Nearly six years after a woman died in a crash just outside of Owensboro, the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office is still looking for information.

On February 21, 2013 Dr. Lacy Brinton was driving south on the Natcher Parkway near mile marker 65 when her vehicle lost control. Deputies said soybean meal had been spilled on the road where the crash happened.

IN 2014, Brinton’s parents put up $50,000 for information on the wreck.

“I would just whoever did to come forward. Be honest. That’s how my family…our lives were always honest. I don’t know how they can keep that a secret. They know someone was killed,” said Tammy Brinton to Eyewitness News.

Brinton was 27 years old when she died. Deputies said they’ve cleared several truck drivers who were on the parkway at the time of the accident.

All leads & tips have been investigated but the sheriff’s office has not been able to identify the truck or driver involved in the spilling of the soybean meal.

The Daviess County Sheriff’s Office is hoping to bring some closure to the Brinton family.

Anyone with information can contact the sheriff’s office or remain anonymous through Crime Stoppers.
