A 20-year-old Peculiar, Missouri, man has been charged with fatally striking a pedestrian and then leaving the scene. He is being held on $10,000 bond. Police say that they identified him as the suspect in the collision that killed the 32-year-old woman several days later after he crashed his Dodge Ram pickup truck into a tree.
According to the Cass County Sheriff's Office, the crash with the pedestrian occurred near Interstate 49 and Peculiar Drive as the woman was walking home. Her body wasn't discovered until the following morning when two bicyclists came across it in a ditch near Harrisonville.
