$100K reward now offered in unsolved Fournier hit-and-run case

The reward for information leading to an arrest in the 2011 hit-and-run death of an 18-year-old in Fournier has been doubled to $100,000.

Jessica Godin had been living at a friend's house and was last seen alive the evening of September 22nd, 2011. Police say she had left the home around 6 p.m. that evening and then was seen in town between 7 and 8:15 p.m.

Her body was found in a ditch two days later and police say she suffered injuries consistent with being struck by a vehicle that was traveling eastbound on Du Parc Street.

OPP say they've conducted over 90 interviews and completed nearly 300 assignments in the attempt to identify the person responsible for her death.

Investigators hope the extra cash will entice a person who has a solid tip to come forward and help them find out what happened to Jessica Godin in September of that year.

OPP Det.-Supt. Dave Truax told CFRA they want people to contact them, no matter how insignificant or common they think their tip may be.

"We need that information," he said. "We will leave no stone unturned. We are, obviously, as committed today as we were when this investigation was initiated and we hope to determine the exact circumstances surrounding Jessica Godin's death. We're convinced that there are people who know what happened and we want them to come forward."

The Government of Ontario and Sun Youth are offering the reward.
