For Immediate Release|
Tuesday, March 28, 2006
On March second, around 6:45 a.m. Ashlyn Dyer was running alone in the Presidio along Washington Blvd @ Kobe St. Ashlyn was struck by an apparent hit and run driver of an automobile that left Ashlyn lying beside the road in a ditch. Had the driver reached out for help, it is likely that Ashlyn would be in a hospital recovering from her injuries. However, the driver just drove away and did not seek help. On March 12th, 10 days after the hit and run occurred, and a direct result of the driver’s negligence, Ashlyn Dyer died because she was left without medical attention for too long.
Ashlyn was a full donor, and as a result of Ashlyn’s passing, many of Ashlyn’s organs were able to be harvested to save the lives of many others throughout the Bay Area. Ashlyn’s family and friends are happy that Ashlyn could affect, and save the lives of others in need.
It is clear that to solve this crime, we are in need of assistance from the residents, and community of San Francisco. Ashlyn’s family and friends would like to thank San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsome, San Francisco Chief of Police Heather Fong, the Presidio Park Police, and the Presidio Trust for offering up a no questions asked reward totaling $20,000, for the apprehension of the individual, or individuals that are responsible for the death of Ashlyn Dyer.
The family and friends of Ashlyn Dyer will be contributing $30,000, to the already existing reward of $20,000, bringing the ‘no questions asked’ reward total to $50,000. Our contribution accepts the same terms and stipulations that have already been set forth in the original reward of $20,000 which was offered by the city of San Francisco, Presidio Park Police, and the Presidio Trust. No questions asked for information leading to the apprehension, arrest, and prosecution of the individual responsible for the death of Ashlyn Dyer.
The family and friends of Ashlyn Dyer would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support and kindness that has been shown by the residents of San Francisco, and supporters all over the world. As one can imagine, this has been a very difficult tragedy to deal with. Your kindness and support has made it easier.
We are hopeful that the person responsible for Ashlyn Dyer’s death reflects on what has happened, feels remorse, and simply turns himself or herself in.
The reward is being offered because it is believed it may help to encourage someone that may know something to be courageous, and to come forward with information that may assist authorities in solving this crime.
Again, on behalf of the family and friends of Ashlyn Dyer, we are adding $30,000 to the already existing $20,000 reward which was offered by the Presidio Park Police, Presidio Trust, and the city of San Francisco.
$50,000 is the ‘no questions asked’ reward for information leading to the apprehension, arrest, and successful prosecution of the individual or individuals responsible for the death of Ashlyn Dyer.
