Family Remembers Richmond Woman Found Dead Under Car

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND (WRIC) - The family of a Richmond woman killed in a fatal hit and run is demanding answers and wants the person responsible to turn themselves into police.

Malik Cobbs woke up early Saturday morning just before 6 a.m. to find his older sister, 32-year-old Latoya Hopkins, dead and underneath her car that had been abandoned on the 21 block of Creighton Road.

Richmond police are investigating this hit and run and Hopkins family is trying to make sense of what has happened.

"I couldn't think of what to do or what to say to my mother," Cobbs says. "She didn't see the body. I had to go tell her. It was crazy."

Latoya Hopkins lived on Creighton Road and the hit and run happened only few feet away from her home where the tire marks are still visible.

"She was the best daughter, the best sister, the best mother anyone could have asked for."

The community put together a memorial with flowers and teddy bears for Latoya Hopkins, who leaves behind a son and two daughters.

According to her family, police have questioned a few people, but investigators don't have any solid leads in this case.

Anyone with information on who is responsible is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
