Police specify possible car models in fatal hit-and-run case

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland Police Bureau Fatal Crash Team investigators and officials with the Oregon State Police Crime Lab have narrowed down the possible vehicle that was being driven when a 63-year-old woman was hit and killed.

Nancy Schoeffler was killed at approximately 11:20 p.m. March 31 in Northwest Portland when a car had hit her while she was out on a walk. The driver of the car didn't stop and police have been searching for the car and driver ever since.

On Thursday, police said the vehicle they're looking for is a 1996-2008 black Honda or Acura sedan with damage to the hood and front windshield.

Investigators said Schoeffler was crossing West Burnside Street on foot when she was struck by a vehicle that fled the area westbound on Burnside. They also said shortly after the crash, two women were seen arguing at the QFC parking lot at Southwest Barnes Road and Miller Road, which is two miles West of the crash location.

The women are described as two white females in their mid- to late-20s. They have blonde hair, are short and stocky and wore baseball caps (possibly with Portland Timbers logos on them).
