Former KU student Adam Lloyd Shepard will face first-degree murder charges in the hit-and-run death of former Lawrence resident Spencer Schott in Jacksonville Beach.

A car connected to a suspect in a Florida hit-and-run case that killed 1993 Lawrence High graduate Spencer Schott was found unoccupied Saturday north of Topeka, said Topeka Police Sgt. Kristen Hren.

Adam Shepard, 30, is suspected of running his vehicle into and killing Schott, 35, outside an apartment complex in Jacksonville Beach, Fla. on Jan. 22. Shepard has ties to Topeka, and police had been alerted that he may return to the area.

Hren said that there is no other information about Shepard's whereabouts, but police are warning anyone who sees Shepard to call police. First Coast Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to his arrest. They can be reached at 866-845-8477.

How weird is that? Topekan commits a hit-and- run on a Lawrence grad while in Florida then returns to Kansas? What are the chances of something like that happening?! O.O

could we try headlines like "Police Locate Car Suspected in Hit and Run that Killed LHS Graduate"?

I had to read this one three times to figure out what the heck it says. Does ANYONE speak English anymore?

Overthemoon, We weren't able to confirm that the car they found was in fact the car used in the hit and run.

But, I agree it's not terribly well written. Maybe "Police locate car of suspect in hit and run that killed LHS graduate?"

Shaun the original jacksonville article has the tips number correctly listed as 866-845-TIPS (8477). You can verify. The wrong number appeared in cjonline saturday. Please correct. 1st jacksonville article said he was driving an Acura with FL plates. Maybe dumped for an unidentifiable, cheap Ford to get to Topeka from council bluffs? Please anyone who has info contact TIPS or local police and get this loser put away. He is a serial criminal.
