I doubt that the person who hit Mr. Banks will come foreward after 16 years, even though his conscience may bother him. If it was an accident and he had stopped, he might not have been charged. The reward could be helpful if he has confided in someone. There is always the possibility that he is not still alive. Hopefully, someone or this person will have some information so this family can have closure.

While on the subject, how about someone coming forward and revealing who ran down Pat Akins on Rt. 250 near Greenwood in Albemarle?

A high ranking city police officer's family was involved, the county sheriff's investigation was thoroughly bungled, and the state medical examiner's report was absurd and fanciful.

After half a century, does no one feel a need to reveal what happened?

I doubt that it will ever happen. If we are not naive, we all know that the boys in brown and blue look after their own. Afterall, they might need the favor returned one day!
