UPDATE 2:45: L ieutenant Gary Trupe with APD Special Crimes Unit, said officers have canvassed the neighborhood where the incident happened, and they also canvassed Strout's neighborhood. Police believe that the earliest the hit and run could have happened was around 2:00 a.m.
As of right now, no suspects have been identified, but police are working on a few leads.
Trupe said, after speaking with her family, there are some things that don't add up, for instance she doesn't usually walk, and there was nothing that she would have been on that side of town for.
Police believe it was a low speed event. Right now it is being treated as a suspicious death, or homicide for now.
Amarillo police need your help after finding what they're calling a suspicious death. Early Sunday morning, officers were dispatched to W. 15th and S. Georgia on a woman reported to be down in that parking lot.
Officers found Daisy Ruth Strout, 26, dead from an apparent hit and run accident. An autopsy has been ordered and will be conducted Monday in Lubbock.
Police are asking anyone who may have seen something at the address or who has any information to call Crime Stoppers (806) 374-4400, or Special Crimes at (806) 374-9468.
