A reward totaling $17,000 is being offered for information after a 20-year-old woman was struck and killed by a rock that was thrown into her vehicle as she was driving near Rocky Flats Wildlife Refuge.
Alexa Bartell was driving home on northbound Indiana Street around 10:45 p.m. Wednesday when she was hit by the rock. According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO), the rock was possibly thrown from a vehicle or the side of the road near the 10600 block of Indiana Street.
At the time Bartell was on the phone with a friend and the line went silent. Bartell’s friend tracked down her phone and drove to the location on Indiana Street and found Bartell dead inside of her car which was off the roadway in a field.
Friday afternoon, the sheriff’s office announced that Metro Denver Crime Stoppers was offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information in the case. There is a separate $15,000 being offered by the company where Bartell’s mother works, the sheriff’s office confirmed.
