the Albany Police Department.

Investigators hope digital images from a nearby business's parking lot surveillance video can be enhanced to show whether the Mitchell County Buick is a car seen leaving the scene of the hit and run.
