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.
