POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Family members said a woman who was found dead in Pompano Beach on Interstate 95 after cars ran over her body had been on a first date when she fell off a motorcycle and was run over.
The family of 33-year-old Jennifer St. Clair said the young woman was on a date with a man she met online. The pair went to a restaurant in Delray Beach and were heading back home when they claim she fell off the back of the man’s motorcycle in the middle of I-95 near Atlantic Boulevard.
St. Clair was run over several times while she was in the road.
“We’re still trying to process all of this,” said Amy Gamber, St. Clair’s aunt. “We’re trying to get closure.”
Family members believe the man St. Clair was with left her behind and did not stop to help or call 911.
“We know that the gentleman who was driving the motorcycle that night left the scene of the accident, left her out on the roadway on I-95,” family attorney Todd Falzone said. “It doesn’t get much worse.”
One of the drivers who stopped said he made contact with a man who was on a motorcycle near the scene.
“I opened the door, and I asked him, ‘Is that a person laying in the road?’” said the driver. “He said, ‘Yes. She’s dead.’”
The motorcyclist fled shortly after.
However, the family said investigators may know who was driving.
“There were three motorycles. One of the operators of one of the motorcycles apparently called 911,” Falzone said, “so we believe that the authorities have tracked that person down.”
Florida Highway Patrol has not said how St. Clair died.
“Unimaginable. We don’t know how anybody could do something like that. That’s the hardest, hardest part,” said Gamber. “It sounds like my niece was left there. She didn’t deserve that by any means.”
The family is calling on the motorcyclist to come forward and turn himself in.
“Do the right thing,” Gamber said. “Let us have closure.”
FHP is asking anyone with information or saw St. Clair on the highway to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.
