Florida cops are looking for a hit-and-run driver who murdered a 63-year-old lady and her dog in Fort Myers, media reported.
Kate Johnson and Diva, a standard pet, were crossing McGregor Boulevard directly before 11 p.m. on Wednesday when they were hit. Cops believe the vehicle that hit them was a light-colored Nissan.
Johnson had a dog-grooming business, Shaggy to Chic, in Fort Myers, her boyfriend, Phil “Phish” Ross, told.
“You’ve got to come ahead. They are going to find you sooner or later,” Ross said. “There have been many lives destroyed over this one incident.”
Ross told media he was lost without Johnson, whom he’d been with for approximately ten years.
“She’s an impressive person,” Johnson’s brother, Fred Crislip, said. “We got along great. I liked her dearly, and it’s going to give a big hole in my heart.”
Johnson also leaves behind three grown-up sons.
