Mom of Teen Killed in Hit-and-Run Pleads for Answers

It will be the second Thanksgiving dinner Stacy Hofer prepares without her only son, Anthony.

A San Diego-area family is still looking for answers after a teenager was found dead, the possible victim of a hit-and-run driver.

Anthony Hofer's body was found in the brush off Heritage Road in Chula Vista August 27, 2015.

His mother, Stacy Hofer, is still looking for the person responsible.

“Somebody out there knows something,” said Stacy Hofer. “Somebody out there is living with a secret.”

It will be the second Thanksgiving dinner she prepares without her only son.

“I need to know what happened,” Stacy Hofer said.

The mother explained what happened that night: She drove Anthony to a nearby taco shop. On the way home, they had an argument and Anthony decided to walk home.

Police think Anthony was walking along the bike lane and was hit by a hit-a-run driver.

“It’s something I have to live with because we were fighting the last time I saw him,” she said.

Anthony's family is offering a $10,000 reward for anyone that provides information that leads to police to the person responsible.

“Let us have some closure,” said Stacy in hope the person behind the wheel is listening. “He didn’t deserve to die like that.”
