Last week, Jennifer St. Clair went on a first date with a man she met online, ABC-affiliated WC VB reported.
Around 3 a.m., the 33-year-old Florida woman was found dead on I-95 near Pompano Beach, Florida, per the outlet. Police believe St. Clair fell off her date’s motorcycle on their way home from the date and was struck repeatedly by oncoming traffic, according to WCVB.
Speaking at a press conference Tuesday, members of her family said that the man St. Clair was on a date with did not attempt to help her or call 911. Instead, he left her behind.
“We don’t know how anybody could do something like that,” Amy Gamer, St. Clair’s aunt said. “It’s the hardest part.”
In addition to St. Clair and her date, two other couples using motorcycles got dinner as a group on Thursday night, according to WCVB. Her family believes that the man was taking St. Clair back to her home when she fell off of his bike.
Witnesses who were there at the time say they saw a man on a motorcycle drive away after Sinclair was hit, WCVB reported.
At this time, information about the driver of the motorcycle has not been released by authorities.
St. Clair’s family say they want closure. Her sister in law, Becky St. Clair, started a Facebook fundraiser to raise money for her memorial service, provide financial support for her dogs, and cover loss of wages, Becky wrote.
“We will treasure the joyful passion for life that she shared with all of us,” Becky wrote on Facebook. “Her free spirit and loving nature will help guide us for years to come. We love her forever and we’ll miss her dearly.”
At this time, the page has raised $US7,923 of its $US10,000 goal.
“We’re still trying to process this. We are trying to get closure,” Gamer said at the press conference, per WCVB. “She was a very sweet girl who would do anything for anybody.”
