Family and Friends of a Belcourt woman killed in a hit-and-run are waiting for answers.

It happened two weeks ago on Highway 5 west of Belcourt near the Sky Dancer Casino.

Heather Lenoir says her mother "Sue Buck" Boyer was singing karaoke at a local bar and then may have decided to walk home.

A short time later she was hit by a car and left to die.

Lenoir and her son Bozzy say they want the person who struck and killed their mother and grandmother in a hit and run crash to brought to justice.

"The most frustrating part about it was that the car did hit her and left her there, dead," Lenoir said.

Lenoir says she is also frustrated by the lack of feedback she has received from local law enforcement.

"I didn't get a call yesterday. I didn't get a call the day before. So it leaves my mind spinning," Lenoir said.

On the night of October 12, the 56-year-old Boyer left a local bar to walk home. She made it less then an eighth of a mile before she was hit.

"My fear is that whoever did this, whatever vehicle that they are driving, (has) probably already been fixed and cleaned," Lenoir said.

Lenoir says she has not heard if there are any new leads in the case, and is hoping someone will come forward who may have seen something.

"But now there has been so many days that have pasted on I don't know how anyone can live with their self knowing that they caused such a tragedy to my family," Lenoir said.

The Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Police did not return our calls about the case. Lenoir says knowing who hit and killed her mother will help with closure in her death.

"It's not going to bring my mom back, but it's going to give us a peace of mind who did this is going to pay the consequences," Lenoir said.
