Family hopes reward will lead to grandmother's hit-&-run killer

Posted: Updated:

A family still hopes to find the hit-and-run driver that killed a 54-year-old grandmother two years ago, with a big reward.

On October 8, 2011, Sue Barks was hit and killed by a car in the 75 hundred block of Loop 12 in Southeast Dallas.

Her family says Barks was walking home from a relatives house at night when a Ford Crown Victoria or Mercury Grand Marquis slammed into her.

Police say the hit-and-run driver was likely going above the 50 mph speed limit.

Investigators don't have much more information about a possible suspect.

Burks family has been working with Dallas police to offer a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Still, the family says the pain has hardly subsided, after losing the grandmother of 10.

"It's been hard but we got so many good memories of her," Shluanda Burks, the victim's daughter, said, "so that's what gets us all by."
