The sister of an NBA legend was killed in a tragic hit-and-run accident in Kansas City on July 17. The young mother’s family is looking for answers and seeking justice for her tragic death. The 24-year-old mother of three was struck by a car on northbound I-35 near Chouteau around 12:40 a.m. The young woman’s family is uncertain why she was walking on the side of the road, and they cannot find peace until they uncover exactly what happened to her on that fatal night. Her children will now be raised by their aunt as well as the victim's boyfriend, including her 5-month-old baby girl. Family members say the woman was working to become a nurse. Police are calling on the community for help. They are looking for a driver of a black 2004 to 2008 Nissan that has front-end damage and a missing front undercarriage splash guard. All the family knows is that the young girl was supposed to be out with friends but was walking alone on the highway. The family and police urge members of the community with any information to contact the TIPS Hotline anonymously at 816-474-TIPS.
