Local Business Owner Increases Reward for Unsolved Case

 

Up to $7000 is now the reward for information in the fatal hit and run of a college student in Pitt County.

Brent Lee of Lee of Greenville has just announced that he will add $2000 to the previous amount being offered by Pitt County CrimeStoppers for information that leads to the arrest of the person(s) involved in this crime.

The unsolved case of Austin Baeza caught the attention of Lee when the Baeza Family held a prayer vigil in memory of Austin.  As a father of young adults living away from home, Lee felt a special connection with the case of the 20 year old that was struck and killed on Belvoir Highway on August 18.

The State Highway Patrol continues to solicit leads from the community, and Lee hopes this additional award will encourage people to come forward.

Austin Alexander Baeza was found along N.C. 33 West near North Memorial Drive at 9a.m. on August 18. It is believed he was hit by a vehicle likely between 4:30 and 6a.m. The vehicle in question is possibly an older model Chrysler product to include a Dodge, Jeep, or Plymouth that sustained damage to the front right side including the mirror.

The family of Austin is campaigning for tougher penalties for drivers who leave the scene of a hit and run. They are also campaigning for quicker alerts to the community about vehicles involved as the community’s help is critical to providing information to law enforcement.
