$50Gs reward for info in woman’s death

Ontario Provincial Police are offering a $50,000 reward for anyone with a tip leading to an arrest in the hit and run death of a Casselman woman.

“We’re looking for more information,” said Sgt. Kristine Rae. “We haven’t made an arrest yet.”

Jessica Godin, 18, was found in a ditch by a passerby on Sept. 24, 2011 along Du Parc St. in Fournier, nearly 120 km east of downtown Ottawa.

Police said Godin left a home around 6 p.m. on Sept. 22 and was last seen between 7 and 8:15 p.m.

She had been living with a friend in Casselman.

Investigators believe Godin was struck by a vehicle travelling eastbound on Du Parc St. Cops are trying to find the car and driver.

On Friday, police will be on Du Parc St. canvassing motorists between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Last October, Hawkesbury OPP raided a home and seized a vehicle.

“That vehicle was released,” said Rae.

In addition, police are using social media. The Hawkesbury OPP crime unit has posted a second video on YouTube asking for tips.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or call Det. Const. Dan Fedele at 613-632-2729.
